"For fifteen years, novelist and publisher Jerome Gold worked as a rehabilitation counselor in a prison for juveniles in Washington state. Throughout his time there he kept a journal of his experiences with youths who had been incarcerated for murder, kidnap, assault, rape, auto theft, burglary, and selling drugs - kids for whom juvenile prison was a rite of passage. What started as a private journal became a harrowing account of one man's unshakable quest to get to know the hundreds of kids he counseled. Writing with unflinching candor, Gold holds up a mirror to these "deviants" - and to us all."--BOOK JACKET.
