There is no short description for this title.

In response to an invite to participate in a prison diary writing program by the Anne Frank Center, USA (based in New York, N.Y.), Williams immediately began a daily diary fashioned after Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.
Anne Frank, a spunky, precocious Jewish teen wrote her diary while hiding in Amsterdam during World War 11. She died after seven months in a German concentration camp at the tender age of fifteen. She named her diary “Kitty,” and Williams followed her style of personification by naming his diary friend “Lourdes.”

Reviewer: Lois
I highly recommend this book for those who want insight into the daily life a prisoner. This is the opposite of sensational Lockdown shows. Dortell Williams gives us insight into his daily life, his deep understanding of mass incarceration and a view of the "free world" that only a perceptive and often funny writer can provide. A great book for students and people wanting a deeper understanding of prisons and prisoners.
