This book is about a woman's fight against the death penalty. It supplies you with a lot of interesting information about the process, and helps connect multiple perspectives.

I've always been moderately against the death penalty, but I never expected what would happen while reading this book. My friend was shot and murdered by a gang member in Chicago. Honestly, at that time I wanted to kill the person who did that to him myself.

It let me think about the content on a whole new level, and possibly it helped me forgive a little too. Overall, an insightful read on a topic I think everyone should at least be informed about.
