In All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook, by Leslie Connor, we meet Perry who has grown up in prison while his mother is a resident. Now his mother's parole is threatened by the well-meaning stepdad of his best friend, and Perry decides to fight back by telling the story of his "family" at the prison.

Happy Reading!
