I bought this book with the hope to find out how art saved Anthony Papa's life. I could not put it down. I cried and laughed throughout and want to say that this book should be read by all Americans that care about the human rights of all. I can't wait for the movie

Overall, I really loved this book for so many reasons. The reasons why I loved it was because the whole concept of the story was good and also it was based on the author, Anthony Papa¿s life. With that, I feel like a lot of people can relate to this book in some ways because it¿s someone struggling and come all about at the end. Also, another reason why I liked the book was because the characters that had a big impact on Anthony¿s life were helping him. The way they were helping him were just pushing him to do better like fight his own case because the lawyers that he hired turned their backs on him and he was the only one that he trusted. So, with me liking the book, there weren¿t a lot of things I disliked except for the lawyers in the book because they weren¿t doing the job that they were suppose to and that is why Anthony Papa had to serve fifteen years in prison. <BR/> The audience that the book would attract would have to be mostly young people and people that are just struggling in life and just having a hard time making money or supporting the family. I think that because there is motivation and a push in the book and it would make the reader see from a different view from another person¿s life lesson. Reading all the reviews behind the book and online, there are so many famous celebrities reading this book and that will catch young adults especially because they try to do things that their favorite celebrities do. With that, I know that because that was the only reason why I got this book but when I read the book, it was actually good and understood why celebrities would take time off to read 15 To Life. Also, this book has a positive effect because when Anthony has a lot of feelings inside which he can not express to anyone in the prison, he finds a new hobby, painting, which makes him express his feelings on the painting and his work is actually good.
