Editorial Reviews

In Becoming Bonnie Jenni Walsh delivers an intriguing insight into the life of one half of the infamous duo, Bonnie and Clyde. I look forward to reading more from this new author. New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor
A compelling account of a nation and a life in disarray—readers will feel for Bonnelyn as she finds herself scrabbling for survival in a world turned upside down. How do you go from good girl to gangster's moll? Jenni L. Walsh takes you along for the ride in an account so vivid you would think you were there with her. New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig
Jenni L. Walsh’s debut historical novel will make you wait for Clyde Champion Barrow, but you’ll have fun along the ride, complete with an era that people just can’t stop raving about: the Roaring Twenties. Bookreporter
Walsh’s debut historical novel brings the Prohibition era, the Great Depression, and American gangsters to life through the personality and circumstances of a notorious moll who starts out as a good girl. Although the story focuses on Bonnie, supporting characters provide further perspectives on the magnetic pull of jazz, illegal booze, and a (short) life on the lam . . . Look forward to the sequel for later exploits of these notorious bandits. Booklist
