Books Featuring and For Girls in Detention


We stumbled upon a good blog post by Mindy Hardwick about books featuring youth in detention.  She focuses particularly on a book called After by Amy Efaw which she recommends to young women in detention.

  1. Thanks for linking me to your wonderful blog! I’m a writer and run a poetry workshop in a detention center in Everett, WA. I would be happy to send you copies of our poetry books which include poems by both young ladies and young men who are incarcerated at Denney Juvenile Justice Center. Please e-mail me and let me know if you would like copies to share with your girls and where to send them.
