I was only a child when Damien, Jessie, and Jason were being tried for the murders of Stevie, Michael, and Christopher so I wasn't aware of it as it happened. I only became aware of it a few years ago. It is absolutely horrible what Damien, Jessie, and Jason were put through.It is clear from this book that Damien Echols was born to write. This book which describes the horrors he went through was written masterfully and beautifully. No one can fully know what he went through but Damien does give you quite a look into his life. This is definitely a book that I would recommend to others. If you want to know more about Damien and his story then this is a great book for you to read.
