Review: When a Child Kills

User Review  - Robyn Weaver - Goodreads

This was incredibly difficult to get through--not because it was bad; because it is horribly sad. However, I feel much more informed on signs of any form of child abuse. A good read if you're willing to read detailed accounts of verbal, physical, emotional and sexual child abuse. Read full review

User Review  - Rhonda - Goodreads

I have read a lot of true crime books..this one was quite different from the others as it has many stories in it..and a lot of statistics...after reading it ...it makes more sense though what drove these kids to do what they did..too bad people in their life didn't step in sooner...
