    No pictures of Debra!

    I bought this book online & discovered that there were no pictures of Debra included in this book after I bought it. The only picture is the one on the cover. I'am just letting others reader's know this just in case you wanted to see pictures of her. She is very pretty as everyone knows. The book was written by Debra's ex husband Owen. She had a history of abusive relationships with men, a lesbian relationship & a shaky past that included depression, before Owen even starts dating her. She was a troubled young women from the start & because of her obvious beauty he overlooks her flaws. Of course, Owen now feels betrayed & humiliated because of the crime she commited against one of her male students. Thus the reason for him writing a 'tell all' type book. I feel some of the more intimate details about Debra are very personal & are not necessary for the book. I would suggest you see Debra's recent interview with Matt Lauer, she answers his questions openly & honestly. She cannot write her own book or sell her rights to this story or profit from this crime in any way. It's a pretty good read & it should hold your attention throughout.
