The true story of the Boonie Hat Bandit
Caroline sent me this book to review and I am afraid to say it got a bit lost in my to-be read list but all is well as I have now finished it. I was not expecting a true story so that got my interest straight away as there is nothing like the truth about things.
I think it would appeal to Americans or people interested in the judicial hearings as there is a lot of information packed into this story. It makes you realise what it is like there and how hard it is for people in jail. The red tape surrounds just about everything making things so hard.
Sometimes people do things for all the wrong reasons but cannot see that at the time and that is what this story is about. Bank robberies that were committed by one sole man so he could pay his debts and keep the roof over his kids heads. He pays dearly for this and in fact is still paying as he is still incarcerated. The thing that keeps him going is the teacher he met and fell in love with and this proved to be a love that would stand the test of time and go on forever as Caroline Giammanco writes this story and tells you all.
