Last Chance in Texas By: John Hubner

This is a detailed account of a way one remarkable prison tries to rehabilitates its inmates in Texas. The teens are convicted of crimes ranging from aggravated assault to murder. This is a moving story about the teens, who grow up to inflict on others, the violence that they themselves have suffered.

I learned that youth who grow up abused, and neglected learn to hide themselves in coping. Violence has to do with fraud. It's about trying to feel alive in an environment where you feel dead.

We need to remember, we've got to make teens take responsibility for their actions.

On the whole, I reccomend this book to anyone teen, or adult who wants to read about hope, and light in this violent, and cruel society.
