Book Review: No Choirboy

Original blurb published on January 1, 2012.

I read No Choirboy: Murder, Violence, and Teenagers on Death Row by Susan Kuklin for my Materials For Youth class.  A totally different read than anything else I picked up in 2011. It's the nonfiction accounts of several teenagers who were convicted of murder and sent to death row (many are still waiting there) for their crimes. Reading their stories, and their accounts of life in prison, is definitely sobering.

For a more complete review, check out Kirkus Reviews.
