Publisher's Summary

Imagine having everything taken away from you - permanently - with no hope of resuming a normal life. This is the case for many teenagers in America who are tried and convicted as adults for the crime of murder. Here Susan Kuklin takes you behind bars for frank interviews with a collection of young men who will spend the better part of their lives in jail. She lets them speak for themselves, providing the raw details of their incarceration and the anger, despair, and surprising hope they experience every day. Kuklin also provides an in-depth look at the American penal system, highlighting its many intricacies and inequities while focusing on capital cases involving juveniles.
Chosen by School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews as a Best Book, No Choirboy is an honest examination of a pervasive problem in America. A full cast of Recorded Books narrators captures each of these unique voices for a powerful audio experience.
