In a show of literary genius, Lost Girls respectfully chronicles the heart wrenching outcome when two young innocents encounter the epitome of evil depravity in the form of a sexual predator. Rother not only exposes, but blows sky high, the flaws in our system that allow such tragedies to occur. This story skillfully pays homage to the memory of these pure and most unfortunate victims while simultaneously outlining the signs that went unaddressed and the actions that should have, and could have, been taken to prevent these unspeakable crimes. It is a cautionary tale depicting how monsters do not necessarily come in the despicable images conjured up by stereotypes, and why precautionary measures must be utilized to the full extent of the law to protect society from criminals not amenable to rehabilitation. Rest in peace Amber and Chelsea!

This is one of those books that upset you, I really don't like books that are about the abuse of children. John Gardner was one of those people that can make you do things you don't want to, his mother Cathy , I guess did try to help her son but she didn't see anything wrong. How is that possible? When at one point she was considering looking for Chelsea, but again never did, because she did not want to really find out the truth. How does one work his way through the system and yet never get charged enough to be put away for a long time. John even had sex with his cousin, did this seem right? I don't think so. So he turns around and takes two children Chelsea and Amber and rapes and kills them. Let's keep going there was also Candice and others , but at least they got away from him. Yes the legal system failed him, along with his family. Finally they arrested him and charged him with Chelsea and Amber murder, thank goodness he is now in prison and has to pay fines restitution for what he has done.

Oddly, the book has more to do with Gardner's background and family life than the girls themselves. This is understandable due to the fact that the DuBois and King families did not want to participate in the book or have it written in the first place. That said, I feel guilty even reading it. If you want to know more about Chelsea and Amber, go to their organizations: Chelsea's Light and Team Amber Rescue. While it is not realistic for the author to donate all her proceeds to the girls organizations, it would be nice for her to donate some of her proceeds to both organizations to honor Chelsea and Amber.

IF the schools, mental health system and criminal justice system had done their jobs properly ,in the Gardner case, and followed proper protocol, Chelsea and Amber would likely be alive living out their hopes and dreams. The system clearly failed those girls!

John Gardner came from a dysfunctional family where his mother was an enabler. She was much of the problem. What I find especially chilling is during the search for Chelsea when police say that their concern is for Chelsea and Ms Osborn says something to the effect: "I have a job, too. My concern is for my son." She was clearly protecting her son when she could have aided in the search for Chelsea.

Chelsea and Amber were lovely girls with much promise and a bright future ahead of them. I remember when San Diego County was in an uproar over their disappearances. Amber's missing flyer was all over San Diego North County for over a year. I was glad that Gardner was brought to justice for their murders. He will never see the light of day.

Anyway, the book is well-written and gives detailed background info on Gardner's family background and how he came to be the monster he is. It also has chalk full info on how the system not only failed to save Amber and Chelsea, but failed Gardner as well.

May the memories of Chelsea and Amber live on!

As always, Caitlin Rother delivers. This time from a different and unbiased perspective. My "draw" to the true crime genre has always been to try and analyze the perpetrators. What makes them do the things they do? Are some people just born without a conscience? Are these types of behaviors innate or are they learned? For this specific case, we have our answers. It is imperative that we study, in length, the characters of individuals such as John Gardner to prevent tragedies of this nature in the future. As with all of Rother's books, this one is extremely well-written and informative. Lost Girls is extremely difficult to put down and will help you gain some understanding and insight into John Gardner as the author delivers a well-organized time line of events. At no time during my reading of this book did I glean any indication that Ms. Rother was, in any manner, trying to exploit or harm these girls or their families. She delivers the facts as they pertain to the case and its investigations. I would imagine it is extremely difficult to write from this perspective without some bias and Caitlin Rother proves she has the ability to do just that while delving into the mind of a very sick monster. It is courageous and bold. One can only hope more authors will accept this type of challenge.

Lost Girls is the tragic story of two young girls who lost their lives at the hands of a vicious predator. Caitlin Rother takes the reader on a journey through interviews with the killer and his mother. Some people were not happy about the fact that Gardner and his mother were interviewed for this book and that is their right. It is also the right of Ms. Rother as a journalist to write her book. John Gardner had been troubled from a very young age. He comes from a highly dysfunctional family with mental illness running rampant, the combination made a deadly cocktail. I have no sympathy for Gardner or his mother and her blaming everyone else but her son, made me sick. It's too bad the families of the young girls did not participate. It would have been nice to know more about the young women the world has lost at the hands of a psycho named John Gardner. He's where he should be - rotting away in a prison.
