Join Steven in the fight for his freedom...
Harmon could answer all your questions about the hard time in the cell, and as a 16 year old black kid from Harlem, it's not easy. He's on trial for murder and armed robbery and he claims he's innocent. Though it seems no one believes him, he knows that in order to convince people he is not a monster he must believe in himself.

Calvin Lee: I really recommend this book if you like something that is unique. I couldn’t stop reading once I started. Mr. Myers has done an excellent job by getting into the mind set of an arrested man and writing this great book.
