Editorial Reviews

Review

"From the outset, this book is direct and down to earth. It reports the violent assault, in their local park in the early hours of Saturday 11 August 2007, on Sophie Lancaster and Rob Maltby from the Lancashire town of Bacup, the subsequent court case and development of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Sophie never recovered from her injuries and her life support machine was turned off on Friday 24 August 2007. Aged just 20, Sophie suffered her fatal injuries while cradling her boyfriend Rob's head in an attempt to protect him from the cowardly assault which started on him. Although Rob was released from hospital the same day, his injuries have profoundly affected his life since."
-- Manchester Salon
  
"Sophie Lancaster was murdered because she dressed differently to her teenage attackers. In a brutal assault in a Bacup Park in Lancashire in 2007 her boyfriend, Rob Maltby, was also kicked and punched senseless. This is an exclusive insight into the crime by the first journalist on the scene Catherine Smyth. A mother too, her book provides a documentary of what happened from a media and a parent perspective. It details the attack, facts about the town where it happened, the court case and mass media interest and the launch of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. It also uncovers some anomalies. The police admitted initially attending the wrong park; the ambulance service has yet to explain why it took 14 minutes for first paramedics to reach the scene just a mile away."
-- Book Gorilla
