“The Borden Murders”, written by Sarah Miller, talks about the case of a murder event in the morning of August 4th, 1892. In Fall River, Mass, someone violently murdered Lizzie Borden’s father, Andrew Borden, and her stepmother, Abby Borden. Thirty-two-year-old Lizzie was accused and then acquitted of the crime after a 13-day trial. One theme of this book is to always use evidence to find the truth.
Two reasons why I think we should read this book are 1)It gives us all opportunities to read this book and it would help us try a different genre and think in different ways. 2)This book includes mystery, informational text, and determination.
Something I learned in this unit is that it’s really important to re-read and re-read again. I learned that there is so much more information waiting to be discovered in many parts of this book. This was a great learning experience for me to re-read sections of the book for more information.
