Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who were the seemingly ordinary teenagers who beat and killed a girl who longed to be their friend? And how could they hide the murder from their parents and teachers and the police for andlt;iandgt;eight days?andlt;/iandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt; Drawing on six years of research — including interviews with the accused — acclaimed writer Rebecca Godfrey answers these questions in this stunning account of the notorious "Schoolgirl Murder." Through a skillful blend of hard journalism and riveting narrative, Godfrey takes us into the bedrooms and classrooms of a powerful hip-hop-obsessed clique and the loner-victim who just wanted to belong, then into the police stations and courtrooms where adults — grieving, devastated — must reckon with the shocking crime. Highlighting along the way the deeply entrenched social tensions that provoked the murder, andlt;iandgt;Under the Bridgeandlt;/iandgt; is more than a true-crime book — it is an unforgettable wake-up call.

Synopsis:

By twists and turns, this work examines a crime of passionate excess, in which middle-class teenage girls obsessed with film idols and hip-hop culture turn on one of their own with tragic results.

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood," this work is a gripping, true-crime story of a group of middle school teenagers who beat a female classmate to death, and then tried to cover up the crime. Includes a new Afterword by the author.
