"An uneasy but compelling read..." Todmorden News

Catherine Smyth has written a personal account of the murder of Sophie Lancaster, a 20-year-old student kicked to death in Bacup, Lancashire, because she dressed differently - as a Goth. Catherine was the first reporter to cover the story and her book is written primarily from a media perspective but, as a mother, she also details her personal feelings and angst that such a crime could have happened so close to home.

Catherine's book 'Weirdo Mosher Freak' has been rebranded 'The Sophie Lancaster Story' and a portion of profits benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

So far one thousand and 360 pounds has been donated to the campaign as a result of books sold.
