Gail suggests: Becoming Bonnie by Jenni Walsh is historical fiction that recounts how Bonnelyn Parker went from being a down-to-earth, church-going high school girl to being part of one of the most famous crime duos in history. The book grabbed my attention from the first chapter and I found myself wanting her to make different decisions as the book went along to keep her from getting involved in the wrong crowd!
