Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As someone who grew up listening to my mother telling of watching this tragedy unfold on the only neighborhood TV, this book caught my eye. I knew at 132 pages, it would be slim and I thought the price was steep for such a small book. But, I bought it anyway and was I surprised at how little information there was for such a huge, gripping story that still reverberates throughout southern California. Of the 132 pages only 75 are devoted to the rescue, 55 pages are photos and newspaper articles and 9 pages are devoted to the Jessica McClure rescue.

Poorly researched, it was often disjointed and the chapters seem out of order. And I use the term "chapter" loosely as some or only 2 or 3 paragraphs in length not even covering half a page. There are no interviews, information is repeated multiple times, some sentences don't even make sense and, in one instance, (pp. 60 and 61) the same paragraph is repeated. Where is a good editor when you need one?

It's a shame because this little girl deserved better than a book that reads as a high school term paper whose author is making desperate attempts to stretch it out. If you are really interested in the Kathy Fiscus story take a listen to lecture by historian Bill Deverell ([...] > Visit). He has also written an article about the tragedy. It's too bad Dr. Deverell didn't write this book.
