Kuklin S. No choirboy: Murder, violence, and teenagers on death row. Vol 1st. New York: Henry Holt and Co.; 2008. Abstract

"Until recently, only eight countries in the world still sentenced people younger than eighteen to death for their crimes -- Iran, China, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, and the United States of America. No Choirboy takes readers into American prisons and allows inmates sentenced to death as teenagers to speak for themselves. In their own voices - raw and uncensored - they talk about their lives in prison and share their thoughts and feelings about how they ended up there. Susan Kuklin also gets inside the system, exploring capital punishment itself and the intricacies and inequities of criminal justice in the United States. This is a searing, unforgettable read, one that could change the way we think about crime and punishment." Lexile measure 690; ages 14-up; book level 5.2; nonfiction
