About this title


Offers an account of the sexual abuse of fifty-one preschoolers at the Wee Care Day Nursery in Maplewood, New Jersey, and the trial and conviction of Margaret Kelly Michaels

From Library Journal:

In 1985, the passing remarks of a small boy in a New Jersey suburb, who told of how his teacher took his temperature, led to a massive child abuse investigation which eventually involved 51 students at a day care center. The children told of bizarre sexual acts they were forced to perform on each other and on their teacher, Margaret Kelly Michaels, who was later convicted of 115 criminal charges. Manshel has adeptly covered the many facets of the case, from the pain suffered by the children and parents, to the problems investigators and prosecutors had in trying to piece together the story, to the drama of the trial, where the children testified via closed-circuit television. Some skeptics may question the possibly leading nature of some of the investigation; but all will be convinced that horrible things did indeed happen at the hands of Kelly Michaels. A troubling but well-written account that will remain with the reader long after the verdict is read. Highly recommended.
