My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book got three stars, for me, three stars is a decent rating, it means I liked it, I just don’t know if I can recommend it.
There is virtually no investigation, the murder was witnessed and the perp arrested that same day. There is also almost no trial covered.
(view spoiler)[The main focus of this book is the issue of homosexuality, or in this case lesbianism. The idea that a person could love a person of the same sex is viewed as a mental illness. And that is the whole focus of the case. Was Alice in her right mind? She loved Freda like a man loves a woman. Doesn’t that make her insane? (hide spoiler)]
The ending of this whole case is tragic. There are no easy answers.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
