This book tells the story from Damien's perspective, which until now was only available through pieces of interviews. If you have been following the West Memphis Three case or have any interest in the case at all, then this book is a must read.

This book is terrible and a waste of money. Only fans of Echols will be able to get through this horribly written story. I did my research and I am certain that many prison details are out and out lies.

    There's no better way to get a sense of what these boys went through than to hear it straight from one of them. It's a nice mix of Damien's history (his life through the years) as well as his experiences in prison. He also includes journal entries leading up to his release. If you are unfamiliar with the case, it's probably not the first book you want to read on the subject as the author doesn't delve into specifics of the case (the only reason I don't give it 5 stars). I would suggest reading something like "Devil's Knot" to get the specifics of the case, the "evidence" against the WM3, and how they were convicted. Once you are familiar with the case, this is a wonderful follow-up. I think everyone should read about how these 3 boys became 3 more victims in a horrible crime. The author's risilience is inspiring. A compelling read that I tore through in about a day.

    Touches your heart

    Damien is an amazing person for keeping his sanity and his moral aptitude during the many years he was on Death Row for a crime he didn't commit. It is frustrating to read his account of corruption in the legal system and the jails, and to witness the power these people had over an innocent man. He is a very gifted writer and I urge you to read his story.
