Little Girls… Lost Forever

An 11-year-old girl never makes it home from a Halloween party. When the people of the town discover what was done to her, they cancel Halloween until the real monsters who roam their streets can be caught.

A 14-year-old girl is excited to attend her first evening party with local teens. What happens there is every parent’s nightmare, but it is made infinitely worse when the residents of the town close ranks around the perpetrators.

A schoolgirl comes to the aid of a middle-aged woman who has lost her puppy and becomes the victim of the most hated couple in Australian history.

Police tell gang members a 16-year-old girl has agreed to testify against them, with predictable results. When they make an arrest for her murder, a Hollywood sitcom plays a surprising role in the outcome

Four shocking tales of young lives cut brutally short.

Another dark true crime book by Eileen Ormsby covering four horrible cases this time around where teenage girls have been the victim. I’m not gonna lie, these cases made me incredibly mad. The deaths of these girls were all horrific and definitely shouldn’t have happened. The injustice of it all really pissed me off.

I was already familiar with two of the four cases but knowing those didn’t make reading about them any less interesting because the author provided so much extra details so I really didn’t mind that. I also liked learning about the other two that I wasn’t familiar with because they were all written in such a good way.

The cases were about: Shauna Howe (11), Sian Kingi (12), Leigh Leigh (14) and Martha Puable (16). The fact that these girls were so young when their lives were ripped away from them made the book extra sad to read but also important because hopefully people will be able to learn from this.

Also, the case of Leigh Leigh made me extra mad because of how the town she lived in treated her family after everything that happened. I just can’t believe how cruel people can be and blame everything on the victim.

Little Girls Lost: True tales of heinous crimes by Eileen Ormsby was another dark read but one that I would highly recommend. These girls deserve to have their stories heard.
