I have always been interested in Lizzie Borden and the Borden murders. I have read quite a few books on the subject but was curious to see how a book written for middle grade children would be written.
Usually, a book written about the subject will have an agenda to prove as to whether Lizzie "did it" or someone else was guilty. This book was a pleasant change. It is a factually based account of what happened and the trial that followed. It leaves the reader to make their own decision (if they have one that is). I found the book to be well written and very appropriate for the age group that the book is intended for. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
