Item Description...
An award-winning journalist's "heart wrenching" ("The San Antonio Observer") look at children with parents in prison--a "Newsweek" "book of the week" and an "East Bay Express" bestseller.
In this "moving condemnation of the U.S. penal system and its effect on families" ("Parents' Press"), award-winning journalist Nell Bernstein takes an intimate look at parents and children--over two million of them--torn apart by our current incarceration policy. Described as "meticulously reported and sensitively written" by "Salon," the book is "brimming with compelling case studies...and recommendations for change" ("Orlando Sentinel"); "Our Weekly Los Angeles" calls it "a must-read for lawmakers as well as for lawbreakers."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Amazing book  Feb 8, 2008
This book is an amazing in depth look into the lives of children with incarcerated parents. The stories are heart-felt and real, and the book then becomes a real eye opener to the injustices created by our justice system. I strongly recommend reading it.
"All Alone in the World"  Nov 29, 2007
Important, compelling, and sad book about the millions of children who have parents in prisons ("A six-year-old crouches behind his bed as armed strangers ransack his home, breaking through floorboards and throwing his parents to the ground. Downstairs, two police cars wait: one for his parents, one for him...."). Nell Bernstein and Soros Foundation deserve our thanks, and these children deserve our support. Ari Kohn
With an Inmate Parent  Oct 25, 2007
The solid if sad truth of what it is really like having a parent arrested and your life disrupted. Honestly and professionally told. I would recommend for teachers and school counselors because these children are in your school no matter where you are located. The more you understand the more you can quietly support the children.
Why are these children judged and sentenced with their parents?  May 14, 2007
A sensitive portrait of the realities of being a child whose parents, one or both are incarcerated.
Well written and tugs at the heart strings! Makes you reflect and think soberly and seriously about this reality for many children. How are they supposed to rise above their unfair and undeserved label? They are also much a victim of their parent's crime and serve their sentences with them.

Every child welfare worker and teacher should read this for insight to the children they come in contact with.
A Wake-Up Call  Jun 23, 2006
We have failed to measure the true cost of our policy of incarcerating offenders and Nell Bernstein describes the costs that we have yet to pay. The damage done to a whole generation of young people who have grown up without their incarcerated parents are coming of age, and we need to recognize and address the problems that the punishment policy has caused.

Ms. Bernstein has introduced us to these children and the sadness that they will carry for the rest of their lives. She makes us care. She has also given us a well researched review of the system and the problems that have been created by society as well as making suggestions on how to prevent or diminish the damage that we are doing.

A must read for anyone who cares about the health of our society.
