About the Book

This young adult novel tells the story of high school student Joshua, whose father is in prison. Josh’s mother is in nursing school, his sister Reeb has her own problems. And the shooting of his best friend makes him long for revenge. But Joshua’s father begins writing him letters about the harsh realities of prison life and he soon understands that he has to make the right decisions, or he will end up in the same place. This book includes letters from real prisoners who struggled to make it clear to their children that good choices can make a difference in their lives. And bad choices can cause them to end up in jail themselves. These handwritten letters, given to counselor L.J. Hamon are an invaluable resource which can be used to help council the roughly five million kids whose fathers are currently in prison.
