I knew this would be a hard read and I was right. I learned so much in this book. I am appalled that this discrimination is going on. I did not know how completely a felony conviction takes over a person's life and how much it ruins that life. This book opened my eyes to the abuses that go on today. I do not know how we can go about correcting the wrongs of mass incarceration but changes do need to happen. This is one book everyone should and must read.
