    Description

    The young adult adaptation of the acclaimed, number one New York Times best seller Just Mercy - now a major motion picture starring Michael B. Jordan, Jaime Foxx, and Brie Larson and now the subject of an upcoming HBO documentary feature!

    In this very personal work - adapted from the original number one best seller, which the New York Times calls "as compelling as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so" - acclaimed lawyer and social justice advocate Bryan Stevenson offers a glimpse into the lives of the wrongfully imprisoned and his efforts to fight for their freedom.

    Stevenson's story is one of working to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society - the poor, the wrongly convicted, and those whose lives have been marked by discrimination and marginalization. Through this adaptation, young people of today will find themselves called to action and compassion in the pursuit of justice. 

    Proceeds of this book will go to charity to help in Stevenson's important work to benefit the voiceless and the vulnerable as they attempt to navigate the broken US justice system.

    Commentaires

    Just Mercy is every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so.... [It] demonstrates, as powerfully as any book on criminal justice that I’ve ever read, the extent to which brutality, unfairness, and racial bias continue to infect criminal law in the United States. But at the same time that [Bryan] Stevenson tells an utterly damning story of deep-seated and widespread injustice, he also recounts instances of human compassion, understanding, mercy, and justice that offer hope.... Just Mercy is a remarkable amalgam, at once a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.” (David Cole, The New York Review of Books)

    “Inspiring...a work of style, substance and clarity...Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.” (The Washington Post)
     

    “A searing, moving and infuriating memoir...Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela. For decades he has fought judges, prosecutors and police on behalf of those who are impoverished, black or both.... Injustice is easy not to notice when it affects people different from ourselves; that helps explain the obliviousness of our own generation to inequity today. We need to wake up. And that is why we need a Mandela in this country.” (Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times)

    Amazing!!

    I had to read it for a class course and I’m glad my professor chose this book because this book is amazing! It’s very interesting and educated me how unfair the criminal justice system was back then. I highly recommend this book. Also, the book being available in audio was really convenient! I would listen to it every time I got into my car.

    A Must Read

    I love everything about this book. Made me cry both sad and happy tears. I’m praying for more people like Bryan that our world needs. I am a fan seeing and hearing people win, no matter what. God has BIG plans for Bryan and he saw that and is being the hands and feet our Father has called him to be.

    Breathtaking

    I was in tears multiple times through this book. Bryan Stevenson’s story of “catching stones” and “just mercy” is so inspiring. I am grateful for his work and that he has shared that work with a broader audience. I would recommend this book to everyone.

    A Critical Look at the American Justice System for young adults

    This book is a must read for everyone, Stevenson takes an incredible deep dive into the ways in which the institutions of the Slave Trade, Jim Crow, Mass Incarnation have immense consequences on marginalized communities and how it is critical that we discuss the inequalities/consequences that stem from these institutions in order to bring change to the systems that oppress these groups. He uses personal experience, stores of specific injustices of youth, stories of the wrongfully convicted, and ties it all in to how it is a systemic issues that plague our nation. MUST READ!

    Amazing—a great Mockingbird Replacement

    So excited about this book—can’t wait to swap To Kill a Mockingbird out for this in next year’s English curriculum!
