"I ask myself, What's to be done with my life now?" Until a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2005, sentencing juvenile offenders to death for their crimes was still legal in twenty states. In separate interviews, the author speaks to three young men sentenced to death prior to the Supreme Court decision. She also speaks with the family of a teen who was executed, the family of a murder victim, and an anti-death penalty advocate. Author's note. Further reading. Black-and-white photographs.
