Review: Lizzie

User Review  - Liz Moffett - Goodreads

Couldn't finish it- which is rare for me. The court room chapters were so tedious and difficult to read. I finally just skipped to the end to read the part where she killed her parents. I only paid $.25 for it at a used book sale. Sometimes you get what you pay for ;0) Read full review
