<b>“Ilyon Woo presents the earliest child custody laws of this country with vivid relevance . . . both legal and feminist details are fascinating.” —</b><b><i>St. Louis Post-Dispatch</i></b><br />  <br /><i>The Great Divorce </i>is the dramatic, richly textured story of one of nineteenth-century America’s most infamous divorce cases, in which a young mother single-handedly challenged her country’s notions of women’s rights, family, and marriage itself.<br />  <br /> In 1814, Eunice Chapman came home to discover that her three children had been carried off by her estranged husband. He had taken them, she learned, to live among a celibate, religious people known as the Shakers. Defying all expectations, this famously petite and lovely woman mounted an epic campaign against her husband, the Shakers, and the law. In its confrontation of some of the nation’s most fundamental debates—religious freedom, feminine virtue, the sanctity of marriage—her case struck a nerve with an uncertain new republic. And its culmination—in a stunning legislative decision and a terrifying mob attack—sent shockwaves through the Shaker community and the nation beyond.<br />  <br /> With a novelist’s eye and a historian’s perspective, Woo delivers the first full account of Eunice Chapman’s remarkable struggle. A moving story about the power of a mother’s love, <i>The Great Divorce</i> is also a memorable portrait of a rousing challenge to the values of a young nation.<br />  <br /> “Modern Americans, bombarded with stories of celebrity divorces, probably assume that the tabloid breakup is a recent phenomenon. This lively, well-written and engrossing tale proves them wrong.” —<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>

No, Pete Townshend: The Kids Aren't Alright contains 22 true crime stories of murder. These murders were all committed by children from the ages of 6-17. Part One contains nine chapters of children from the ages of 6-11. It opens with two chapters on two kids who were both six years old. One boy in 1929 and one boy in 2000. The stories of Carl Mahan and Dedrick Owens occurred 71 years apart but the results were very similar. Nothing good happens when a six year old boy picks up a gun. Part Two holds eight chapters on kids from 12-14 years old. This section opens with 12 year old Jasmine Richardson who murdered her family in Canada in 2006. Part Three consists of five chapters on children ages 15-17 who have committed murder. This section opens with 15 year old school shooter, Kip Kinkel. The book ends with another school shooting. Brenda Spencer was 16 years old when she started firing at an elementary school across the street. Also, a Supreme Court case, Miller vs Alabama (2012), makes its presence felt in a few chapters.

No, Pete Townshend: The Kids Aren't Alright 3 takes a look at 17 cases of juveniles committing murder plus one bonus chapter. The final chapter has us answering a question by looking at three cases of very young juveniles conspiring to commit murder. The 17 chapters include: Aaron Campbell, Daniel Petric, Devin Moore, Roderick Farrell, Nicholas Browning, Kenneth Bartley, David Brom, Catherine & Curtis Jones, Will Cornick, Jesse Pomeroy, Clementine Barnabet, Sandy Charles, Shirley Wolf and Cindy Collier, Sheldry Topp, Robert Tulloch & James Parker, Kim Edwards & Lucas Markham, and Morgan Geyser & Anissa Weier. The bonus chapter is on John Miller. The book ends with a new feature that we are rolling out. It is called Ripped from the Headlines. With each new book in the series, we will be looking at a few cases that we ordinarily might pass on because a murder was not committed. These are short chapters where the cases (at least in this book) are still ongoing.

There are eight chapters in Part Two on ages 14-15. These include Heather Smith, Tyon Wells, Michael Carneal, Todd Cameron Smith, Luke Mitchell, Paula Cooper, Brenda Wiley and Nick Clatterbuck. Part Three delves into murders committed by 16 and 17 year olds. We have ten cases there including Dylan Schumaker, Scott Dyleski, Luke Woodham, Willie Francis, Mathew Hardman, Vaughan Pollen, Delara Darabi, Tyler Hadley and TJ Lane III. Chapter 22 is the story of three teenage killers acting together - Kristal Maestas, Ronald Bell and Renee Lincks. The book wraps with a bonus chapter from one of our oldies, Free To Kill Again. The chapter fits well because it is about another juvenile - Peter Woodcock in Canada in a vintage case.

No, Pete Townshend: The Kids Aren't Alright 4 adds 18 new true crime stories of kids who kill. 1.) Rachael Mullenix: September 15, 2008, was a typically beautiful day in Newport Beach, California. Sun with some scattered clouds and a high in the 80’s. A perfect day for a boat ride. So it was for a member of the Newport Beach Yacht Club until he noticed something in the water that shouldn’t be there.<br />2.) Kit Darrant: Teenagers arguing with parents about staying out late on a school night is nothing new and isn’t usually newsworthy. It becomes newsworthy when the argument leads to a vicious attack that ends in murder which it did in Miami, Florida in March 2012.<br />3.) Chris Dankovich: Chris was a 15 year old whose interests included porn and searching the internet for guns and other weapons-related websites. His Mom found out. This was not going to end well.<br />4.) Zachary Davis: Zachary was also 15 years old when he ended the life of his mother in 2012 in the family home in Hendersonville, Tennessee. His attorney was eloquent in his defence but would it be enough to save the teenager from a long prison sentence?<br />5.) Carl “Charlie” Brandt: It was a month before Charlie’s 14th birthday in 1971. He shot his mother to death and wounded his father. Charlie Brandt wasn’t finished there…not even close.<br />6.) Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme: The country of New Zealand was rocked when the two friends, ages 16 and 15, murdered Pauline’s mother in Christchurch in 1954.<br />7.) Kieren Smith: Kieren was 16 years old when he stabbed his mother to death in their home in Weymouth, Dorset in England in 2012. After all, was said and done, many still question the motive.<br />8.) Yukio Yamaji: Yukio was 16 when he killed his mom in their home in the Yamaguchi Prefecture on the Japanese island of Honshu. Yukio was on his way to becoming one of the youngest serial killers in Japan.<br />9.) Andrew Zaragoza: Andrew was also 16 when he beat his mother to death with a hammer and used a knife to make sure she was dead in their Bel Air, Maryland home in 2017.<br />10.) Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah Whitehead: The identical twins were 16 when they became fed up with their mother and her rules. The twins had a solution. Cold-blooded murder!<br />11.) Alexander Bedford: Alexander was 14 years old when he was about to be disciplined by his mother for bad grades. It had happened many times before. This time was going to be different.<br />12.) Nathan Ybanez and Erik Jensen: A history of abuse sends a 14 year old boy spiraling down a path that leads to murder.<br />13.) Linda Pedroza: Linda was 17 when she, with a little help from her boyfriend, murdered her mother in their Palm Beach Gardens, Florida home in 2000.<br />14.) Timur Kimaletdinov: Timur was 16 years old and the pride of the tiny village in western Russia where the family lived. So, what made him pick up an axe and do the unthinkable?<br />15.) Jake Evans: If you were found guilty of capital murder in Texas, the odds were that you would either get the death penalty or life inside with no parole. With the life without parole option for juveniles gone, what would Texas do with Jake Evans, 17.<br />16.) Tylar Witt: Tylar Witt changed her wardrobe, her style, and her personality. She also changed her residence. She now lives in the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla, California.<br /><br />Still Before The Courts<br /><br />17.) Amariyona Hall : Two sisters, one 14 and the other 12 years old, stabbed their mother to death during the early morning hours of January 5, 2019.<br />18.) Unnamed nine year old boy: Pauline Randol had been trying to get mental health help for her nine year old son. Then, one day it was too late.<br /><br />
