The Story

With your support, my 16-yr-old daughter will be able to cover the expenses of her book launch. The book is a self-help book for teenagers with incarcerated parents. However, younger children and even parents can benefit from the guide book. It provides a look into what goes on in the mind of a child who is dealing with the shame and anger of having a parent in prison.

This book is a labor of love. It is intended to be a comfort for the children and parents coping in this age of mass incarceration.

The foreword is provided by professors, journalists, and philanthropists who know first-hand the impact of mass imprisonment on families. This is a global epidemic.

Donors who contribute $100 or more will be mailed an autographed copy of this book as a token of appreciation for their support.

Teen Guide to Living With Incarcerated Parents #TGLWIP will be released in early 2018. Thank you in advance for your support!

Young’s work is a testament to both the healing power and deep reservoir of wisdom those who endure the worst of our country’s criminal justice system have to offer. The frustrating wonder of this guide--forged from devastation widely understood as needless and counterproductive--is that its unquestioned value is only matched by the absurd reality that it had to written at all.
