Description: Through brilliant storytelling, Ayers captures the lives and personalities of young people caught in the juvenile justice system and urges us to change the way we think about kids and crime. "Ayers's book does for incarcerated kids . . . what Studs Terkel has done for the city's working folks, [and] what Alex Kotlowitz has done for the residents of its housing projects." -Anthony Platt, Los Angeles Times Book Review "Based on his observations as a teacher in Chicago's Juvenile Court system, the nation's largest institution of juvenile justice. . . . The book offers a view of delinquent youths you won't see much of on the evening news." -Clarence Page, Chicago Tribune "Performs an extraordinary service . . . Ayers's unique contribution to the debate comes through the intimate dialogue of classroom encounters." -Leslie Baldacci, Chicago Sun-Times "Bill Ayers is a gifted writer and an acute observer of the inferno which we call the Juvenile Court. . . . A moving and intensely sympathetic account of the lives of both the adults and children caught in the sometimes hopeless maelstrom of our juvenile justice system. At every level, it is a book full of grace." -Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent "William Ayers is as sensitive and gifted a chronicler as he is a teacher." -Studs Terkel
