[easyazon-link asin=”B0083ZQSEG” locale=”us”]FREE Kindle ebook[/easyazon-link]

I read this book while researching a novel I was trying to write. Devastating. My daughters were required to read this in school. I think adults should be required to read it as well. Perhaps as a requirement for retaining one’s American citizenship.
