Publisher Comments:

When Deetand#8217;s father is arrested for drug use, Deet cannot believe it. His easygoing, loving father isnand#8217;t an addict! But Dad was working two jobs to make more money and taking pills to stay awake during the night shift. And now heand#8217;s in jail. Hurt, scared, and angry, Deet doesnand#8217;t want to see his father in prison. But when Mom goes back to work and no longer has the time, Deet decides to start visiting his dad after school. Itand#8217;s scary at first, but as he adjusts to the routine and learns more about the prisoners and their lives, Deet begins to realize that prison isnand#8217;t necessarily the horrible, violent place of movies and nightmares. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Told from Deetand#8217;s perspective, andlt;Iandgt;Do Not Pass Goandlt;/Iandgt; sheds light on the tumultuous experience of having a parent in jail and gives insight into the everyday lives of prison inmates and the stories behind what brought them there.


In Do Not Pass Go, Deet's world turns upside down when his father is sent to prison.

Her fourth book with McElderry Books, andlt;Iandgt;Dancing at the Odinochkaandlt;/iandgt;, was a Junior Library Guild Selection. Hill's visits to a family member in jail inspired her to write andlt;Iandgt;Do Not Pass Goandlt;/iandgt;.
