Murder in a small town attracts the attention of the nation. Now television cameras and legal pundits descend upon central Connecticut to watch a local middle school girl, Alexis Marlow, stand trial for the vicious crime. But there is more to the Marlow case than what is shown on TV. Alexis holds a secret so heinous it would shatter her world and everyone around it if it got out. The trial of the year has a story that isn't told from a newspaper.
