JUST MERCY [ADAPTED FOR YOUNG ADULTS] A True Story of the Fight for Justice

by | Read by Bryan A. Stevenson

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Bryan Stevenson's critically acclaimed book has moved college students and adults around the country. Now the YA audio adaptation can reach teen audiences. As narrator, Stevenson's voice is gentle, but his powerful words and evocative stories makes it perfect for family listening and discussion. The memoir begins with his life-changing experience as a newly graduated Harvard attorney sent to see Walter McMillan on death row in an Alabama prison. The story of McMillan, a poor man convicted because of racial prejudice, is central to the narrative, Stevenson's life, and his founding the Equal Justice Initiative. Stevenson speaks of mass incarceration and discrimination based on socioeconomics, gender, and race. His views of teen prisoners sentenced to life are particularly relevant to a YA audience.
