Overview

Every day, about 70,000 young people are detained within the U.S. criminal justice system. Thousands of them are tried as adults, and housed in adult prisons. Once in detention centers and jails, young people are vulnerable to violence and sexual abuse. This book presents a powerful, real-world look at the lives of these vulnerable young people.
