When she was 15, Jennifer Mee developed an unrelenting case of the hiccups - hiccupping as many as 50 times a minute for months. Soon the Florida teen's strange story went viral. Dubbed the "Hiccup Girl" by the media, she gained international sympathy and appeared on a slew of popular TV shows. Eventually Jennifer's hiccups went away, and so did her fame. Depressed and craving affection, Jennifer hooked up with the wrong people and slipped into drug dealing and street life - a downward spiral that led to the murder of an innocent young man. Now, renowned investigative journalist M. William Phelps expertly recounts Jennifer's shocking true story of thwarted desires, betrayed trust, and deadly manipulation.

I'll be returning this book at my first opportunity. Poorly written, too long for the content, boring story, wrong narrator... I can't say anything good about this book.

How a youtube oddity--The Hiccup Girl--missing her fame after weeks in the limelight due to her strange affliction, turned to drugs, violence--and murder
Tedious , not riviting, but complelling. narration was excellent and meaningful added to the story line. As a reader you seriously
wanted the end to be different.
