Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595513336, Hardcover)

Still Waters Run Deep is the inspiring, true story of a misguided youth who is placed in a juvenile psychiatric facility at the age of fifteen after being arrested and charged with breaking and entering. There, he finds faith in Christ, which enables him to overcome the hardship with which he is faced and graduate from high school with honors. After graduating from Charles Evans Hughes High School in 1981, author Derek Reeves went on to obtain a bachelor's degree in American history and a master's degree in theological studies. Anyone genuinely interested in understanding the crisis of young black males during the 1960's and 70's will enjoy reading Derek's book, as will anyone who has ever been on the wrong side of the law and achieved salvation from a life of sin. This book will also appeal to anyone interested in understanding the experience of black students at historically white schools. In the context of talking about his struggle to overcome juvenile delinquency and a dysfunctional family, "the author explores the doubts, fears, and perplexities related to being schooled with white children and having a turbulent family life. His writing is honest and self-disclosing, his perceptions keen and discerning."
