No Choirboy: Murder, Violence, and Teenagers on Death Row by Susan Kuklin
The author of this nonfiction book talks to real people who are affected by the death penalty. Several of the chapters are told by teens who have been convicted of murder and are or have been on death row. Other chapters talk to the families of victims and how they have been affected by these crimes as well as how they feel about the teens responsible. This is an unflinching look at life in prison and the impact on young people who are incarcerated for decades after their crime.
