Sandy Hook Elementary School

Newtown, Connecticut

We remember the numbers: 20 children and 6 adults, murdered in a place of nurture and trust. We remember the names: teachers like Victoria Soto, who lost her life protecting her students. A shooter named Adam Lanza. And we remember the questions: outraged conjecture instantly monopolized the worldwide response to the tragedy, while the truth went missing.

Here is the definitive journalistic account of Newtown, an essential examination of the facts-not only of that horrific day but the perfect storm of mental instability and obsession that preceded it and, in the aftermath of unspeakable heartbreak, the controversy that continues to play out on the national stage. Drawn from previously undisclosed emails, police reports, and in-depth interviews, Newtown: An American Tragedy breaks through a miasma of misinformation with its comprehensive and astonishing portrayal.
This is the vital story that must be told today if we are to prevent another American tragedy in the days to come.

A portion of the proceeds from this audiobook will be donated to the Avielle Foundation.

Good book but very difficult to get through emotionally.

I just can’t seem to make it through this book. The writing is impeccable, the narrator is fluid and concise. However, the incident itself is just too horrific to relive from such a personal perspective. As a mother/grandmother, I just can’t listen to the last days and moments of these victims without sobbing. My heart goes out to all that were touched by this tragedy and my respect goes to the author who had the strength to investigate and report this tragic event. Just watching the reports on TV all those years ago was hard enough, for me. I should have known I wasn’t capable of delving into an intimate view of these people and the tragedy that struck them.
