Van Trell has grown up while her dad has been in prison; he was falsely convicted of murder when Van Trell, or Trell,  was just a baby. Now that Trell is 14, she is determined to help prove her father’s innocence. Trell finds an investigative journalist to help her with her search for truth, but digging into the past can sometimes bring up things you would rather not know. Will their investigation help repair the system that put her dad in prison, their broken drug infested neighborhood, or even just Trell’s family?

If you enjoy reading about criminal justice, you might also enjoy All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook, by Leslie Connor, or the autobiography/biography The Other Wes Moore, by Wes Moore.
