Review by Tony Hughes (Masters in Social Research, with a long career in alternatives for custodial care of young offenders / community intermediate care):

"A very impressive book. The letters and drawing from the children were poignant and meaningful. Denise Stephani is clever in the way she skilfully brings the messages together through the narrative. Accessible for all and a great way to engage youth with the many social issues the book raises."
