A Kids Book About Incarceration

Ethan brings so much heart and integrity to a difficult situation for kids and grownups alike. And his life is a shining example of how even making a terrible mistake can lead to growth and possibility when someone takes responsibility for their actions, and does all they can to make amends. His straight-forward narrative will comfort kids and their adults.

Solid Perspective.

Thrower's offering on what incarceration means to him, to family, to community - to all of us - is packaged for kids, and a must-read for kids of all ages across the ages. His passionate, direct account holds nothing back revealing the costs to our society by sanitizing incarceration and placing it "out there" somewhere. All of us are impacted and all of us will benefit from this uplifting, informative, and liberating narrative. The author's gift truly shines.
