    In the collection's title story, a pack of girls raised by wolves are painstakingly reeducated by nuns. In "Haunting Olivia", two young boys make midnight trips to a boat graveyard in search of their dead sister, who set sail in the exoskeleton of a giant crab. In "Sleepaway Camp for Disordered Dreamers", a boy whose dreams foretell implacable tragedies is sent to a summer camp for troubled sleepers (Cabin 1, Narcoleptics; Cabin 2, Sleep Apneics; Cabin 3, Somnambulists . . . ).

    Story

    I expected whimsical and/or weird because of the name. I never even made it to the title story. I can't explain exactly why I didn't care for the book. All the stories felt the same, I skipped over one or two. I finally just gave up. I can't even come up with one redeeming quality. This was a complete waste of a credit.

    It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

    Story

    I found Jeff Ashton a compelling element in this trial. His passion for justice in this case was infectious. I loved his speaking style and voice.

    Unfortunately, his narration falls a little flat. Sometimes he really "gets going" and the spark I found so enjoyable to listen to is there. More often, he sounds like he is reading something he is only mildly familiar with.

    The review of the case is interesting, the "behind the scenes" is interesting. I was just expecting a little more from this book. Worth listening to but not as great as I had hoped.
