Without demeaning or diminishing any of what Bill Petit endured this book gets a touch sycophantic in moments D'Agostino is a tremendous writer and the writing is never dry or dull I plowed through this but I wish the focus had been wider Still I look forward to whatever D'Agostino writes next

Advanced Reading Copy review Due to be published September 15 2015I really wish this story had been written by a different author with a different style The central tragic crime and the surviving victim's struggles surely deserve better Imagine In Cold Blood as written by Kathie Lee Gifford The author Ryan D'Agostino relies on a narrative style that is part grade school documentary voice over Hayley was beautiful and Otis was handsome and they were both athletic and intelligent and confident but they were still teenagers and being a teenager isn't easy for anybody and an inner train of thought monologue What to do This is bad So what to do What's the strategy Yell Be uiet He decides to stay uiet When he uses actual uotes and describes events he witnessed the writing improves at least to a newspaper reporter level I did manage to learn a lot about the infamous crime and its aftermath Dr Petit's ability to rise above the horror of losing his home and family due to criminal violence is inspirational I just didn't need to be told repeatedly and inanely how much he suffered and how miraculous his recovery was
