I found the story interesting and it held your interest as the story developed from the initial horrific incident just over three years ago. Obviously, because of the author's background, it is written in a very straightforward journalistic style.
It is still shocking to think that in the 21st Century someone can be beaten to death just because they look different.
Well-written and a compelling read. --Scarborough Evening News November 25 2010
For those who think crimes like this cannot happen in small towns like Bacup, or Todmorden, or many others like them, it is an uneasy read but a compelling one from which it is to be hoped more understanding and respect for others must come.
--Todmorden News January 6 2011
About the Author
I have been a journalist since 1988 and in my time as a reporter never has a 'story' affected me so personally. This is one crime that cannot and should not be forgotten. Lessons must be learnt.

It's disgraceful that anyone should be attacked for looking different to the "norm". Sophie's death touched me when it happened and there isn't a week that goes by when I don't think of her, Sylvia and Rob.
The book gives an insight into the murder of this lovely girl, the trauma that Rob and Sylvia went through and how Bacup supported S.O.P.H.I.E.
May Sophie rest in peace.
But I was disturbed by the authors several references to what she had done for the cause, for example quite a few mentions and detail on her role in starting up the black ribbons worn to remember Sophie. But even more so was her clear dislike/falling out with Kate Conby who went onto, and still, work closely with Sophie's mum at the foundation in Sophie's name . It felt like she was, only briefly but still inappropriately, using the book to settle scores. These were a small part of what is an otherwise thorough and useful telling of such a sad awful incident. But I think she lets herself down with this
