This book is a powerful tool in countless ways. It gives a voice to those who have been silenced. It offers important insights into crime, punishment, and circumstance. It provides an opportunity for empathy and understanding - for the offenders and the victims.
- Congresswoman Barbara Lee, CA
Most valuable in this book are the searingly honest reflections by prisoners on the damage they inflicted on their victims and the victims' families, the sense of shame and regret, the determination to live a better life, and the hope of redemption. Louie Gomez' powerful essay, "In My Victim's Shoes," is stunning.
- Jeanne Bishop, Assistant Cook County Public Defender/Author, Change of Heart: Justice, Mercy and Making Peace with My Sister's Killer
This book not only serves as a source of enlightenment on our justice policies, it also offers important insights into how to rectify many of the problems inherent in the system. Juvenile Offenders is well-worth the read!
