"WOW, THIS IS HARDHITTING STUFF! IT CHaLLENGED ME AS I WROTE."

CONFESSIONS OF A FORMER PROSECUTOR
In 2004, when 16-yr-old, sex-trafficking victim Cyntoia Brown kills a middle-aged man who picks her up, it rocks the Nashville community. Handling her appeal, state prosecutor Preston Shipp argues adamantly for Cyntoia to spend the next 51 years in prison.
Months later, though, Cyntoia's and Preston's lives converge unexpectedly, and the path Preston chooses from that point on will change his life forever. He will question all he thought he knew about mercy, faith, mass incarceration, racism, and our criminal justice system.
