This was a quick easy read, as it was meant to be as one of the titles in the Quick Read series.
But despite being such a short book (128 pages) Walters still manages to create a complete world with details and nuances.
Chickenfeed is a true story; a murder in the 1920s, a body in a chickenrun, a man accused who declares his innocence to the very end.
 
Walters turns those raw basics into a quick but gripping read.
