Allegedly - Tiffany D. Jackson What a terrific suspenseful and disturbing debut novel by Tiffany D Jackson.

Mary B. Addison killed a baby. Allegedly. She didn’t say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: a white baby had died while under the care of a churchgoing black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary and the jury made it official

First of all I loved the cover and Title of this novel.

I really enjoyed this well written thriller with it's complex and disturbing characters and realistic plot. Classified as YA novel which I was a bit wary about at first but this was entertaining and suspenseful and a real page turner. This is the sort of thriller that pulls you in from page one and you just want to rally to the end to find out what happened. I would never have picked up this book if I had not read really encouraging reviews from my trusted Goodread friends.

I listened to this one on audio and the narrator did a great job, but I still cant help wishing I had a hard copy of this book instead.
