Scandalous! 50 Shocking Events You Should Know About by Hallie Fryd

This nonfiction book gives the details on fifty scandalous events throughout history.  Told in chronological order each event is covered in four pages.  Besides the details of what happened, the author includes information about how it impacted the world, what happened to the people involved, similar scandals, and why we still care about it today.  Even though I knew something about all of the scandals listed I still found a lot to learn here.  I had actually planned to only skim through the scandals but soon got caught up enough to read the entire book!
