Available for pre-order
About the Book
Almost 330,000 children in America are in prison, in a detention center, on probation, or otherwise incarcerated. In a time of nascent prison reform, these children are often left out of the conversation. This book chronicles the experiences of six young people in Ash Meadow, a prison for juveniles in Washington State. Written from the perspective of a prison’s rehabilitation counselor, this book provides a firsthand account of these children’s lives during and after their stay. These accounts show how domestic violence, inequality, and poor adult-modeling influence the decisions that children make later in life.
