Stephanie Scott had never been happier. She was about to marry the man of her dreams and celebrate with all her family and friends. She had worked for hours to add personal touches to the special day. When her fiancé asked her to head out of town for a party she told him she had a few more things to tick off her to-do list. One was to head into Leeton High School, where she was a teacher, to finalise plans for her replacement while she was on her honeymoon. No one thought twice when Stephanie told them of her plans. No one could predict what would happen that fateful day. No one ever thought that evil could break the heart of a town and a nation. But a psychopath had been hiding in plain sight all along, waiting to make his move.
It was ok, reading about the passing of a beautiful person can never be good though.
A nice tribute to Stephanie, it’s nice to feel like I know her for more than how she died now. The book was repetitive, I was expecting investigative journalism
but this was more like a repeat of what has been written in news paper articles.
United In Grief
A book based on facts but not enough author input. Just paragraph after paragraph of quoting other people's thoughts and feelings.
Hard work reading this ‘novel’.
Maybe it’s blunt, but the writers style is jarring, unrefined, and reminiscent of an early secondary school creative writing piece. An almost never ending series of quotes with little analysis, exploration or expansion from the author renders this an underwhelming and disappointing effort. Almost unimaginable that the trial, the details or the crime, or the investigation are largely absent. Honestly feel like I wasted my money and time.
