About the BookA memoir detailing writer Mindy Hardwick's experience facilitating a writing workshop with teens in juvenile detention.
The gang leader doesn't like poetry, but will a detention center workshop show her how to express love for her newborn daughter? A teen boy dies of a drug overdose. Will his final poem speak what he can not say?
In the middle of a career change from teacher to writer, Mindy Hardwick volunteered to facilitate a weekly poetry workshop at a juvenile detention center. By helping the teens write poetry about their lives, Mindy discovered strength and courage to grieve the loss of her father, find forgiveness and release the past.
Drug Court Judges, Parole Officers and educators working with restorative justice will find the book beneficial to understanding the young people in their care.
