This is a book about redemption from behind the prison bars!

Joshua King was just a teen when his older homies from the 'hood coaxed him into being their drug runner, burglar and eventually a the shooter in a vicious drive-by.
King was subsequently caught and while going through the judicial process he began to recognize the error of his ways. This is the story of an urban-American boy coming of age behind bars; growing up behind bars and struggling up the climb toward a long, hard redemption while being peer-pressured in the most confined, negative environment imaginable.
During that upward journey, King was raped - twice - by bigger, older and more predatory men that the boy he saw growing in the mirror before he U-turned from that heinous lifestyle. And while Joshua King still has time to do, he will eventually get out. The question this book has for the reader is this: With the strictly punishment model of prisons that America has so readily adopted, will King get out redeemed or more damaged and dangerous?
This is the story of Joshua King. This is the story of tens of thousands of boys (and girls) around the country pressured, misled and then thrown away.
Unfortunately, this is a true American story.
