Publisher's Summary

Lacey Spears made international headlines in January 2015, when she was charged with the "depraved mind" murder of her five-year-old son, Garnett. Prosecutors alleged that the 27-year-old mother had poisoned him with high concentrations of salt through his stomach tube.

To the outside world, Lacey had seemed like the perfect mother, regularly posting dramatic updates on her son's harrowing medical problems. But in reality, Lacey was a textbook case of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. From the time he was an infant, she deliberately made Garnett sick to elicit sympathy from medical professionals, as well as her hundreds of followers on Facebook and other social media. When a Westchester County jury found her guilty of killing Garnett in April 2015, she was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

Using Lacey's own never-before-seen Facebook, Twitter, and blog posts, an exclusive prison interview with Lacey herself, as well as interviews with her family and the three police investigators who broke the case, My Sweet Angel gives the definitive account of this extraordinary case that shocked the world.

    "The true story of a monster "mother""

    This is the tragic true story of one little boy who was tortured by his mother for his entire 5 years of life...until one day she either intentionally or accidentally took her awful game too far and killed him.I had seen this story on 20/20 and on that show they had the video tape of this poor little boy's last interactions with his mother. The fact that she sits there and stares at him patiently waiting for the poison to take effect is chilling. Lacey Spears is a callous, sadistic psychopath with no feelings for her own flesh and blood. After she killed her son, she set up a Go Fund Me account within hours to try to extract money and sympathy from the public. Everything about this woman is horrendous... this book will make you sad and angry. It seemed that even doctors were fooled by her , at least initially. She also had all her friends fooled , even though many of them had concerns about her behavior. I hope that this book makes the reader more aware of Munchausen by Proxy; because there are most certainly other woman out there right now that are doing similar things to their own children . The telling of this story could cause someone to recognize someone in their own life that is exhibiting the same types of behavior...and maybe save a child's life.
    This is a well written account of the awful story of Lacey and Garnett Spears. The narrator has a very pleasing (British) voice. I recommend it to people who are interested in this genre of book.
