Overview

The Trial by Jen Bryant

Imagine you are Bruno Richard Hauptmann, accused of murdering the son of the most famous man in America.

In a compelling, immediate voice, 12-year-old Katie Leigh Flynn takes us inside the courtroom of the most widely publicized criminal case of the 20th century: the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s baby son. And in doing so, she reveals the real-life figures of the trial—the accused, the lawyers, the grieving parents—and the many faces of justice.

This book is about the trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the supposed kidnappet and killer pf the Lindberghs' baby. The story is fro the viewpoint of Katie, a child observing the trial. Is Bruno innocent, or guty? This novel askes the question. Appearing as a collection of poems, thid novel in verse is a quick, albet very good, read. I recomend knowing some historical backround of the case. Overall, avery good read, but not of War And Piece length. It's short but sweet.
