    This title disgusts me I really wish Fanning would have picked a better title Caylee deserves better than to be called Mommy's Little GirlI tend to go for true crime that includes the end result of the trial but I won't pass by a book that looks interesting to me because of this Being that I followed Caylee being missing and her being found I wanted to read this to not only get Fanning's take but maybe get some of the smaller details I may have missed This doesn't disappoint in the detail area there are uite a few things here that I hadn't heard reported on the news Nothing huge but small things add up as everyone knows This was by so far the hardest true crime book I've ever read Maybe because I followed it as it happened maybe because it's so recent maybe because she reminds me of my young daughter I don't know but it really hit me hard I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night for hours I laid in bed alternating between sadness that a little girl I'd never met is gone and anger at the monster that was supposed to be her Mommy This little girl should have been cherished and instead she was born into a family of monsters and idiots The Grandfather at best is a gambler who can't keep a house for his family The Grandmother at best is a trashy control freak who is blind to everything around her The Mother as we all know well is a fucking monster This woman and I use that term loosely because she in no way is a real woman in my eyes lied for the pure hell of it For no reason She's one of those people that will lie while it's obvious to everyone else and then demand that she's not lying She actually had her family going about her having a job at Universal for YEARS That's not to mention that she wasn't even a high school graduate She took the police there and after being told by security that no one with her name worked there proceeded to walk through the halls with the police watching her until she finally stopped turned around and said that she didn't really work there Uh no shit She's not crazy She's evil There was no accident She wanted to party and she didn't want her Mom to continue watching Caylee She was jealous of Caylee and her Grandmothers relationship SHE wanted the same relationshio but she wanted it with no work What parents are okay with their child continuously leaving their Grandchild with a sitter for days and weeks on end? If I was without my daughter for minutes my parents would be looking into it Granted no one besides us watches Julia so it's a little different At the same time no normal people would be okay with all of the things these two people were okay with From what I've seen on the news and read the only normal people in this family besides poor little Caylee wereare the uncle I think his name was Rick and the Great GrandMom Shirley That's it Those are the only two people who actually saw this for what it was tried to help and when they weren't allowed they stepped back to watch THOSE are the people I feel sorry for The rest of the monsters can rot in hell I'd like to get ahold of Casey and do things to her that I can't type here I could shock the hell out of the people that know me if I told of the tortures I could think of and implement with my very own hands for that monsterI pray Caylee died without knowing what was happening I pray to God she didn't know her Mommy was hurting her Did Casey stop on the way out of the woods? Did she stop turn and look one last time as the bundle that held her baby? I'm all for standing by family but I think I can say that if something like this God forbid happened in my family none of us would stand by the person who commited the crime And that's the right thing to do My parents would NEVER even THINK about forgiving that This girl wanted to party and she wanted that baby out of the way And that's it And if anyone wants to argue with me that she's crazy and blah blah blah save it I'm not an expert but no one will ever convince me she's nuts She's sane She's just evil Pure fucking evil Part of me hopes she gets the death penalty and part of me thinks that far too easy I can't imagine the feelings that go through a persons mind on the way to their death but it can't be easy But I hope until the day she dies she hears Caylee's screams in her head I hope she hears her crying but can't remember anything good about her She doesn't deserve the smallest joyful memory She gave up the right to that when she killed her baby in my opinion I hope other imates get ahold of her and torture her until she begs for death I will never pay one single penny for any book those parents write I hope others feel the same way They should NOT be able to make money from this They already abused the accounts in Caylee's name in the past and will most assuredly do it again if they aren't already I sincerely hope that Casey's life is so horrible that she begs to be able to commit suicide and then I hope that she can't I hope she drives herself insane with all the memories and thoughts of what a monster piece of trash she is

    22410 just finished I must say Diane Fanning did a wonderful job in her writing of this book She was very thorough very factual and covered the case from every possible angle The majority of the book comes verbatim from transcripts of text messages emails police interviews media interviews jail visits between Casey and her family and other documented sources Fanning explores Casey's movements and possible state of mind from times shortly before Caylee went missing up until Casey was charged with her murder The points of view of Casey's friends boyfriends family and law enforcement are all shown within the book so that you get a really good overall picture of the events that occurred RIP little Caylee 22110 just started the book I wasn't sure what to expect from this book I worried it would be tediously repititious after all the media coverage but so far so good I go into it feeling like I already know almost everything there is to know about this case as I've followed it closely throughout the past year and a half I've watched and read almost everything that's been put out there Yet it is still interesting to read the book as the author recounts all of Casey's lies and manipulations It astounds me that someone can repeatedly tell such far out tales without so much as blinking an eye expecting everyone around her to believe these crazy things she makes up I don't get it and perhaps that's one of the reasons we're all so drawn to this case It's frustrating and disturbing to realize that there are people like this out there It just doesn't make much sense Casey was young pretty smart with the most precious little daughter; she seemingly had everything going for her She understandably had issues but who doesn't? Beyond the evil of what she did which is another subject entirely I just can't for the life of me understand how she thought she could get away with it I can't understand how she could have zero emotion about any of it no sadness no guilt no worry no anxiety no nothing And she expects everyone around her to just sweep it under the rug and move on Unbelievable

    “A carnival of bright lights loud voices and the public's ceaseless appetite for entertainment” is how author Diane Fanning encapsulates the ongoing Caylee Anthony murder caseAnd she has written a book about it published some eight months before the earliest possible trial date for accused murderer Casey Anthony the two year old child's mother Mommy's Little Girl is one of the numerous carnie barkers to take aim at the infamous case out of FloridaSummer of 2008 the United States was subjected to the tale of a young mother who – after waiting some thirty one days before reporting her two year old daughter missing to police authorities – announced that her loyal babysitter had stolen her child away from her For reasons never made clear Casey Anthony alleged to have “gone through other sources to try to find her” instead Without explicitly stating the reason behind having done so her family was led to believe that perhaps Caylee's life would be endangered should Casey have chosen to gone the traditional route of informing law enforcement of the missing childShortly afterward the influx of information began 911 tapes were released to the public as were the audio and transcripts of Casey's conversations with her family from jail presumed apparently to be private up until their release and sources began to speculate as to Caylee's whereabouts whether alive or not Casey's mother stepped up to the media embracing them at first in an attempt to locate her missing granddaughter and then reviling them with all of her passions when the media promptly turned on not only the accused Casey but the grandparents of the missing child as well Within months almost everyone else involved from celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla to Casey's own attorney Jose Baez became involved in various bizarre accusations and public spectacles News programs dedicated entire programs to the case national magazines giving over full cover stories to itAnd then the tragedy of young Caylee's apparent murder became clear upon the discovery of her skeletal remainsThe title Mommy's Little Girl appears to apply to both Caylee and to mom Casey herself as Fanning depicts Casey as a spoiled sociopathic child murderer protected by her own mother Of course Fanning brings nothing new or unknown to the story already blasted out by mass media but at least she brings it all together in a concise little package presented as a form of “entertainment” to sate the public's voracious appetite therefor Though numerous interviews with involved individuals were given the author makes it clear that nobody from Casey's immediate family – including Casey herself obviously – were involved in this gathering of informationPerhaps making the book somewhat unusual from others of its genre the publication was released long before any legal resolution was ever established Casey herself sits in jail awaiting final word on when her trial will take place while bookstores and grocery aisles across the nation display this case history from their shelves As if to make up for the lack of resolution Fanning herself puts her Edgar Award Finalist writing skills to work in formulating a trite Afterword shaming her readers for taking such an interest in the case even as she panders to those needs to understand the case in order to “prevent it from happening again to another child” Fanning delves into a uickie mental health review of Casey Anthony knocking down theories of suspected narcissistic personality disorder borderline personality disorder et al with hardly a sentence to dismiss each one Instead she prefers the decidedly non medical term “monster” to describe the accusedAn “accused” who has yet to face a jury of her peers but who has seemingly already been deemed guilty by Fanning and her ilk based on revelations – not actual hard based evidence which would establish the guilt of Caylee's mother beyond the shadow of a doubt as is reuired by the American legal system prior to establishing a person's guilt The media has already done her job for her so that she can establish so much as a uasi resolution of sorts In the publishing world timing means an awful lot legal system be damnedSadly like many other true crime books Fanning has to rely on speculation to recreate a potential time line of events And she does not hesitate to do so Prefaced by a blasé statement that the events to follow are “based on” numerous external sources and that time frames are “estimates” Fanning disregards the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as a mere triviality and fictionalized her version of “what might have happened” Emphasis by the authorDespite its flaws the book does not drag nor does it rely on irrelevent pieces of information regarding the topography of Orlando Florida for example or the ham fisted verbiage of a hack writer Diane Fanning proves herself uite adept at maintaining a reader's rapt attention and being the reader along captivated and intriguedHowever the book remains decicively one sided and biased as one might expect Coupled with slipshod copy editing and a basis on so called “evidence” which has not yet been made known to the public as such Mommy's Little Girl cannot present the definitive version of events surrounding the case – only the details which led to its current state Sources of information for private e mail correspondence has not been made known nor has the anecdotal biographical information regarding Casey and her parents Caveat lector

    When news broke of three year old Caylee Anthony’s disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2008 there was a huge outpouring of sympathy across the nation The search for Caylee made front page headlines But there was one huge uestion mark hanging over the case the girl’s mother • Why did Casey Anthony wait one full month before reporting her daughter missing? • Why were searches on chloroform and missing children found on her computer? • Why did she go out partying with friends less than one week after Caylee disappeared? As the investigation continued and suspicions mounted Casey became the prime suspect In October based on new evidence against Casey—her erratic behavior and lies her car that showed signs of human decomposition—a grand jury indicted the young single mother Then two months later police found Caylee’s remains a uarter of a mile away from the Anthony home Casey pled not guilty to charges of murder in the first degree and she continues to protest her innocence Did she or didn’t she kill Caylee? This is the story of one of the most shocking confusing and horrific crimes in modern American historyRate this 55 I thought that the author presented the case as it should be presented without forming judgement or blame The facts themselves point to the horrific story of this sweet child's short life There were several times when I would weep and have to lay the book down unable to continueit is so tragic I only hope that when all is said and done that there will be justice for the unforgotten one in all of the media blitz Caylee Marie Anthony who deserved a better life

    I picked this book bc I enjoy true crime and a good friend had recommended it It is an captivating and uick read I could of read this all in one day Its also my opinion that Diane Fanning is an excellent true crime writer I have read several of her books I think she did a wonderful job writing this I found Fanning to be very reliable and she seemed to cover as many angles as possible This books does include transcripts of text messages emails policemedia interviews jail visits btwn Casey and her family etc Fanning also explores some of Casey's behaviors when she was much younger as well as Casey's movements and possible state of mind from times shortly before Caylee went missing up until Casey was charged with her murder was also explored The points of view of Casey's friends boyfriends family and law enforcement are all shown within the book so you will get a really good overall picture of the events that occurred Although written before the trial ever started this is a good read and I would recommend it to anyone who is following the case The Story of little Caylee touched many lives RIP sweet baby girl

    For me the Casey Anthony case started out as an interest after watching Nancy Grace 3 years ago then I became tired of it after intense media coverage As the trial began I had little to no interest in watching it save the closing arguments and verdict and that's when it became an obsession I'm still watching coverage of it waiting for the next big plot twist It's like a greek drama unfolding in real life on television As I'm the type of person who likes to be well rounded when it comes to big news stories like this I had to read the book in addition to watching the coverage This book is about 2 years old so obviously the new stuff isn't included but it gave a nice background on the case as well as new details I didn't know about Written as mainly transcripts of the jail conversationspolice statements Mommy's Little Girl is a tale of lies tragedy lies murder lies a broken family an outraged country as yes lies At the center of it all is the poor 2 year old girl who was brutally killed by the woman who should have wanted to give her life to save her child's A very tragic story

    uit once they let the baby killer run free No offense to the author who did a wonderful job with the book I just can't continue reading seeing all the evidence of her guilt without getting angry all over again

    I am forever amazed that Casey Anthony isn't rotting away in jail at this very moment She committed the worst crime that any mother can commit and she got away with it I've watched countless of documentaries about this case so I knew how it would end This book finishes before Casey goes on trail so it doesn't give any information about that Still I wanted to read a bit about the evil person that Casey is Who on earth is so caulise that they murder their own child? This bitch couldDiane Fanning just managed to capture the story in a good way which provides plenty of information
