In Leslie Glass' Hanging Time, a group of teenagers are sentenced to life in prison for a crime they didn't commit. As they struggle to adjust to their new reality, they must find ways to cope with the harsh conditions of prison and build relationships with one another.
The novel is based on the true story of the West Memphis Three, three young men who were convicted of the murders of three children in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. Hanging Time is the story of their trials and their eventual release after spending 18 years in prison.
Glass' novel is a powerful exploration of the impact that imprisonment has on the human psyche. It is an emotionally-charged story that will leave readers feeling angry and frustrated, but also inspired and hopeful.; 8vo; FSA.
