In this "moving condemnation of the U.S. penal system and its effect on families" (Parents’ Press), award-winning journalist Nell Bernstein takes an intimate look at parents and children—over two million of them—torn apart by our current incarceration policy. Described as "meticulously reported and sensitively written" by Salon, the book is "brimming with compelling case studies … and recommendations for change" (Orlando Sentinel); Our Weekly Los Angeles calls it "a must-read for lawmakers as well as for lawbreakers."

Ms. Bernstein has managed to write a moving book but without stepping over the line of being to sentimental. I really liked that she brought not only the children into the picture but also mothers, fathers, grandmothers, police officers and more. I really encourage you to take your time and read it. Your world will never be the same again.
