The Meaning of Matthew: My Son's Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed by Judy Shepard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
there are things in the book not generally known to the public that are not just surprising but also heart-wrenching; for example, his great-uncle walking into the church for his memorial service had a heart attack and died! the family didn't know about it until after the service. the firs 2/3's of the book really makes Matthew more human than image and the struggles that he went through explain a lot of why his story is so thought-provoking. the last part of the book winds down almost too quickly and is the only negative i have about the book. Judy Shepard has to be commended for putting this story to paper and make the title come true - The Meaning of Matthew. EVERYONE should read this book...
