This book is a short, quick look into the lives and experiences of men who are (or were) on Death Row and were given the sentence while still a teenager. There are a lot of sad things about this book, and maybe even a few things that will make some readers angry. The author has a definite cause she's trying to promote, but I think she did put effort into being fair about it. I liked that she included a section written by family members of a murder victim, but who also happen to support "the cause". I didn't think that this book was incredible, but it is further evidence for my feelings that the death penalty is ineffective and should be abolished.
