Very sad book - my view of imprisoned women has changed. I used to have no compassion for people in prison, considering they must have done something bad enough to get there, but these women's stories show that most of their problems stem from horribly abusive childhoods and if they had a healthier upbringing, most wouldn't be in jail now. Some were raped before they were even old enough to spell the word rape. The book doesn't focus much on their crimes, but their lives before and after their crimes.
