No Choirboy: Murder, Violence, and Teenagers on Death Row Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No Choirboy takes readers inside Americas prisons and allows inmates sentenced to death as teenagers to speak for themselves. In their own voices—raw and uncensored—they talk about their lives in prison and share their thoughts and feelings about how they ended up there. Susan Kuklin also gets inside the system, exploring capital punishment itself and the intricacies and inequities of criminal justice in the United States.

 

This is a searing, unforgettable read, and one that could change the way we think about crime and punishment.

 

No Choirboy: Murder, Violence, and Teenagers on Death Row is a 2009 Bank Street Best Childrens Book of the Year.
