"In this young adult adaptation of the acclaimed bestselling Just Mercy, which the New York Times calls "as compelling as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so," Bryan Stevenson delves deep into the broken U.S. justice system, detailing from his personal experience his many challenges and efforts as a lawyer and social advocate, especially on behalf of America's most rejected and marginalized people. In this very personal work--proceeds of which will go to charity--Bryan Stevenson recounts many and varied stories of his work as a lawyer in the U.S. criminal justice system on behalf of those in society who have experienced some type of discrimination and/or have been wrongly accused of a crime and who deserve a powerful advocate and due justice under the law. Through the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), an organization Stevenson founded as a young lawyer and for which he currently serves as Executive Director, this important work continues. EJI strives to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, working to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. Praise for Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption: "Important and compelling." --TRACY KIDDER, author of Mountains Beyond Mountains "Gripping. What hangs in the balance is nothing less than the soul of a great nation." --DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate "An inspiring and powerful story." --JOHN GRISHAM, author of A Time to Kill"--"Bryan Stevenson details from his personal experience his many challenges and efforts as a lawyer and social advocate, especially on behalf of America's most marginalized people"--… (mere)

RGG: Important, gut-wrenching. The ending peters out a bit, succombing to more telling than showing, but should be required reading for everyone.

An exploration of Bryan Stevenson's work with the Equal Justice Initiative, the group he founded to help end racial and economic injustice. Stevenson's work on behalf of those wrong incarcerated or those imprisoned for an excessive amount of time. He explores his motivation, investigation, and the status of various cases and causes. A powerful, thought-provoking nonfiction work. ( )
