Mommy blogger Lacey Spears made headlines when she was charged with the murder of her five-year-old son, Garnett. Prosecutors alleged that she had poisoned him with high concentrations of salt through his stomach tube. How could a mother do such a thing to her own son? This is the shocking true story. To the outside world Lacey had seemed like a loving, concerned mother, regularly posting updates on social media about 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, Lacey deliberately made Garnett sick to elicit sympathy from medical professionals as well as her hundreds of followers on Facebook, Twitter, and her own blog. When a Westchester County jury found her guilty of killing Garnett in April 2015, she was sentenced to twenty years to life in prison. My Sweet Angel is the definitive account--featuring interviews with Lacey's family, the investigators who broke the case, even Lacey herself--of an extraordinary case that shocked the world.
