I find this one really hard to rate. On the one hand, it is an important story highlighting racial injustices in the US. It also touches on arguments against the death penalty and on how it disproportionately impacts POC and the mentally ill and disabled. As a book, however, it is ok. This is only the author‘s account of his personal experiences, which were horrible, and not a broader discussion of the issues noted above. Writing was also so-so.
