The story of the witch hunt Tonya Craft endured is heartbreaking and shocking. The narrator brings a liveliness to the story's many characters that pulls you deeper in, especially in the courtroom scenes. I have to say, though, that while I sympathized with Tonya's ordeal throughout I didn't like her a lot by the end. Throughout the book, she peppers in phrases like (I'm paraphrasing here) "It was important that the jury know I'm not a perfect person," yet outside of two small failings she takes credit for, she presents herself mostly as the only morally upright person in the room, a person whose every action is altruistic. I really find that hard to buy. Telling people you're not perfect yet behaving as if you think you are would lend credence to ONE of the prosecution's allegations: that Tonya is a bit narcissistic. Still, narcissist does not remotely equal child molester, and this woman is so completely and clearly innocent it's ridiculous that grown adults could have ever put her and the children in their care through all this.

Here is a woman who is a great teacher, a great friend and great person... small town bias against her. These sick individuals, who were upset were her (an adult) used their children and her own daughter, against her. An eye opening story, one that I hope NO ONE else ever has to go through. Whether friend or enemy, no one deserves the kind of treatment given to Tonya. Having never met her, after hearing this story, I would trust her with my own ten year old daughter, and that says a lot to me. #JusticeForTonya
