Neighborhood Watch, Cammie McGovern
This week I decided to reread a couple older books along with my pop culture book pick of the moment, Neighborhood Watch
by Cammie McGovern
And from there the author, Cammie McGovern
spins the tale of the unfortunate Betsy Treading, who, after spending twelve years in prison for a crime she
didn't commit, is released when new evidence comes to light.
must go back to her
old neighborhood to try to put the pieces from her
lost memory together and begin to solve the murder of her
neighbor, meet the people who turned their backs on her
and allowed her
to confess to a crime she
Betsy walks in her
fingerprints are all over the crime scene; there is blood on her
nightgown, and Betsy starts to believe she
must've committed murder while wandering one night.
I love books that portray what lies beneath the perfect surface of a community, show that the nice neighbors may be hiding secrets that would startle everyone if revealed.

Implausible as this situation sounds, the author made me believe it really happened, and you will follow along to see how she
did just that and wonder at the intricate relationships of the people who attend the neighborhood watch meetings.

When author Cammie McGovern's oldest son was diagnosed with autism, she looked for an outlet where he could be with other children with similar difficulties.
That led her to form the group "Whole Children," an after-school and weekend program for children with disabilities.
Now, a decade later, those kids spurred her
to write the new young adult novel "Say What You Will" (excerpt below).
"Having been surrounded by all these terrific teens with disabilities and seeing how much they wanted relationships and love as much as their typically developing peers, it felt like time to write a story about that," McGovern told Here & Now's Robin Young.
