Reviews

"A must-read for those concerned with social justice... changes minds on preconceived opinions about the incarcerated" -- Pamela Belafonte, Photographer
"Beautifully and poignantly captures [these men] as more than the crime or the time they did, and illuminates the complexity of what brought [these men] to prison, and the many ways in which they are assets to our community" -- Dr Geraldine Downey, Director, Center for Justice, Columbia University
"With gritty storytelling and dynamic images, this book charts the harrowing journey young men take after making the worst mistake of their lives. Society would rather write them off, but this book shows how they're writing themselves back into the stories of their communities." -- Sean Pica, Executive Director, Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison
