Book Review: Don't Tell A Soul by M. William Phelps

Cherry Walker was mentally challenged. She was also very helpful with her friends and neighbors. No one thought much of it when she began babysitting for her neighbor's son. Soon Cherry was called to testify against the boy's mother in court. Sadly, Cherry's murdered body was found alongside the road.
I really wanted to love this true crime story. I just couldn't get into the structure of the book. The information about Cherry's neighbor Kim was repetitive. She was a terrible, mother and person, but I couldn't even get angry because I felt I didn't know enough to make her human.
Cherry was a victim of circumstance and her story is one of tragedy. I feel the most sorry for Kim's children.

*Thank you to NetGalley, Pinnacle Books, and M. William Phelps for allowing me to read a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
