Reviews

I think they shouldn't have took my mama to jail... Give her the opportunity to make up for what she did. Using drugs, she's hurting herself. You take her away from me, now you're hurting me.
A much-needed voice for those kids serving time right alongside their parents."
This is the book we children of prisoners have been waiting for. -- Chesa Boudin
An urgent invitation to care for all children as our own. -- Adrian Nicole Leblanc
Serious, moving, and well organized . . . this book could help galvanize a national will to tackle such problems."
Well researched and smoothly written. Bernstein's book pumps up awareness of the problems Ýand¨ provides a checklist for what needs to be done."
"In terms of elegance, breadth and persuasiveness, All Alone in the World deserves to be placed alongside other classics of the genre such as Jonathan Kozol's Savage Inequalities, Alex Kotlowitz's There Are No Children Here and Adrian Nicole LeBlanc's Random Family. But to praise the book's considerable literary or sociological merit seems beside the point. This book belongs not only on shelves but also in the hands of judges and lawmakers."
