What an eye opener!

This was a very interesting book. I throughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this book. It was eye opening to see it from their eyes and how the system is wrong sometimes.

Powerful

The author and civil rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson has some hard bark on him: for dozens of years now, traveling into the backwater towns of Alabama (and other places in the South) to defend and save the lives of inmates, many of whom were railroaded onto death row. He centers his soul-sparking memoir on the especially egregious case of Walter McMillian in Monroe County, AL, interspersed with brief sketches of examples nationwide proving particular types of injustices in our criminal 'justice' system, such as death sentences for juveniles, and the flagrant sentences of juveniles and those with severe mental disabilities to life without parole.

Stevenson captivates the reader with a narrative that fuels his anti-death penalty argument with the force of forked lightning.
