30 Day Book Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 – A book that makes you sad

Adnan’s Story by Rabia Chaudry.

This book is sad because a few corrupt police officers in Baltimore decided that they needed to solve a murder quickly instead of correctly and spent all their time focusing on the wrong guy, who was convicted and ended up spending the next 17 years  (and counting) in jail.

This book makes me sad and very angry.  Luckily, Adnan has been granted a new trial and hopefully he will be home soon, but the book was just a sad reality of the criminal justice system.
