About the Author:

Owens grew up in the Midwest. She studied English and Journalism at the University of Iowa, and currently works as an editor and freelance writer in Seattle.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6-8. There's enough drama in the seven famous trials described in this entry in the Cover-to-Cover series to ensure that young readers won't want to put this book down. Without sensationalizing, Owens paints a vivid, sometimes horrific picture of the criminal mind at its worst. Beginning with Leopold and Loeb's kidnap and murder of Bobby Franks, the book shares stark details, with bulleted facts that make easy, yet gripping reading. Encapsulated case-file facts, excerpted courtroom testimonies, and plenty of photos and sketches add to the appeal of the book, which in both format and reading level (if, arguably, not content) will speak to middle-school readers as well as to older reluctant readers. Other trials include the Lindbergh baby's kidnapping, the gruesome Tate-LaBianca murders, and Brown v. Board of Education. Boldface vocabulary terms appear throughout the text and are cross-referenced in the glossary. Roger Leslie
