Kids in orange : voices from Juvenile Detention by Mindy Hardwick

The gang leader doesn’t like poetry, but will a detention center workshop show her how to express love for her newborn daughter?  A teen boy dies of a drug overdose. Will his final poem speak what he cannot say?  
In the middle of a career change from teacher to writer, Mindy Hardwick volunteered to facilitate a weekly poetry workshop at a juvenile detention center. By helping the teens write poetry about their lives, Mindy discovered strength and courage to grieve the loss of her father, find forgiveness and release the past.
My review :- poignant, eye opening and insightful.  The book lets us in on the psychology of children in juvie with an intriguing and insightful take. This was 4.5 stars book . I loved it and would recommend it to everyone. this book with its unique voice and moving prose is a must read for every one.
