Description
In this young adult adaptation of the acclaimed bestseller 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.AS SEEN ON CBS THIS MORNING!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.A NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY BEST BOOK OF 2018A KIRKUS REVIEWS BEST BOOK OF 2018PRAISE FOR JUST MERCY: A TRUE STORY OF THE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE:"It's really exciting that young people are getting a version tailored for them." --Salon"A deeply moving collage of true stories. . . .
