Publisher's Summary

"It starts with a thrumming in Shanda's ears, a sound very much like the thick, coursing current of a river swelling its banks. Gradually she becomes aware that the frantic pulse is not water but blood rushing through her veins, echoing in the pitch-black cavern of her inner ear.

"The deafening thunder grows louder, terror wrapping its icy fingers around her pounding heart until she fears she may drown in her own blood. Louder and fiercer, it doubles and triples in intensity.

"Abruptly, all falls silent.

"Except for the laughter.

"Still entombed in flames, she gasps for breath, but instead of fresh air she swallows fire.

"And then it starts.

"A scream pierces her to the core.

"And then another. Another.

'Her own screaming as she knows she is burning alive.

"And in the distance, but still audible, the laughter again.

"Then, mercifully, she lapses into unconsciousness."

The nightmare that 12-year-old Shanda Sharer had to endure was beyond horrifying. Kidnapped and beaten, stabbed, tortured, and then burned alive by her assailants, one can only imagine the horror she suffered in the last moments of her life.

Her attackers, four teenagers who, following the instructions of a girl who was motivated just by pure, selfish jealousy - gladly joined in the horrible murder plot, without even an inkling of sorrow or remorse for their victim.

Based on the true story of 12-year-old Shanda Sharer, whose murder gained nationwide notoriety, Green Eyed Monster provides a terrifying glimpse into the minds of her killers, young girls who had led such horrible home lives, themselves victims of sexual and ritual abuse, and eventually descended into a life of sexual promiscuity, drugs, alcohol, self-harm, and physical violence.

Very short, goes more into the girls cutting themselves than the murder. Tons of details and large facts are not included. What a waste of a credit
