    1. Karen Foster I.J. Schecter Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Justice for Bonnie: An Alaskan Teenager's Murder and Her Mother's Tireless Crusade for the Truth book, this is one of the most wanted Karen Foster I.J. Schecter author readers around the world.

    2. It's my story and IJ Schecter did an incredible job at weaving it into an amazing book that chronicles the 17 years of hell I went through after my 18 year old daughter was abducted, raped and murdered. I cried reading it, even the 5th time! And I knew it like the back of my hand. Thanks to IJ this is an incredible read.

    3. I don't write a lot of reviews and yet am compelled to this time around. Justice for Bonnie is an emotional and important read. It's emotional because the reader is taken on a 17 year journey through the ups-and-downs Karen experiences. It's written in the first person and relays Karen's inner-most thoughts and experiences and the experiences of her family. I'm a father of two young kids and I really wasn't sure I would get past the second chapter. Suddenly what Karen's family has gone through i [...]

    4. Karen’s book is a great read, a fast read. Started and finished it in one day. I was Bonnie’s English teacher at the university, and it brought back a flood of memories—good and bad: Bonnie's can-do attitude, her fierce love of life, her determination. And then all that other stuff. I'm amazed at Karen’s resilience and fight. I don't know how she lives this every day of her life, but she manages to take the horror of life and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful to help others [...]

    5. As a schoolmate of Bonnie's, I remember very well the terrible announcement during class, the memorial services, her face on billboards and posters, and the nagging pressure that this was not coming to a close. I went to college, and my family moved away (from the same neighborhood as hers) but I kept checking the Anchorage paper online for any news. It was a shock to see the article about the DNA match, and so frustrating from afar to see the delay and delay and delay in the trial.What i saw an [...]

    6. This book is very close to my heart. I went to UAA when Bonnie went missing, and remember well the news, stories, and speculation surrounding her disappearance. My Mother, Sandy Cassidy, is mentioned in the book, and was instrumental in keeping Bonnie's story in the headlines. Like all true crime (not my favorite genera), this book goes through the evidence, and tries to keep to a linear timeline. I thought the book was well written, covered the facts, and had good closure.

    7. This was an emotionally tough read because I know the people involved, but it's a compelling true-crime drama that offers moving insights into the way one act of violence can ripple through an entire family and community, changing lives and world-views forever. Reading that the mother became an advocate for victims and that the family remained strong and close-knit helps to offer an uplifting angle to a sometimes heart-wrenching dramatic arc.

    8. This book was an emotional story. Very well written and easy to read. Once you start it's hard to put down. You really get a good sense of the journey Karen endured for all those years. What an inspiration she is!!

    9. A very well-written & heartbreaking book.Just wanted to add that I had trouble putting this book down, it was such a compelling read!

    10. Interesting read but the Mother was so self absorbed it grew tiring at times. Sad story of a nice teenaged girl gone too soon.

    11. A well written book and an easy read. Very interesting to read about the whole process, start to finish, of every parent's nightmare. How agonizing it would have been for the wheels to turn so slowly.

    12. I loved everything about this book, I loved how honest Karen was. I literally felt what she was saying she made it so easy to understand her and really connect you with what she saying. incredibly emotional story.

    13. I found it really interesting and I found how strong mother was on the fact she knew her daughter was murder but it took long time but justice avail
