Author William Ayers has spent five years as a teacher and observer in Chicago's Juvenile Court prison, a system that epitomizes American justice for children. Through Ayers's brilliant portraits, we see young people telling their stories, analyzing their situations, and thinking about their futures. Dickensian in its tragic detail and dimension, Ayers's book still is hopeful and important for parents or anyone working with children and adolescents.
