Day 06 - A book that makes you sad



All She Wanted by Aphrodite Jones

For those that do not know, this is the book that brought to attention the case of Brandon Teena in the film, "Boys Don't Cry". It's about a woman who lives as a man and is later brutally raped and killed. The even sicker thing about all of it is that the people who could have kept her safe after she was raped did nothing. The police treated her more like a criminal than a victim due to her lifestyle choices, which I find horrifying. I feel that if they would have taken the proper action, she may still be alive today.

Some may ask why I chose to read something like this, as it is going to be a sad one, but I am really into reading about subjects like crime. I have this insane need to understand human behavior and why people feel the need to go so far as to kill others because they are not exactly like each other. It is something I will never get an answer for, but I keep looking nonetheless.
