“And though some could book read, most could not. Stars and moon and roads. Picture reading was what they’d always known.” There are several effective ways of communicating with others.

I believe that this book was written by cultural insider. Prior to reading this, I had never came across a book which solely focused on a jail visiting day. My first im-pressions were negative. I would not want children to think that the majority of criminals in jail are African American. I did not know that there were au-thors who focused on covering
