In the final volume of her trilogy on interlinked social issues, Susan Madden Lankford explores the troubled psyches of young people incarcerated in Juvenile Hall. At the core of this compelling book are contributions elicited from the youths themselves. Their scrawled or careful handwriting-and brutal or poignant drawings-speak as powerfully as their words.
