Summary

When beloved educator Hadas Winnick was murdered, her sleepy, affluent hometown of Calabasas was rocked to the core. More shocking than her killing, though, was the process of convicting her admittedly guilty murderer.

Calabasas is a quiet, well-to-do California town often referred to as “The Bubble”. But on September 25th, 2007, that bubble burst with the murder of one of its longtime residents - high school math teacher Hadas Winnick. The upscale community was rocked by her gruesome death, but as shocking as the tragedy seemed, the years of abuse she faced that preceded it were more so. Even more devastating still, was the effort and time it took to sentence her murderer to prison, and the power that our systems-in-place allowed him while on his way there. Follow Hadas' daughter, award-winning blogger Amy Chesler, on her often heart-wrenching - but eventually heartwarming - road to justice.

Moving, honest and inspiring

A true account of devastating betrayal, sibling mental illness and
abuse, out of the darkness comes the path to acceptance and healing. Amy Chesling tells her story with such openness and compassion, delivered superbly by Libby McKnight.

Amy is a woman wise beyond her years, but unimaginable tragic events in earlier life can do that to a person. And while she took the time to fall apart, she was able to reflect and it's clear that writing this book was instrumental in putting herself back together, all the stronger, and all the while, her beloved and murdered mother, Hadas Winnick, is behind her. And beside her. Beautiful.

I thank you for sharing your gift with us readers. I'm certain it will inspire many who find themselves in the depths of despair to allow the light in and follow their hearts and dreams, and never give up.

Amy

Really enjoyed this book. Feel so sorry for Amy. Losing her mum and brother in one go.
He should have rotted in jail for what he did

Powerful read

Decided to read the book after listening to Amy on the Something Was Wrong podcast. She writes beautifully, the love for her mum was clear.
