Narrator Janina Edwards delivers an impassioned performance as she describes the lives of multiple families dealing with the complicated racism and general destructive nature of our nation's mass incarceration system and the school-to-prison pipeline. Each story is made more personal as Edwards tells the heartrending stories of children raised without fathers and mothers, people of color with prison sentences far greater than their Caucasian counterparts, and the horrifying reality of spouses who may never again be able to give their partner simple things like a hug. Edwards has an understanding tone and paces this audiobook in a way that forces us to stop and listen to this difficult topic. V.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
