In a stunning work of insight and hope New York Times bestselling author Wally Lamb once again reveals his unmatched talent for finding humanity in the lost and lonely and celebrates the transforming power of the written word For several years Lamb has taught writing to a group of women prisoners at York Correctional Institu. Very sad book my view of imprisoned women has changed I used to have no compassion for people in prison considering they must have done something bad enough to get there but these women's stories show that most of their problems stem from horribly abusive childhoods and if they had a healthier upbringing most wouldn't be in jail now Some were raped before they were even old enough to spell the word rape The book doesn't focus much on their crimes but their lives before and after their crimes

As a feminist this book is important It's voices directly from the women that the prison industrial complex affects It's a humanizing book that sheds light on a broken criminal justice system Although it is not implicit that the criminal just system is broken it is easy to infer from these women's stories that there are systemic issues in these women's lives that prison does still not address It becomes apparent through these women's words that the way our criminal justice system works now if is a vindictive system Also illuminated is the fact that the same system that is trying to teach them a lesson is partly responsible for failing them in the first placeAnd excellent read that further proves that we need to move back to a prison system that emphasizes rehabilitation and not retribution
