Abstract:

An account of the way one remarkable prison rehabilitates its inmates. While reporting on the juvenile court system, journalist Hubner kept hearing about a facility in Texas that ran one of the most successful treatment programs for violent young offenders in America. Now Hubner shares what he found over months of unprecedented access to the Giddings State School, home to "the worst of the worst": four hundred teenage lawbreakers convicted of crimes ranging from aggravated assault to murder. Hubner follows two of these youths--a boy and a girl--through harrowing group therapy sessions in which they, along with their fellow inmates, recount their crimes and the abuse they suffered as children. The young offenders reenact these soul-shattering moments with other group members in cathartic outpourings of suffering and anger that lead, incredibly, to genuine remorse and the beginnings of true empathy--the first steps on the long road to redemption.--From publisher description.
