death penalty A standout choice.Amy Cheney, Alameda County Library, Juvenile Hall, CA Just Mercy is every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways so It demonstrates, as powerfully as any book on criminal justice that Ive ever read, the extent to which brutality, unfairness, and racial bias continue to infect criminal law in the United States But at the same time that Bryan Stevenson tells an utterly damning story of deep seated and widespread injustice, he also recounts instances of human compassion, understanding, mercy, and justice that offer hope Just Mercy is a

Stevenson has worked to free scores of people from wrongful or excessive punishment, arguing five times before the Supreme Court The book extols not his nobility but that of the cause, and reads like a call to action for all that remains to be done The message of the book, hammered home by dramatic examples of one mans refusal to sit quietly and countenance horror, is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made Just Mercywill make you upset and it will make you hopeful Stevenson has been angry about the criminal justice system for years, and we are all the better for it.Ted Conover,
