2018 ULTIMATE book challenge - (graphic novel)

Most of us have heard the name "Borden" at some point. But have you looked a little further into the reason that name rings a bell? Lizzy Borden, to be exact. She's the reason that name has been penned in history. As you can tell from the title of the book, the name does not bring joy & laughter to one's mind when the name is brought up. Lizzy Borden is thought to be the likely ax murderer of his father & step-mother. Author Rick Geary once again tells a gruesome, disturbing story in such a way that makes it possible for the reader to learn more about this terrible tragedy without being left in some dark, weird state of mind.

This is the 2nd of Geary's tragedy books that I've read. So far, both stories ended with the murderers disappearing without a trace or being found "not guilty" despite mounting evidence against them. I am beginning to think that these are the sad tales Geary sets out to tell - ones with endings that are against what they feel they should be. But since he writes of historic events, there is no changing the endings to suit the reader's fancy.

Age recommendation: 14 & up (murder, gory detail)

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 6.
