    From true crime legend Ann Rules comes this riveting story of a young woman whose life ended too soon - and a determined mother’s crusade to clear her daughter’s name. Barb Thompson never for one moment believed her daughter committed suicide.

    "Good book, poor narrator choice"
    Overall

    Maybe it's just me, but the mismatch of voice and oral interpretation with the content was frequently distracting, to the point that several times I wanted to turn it off. (And I would have, if not for the subject and needing to know how the case played out.) Listening was not enjoyable, as I had to consciously focus on what was being said and try to ignore how it was being said. As for the book itself--not Rule's best but not her worst, either, and well worth reading. Ronda Reynolds' story needed to be told and I'm glad Rule told it. She deserves justice and her mom is truly a compelling and inspirational subject.
