I was the youngest manager in the companies history. The company I worked for was the number one convenience store in the state. I was on the fast track to working a job that I liked for the rest of my life. I was extremely good at what I did and was respected not only by my peers but by my customers. Did you ever have something taken away from you that you really liked? Well I did. Along with the success I was enjoying came the status symbols I used to impress other people, like the new sports car I bought and all the accessories I had put on it, or the second sports car I had that was a classic, to drive when I wished. Did you ever have something taken away from you that you really liked? Well I did. Did you ever have all this bitterness built up inside of you, not wanting to let go of it and move on with your life? Did you ever want to give up and act like you are alone? Well I did. I went beyond these obstacles and many others to get to where I am today and I'm going to tell you how I did it and maybe you will be able to overcome the obstacles that you are confronted with, whatever they may be, if you read this book.

Why Giving Teenage Killers a Second Chance Matters for All of Us
Author: James Garbarino
Publisher: Univ of California Press
Miller’s Children is a passionate and comprehensive look at the human consequences of the US Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Miller v. Alabama, which outlaws mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juvenile murderers. The decision to apply the law retroactively to other cases has provided hope to those convicted of murders as teenagers and had been incarcerated with the expectation that they would never leave prison until their own death as incarcerated adults. Psychological expert witness James Garbarino shares his fieldwork in more than forty resentencing cases of juveniles affected by the Miller decision. Providing a wide-ranging review of current research on human development in adolescence and early adulthood, he shows how studies reveal the adolescent mind’s keen ability for malleability, suggesting the true potential for rehabilitation. Garbarino focuses on how and why some convicted teenage murderers have been able to accomplish dramatic rehabilitation and transformation, emphasizing the role of education, reflection, mentoring, and spiritual development. With a deft hand, he shows us the prisoners’ world that is filled, first and foremost, with stories of hope amid despair, and moral and psychological recovery in the face of developmental insult and damage.

A Boy Given a Second Chance

Category: Biography & Autobiography
In October 2003, I became a victim of traumatic brain injury. That’s when I was hit and dragged by a pickup truck while riding a Big Wheel trike at a friend’s party. Emergency brain surgery saved my life, but I lost a portion of the back part of my brain. At the age of ten, I had to learn how to breathe, swallow, talk, eat, stand, sit, walk—everything— all over again. Traumatic brain injury is one of the leading causes of disability among children, yet, because of the complexity of the brain, experts still have much to learn about how to treat TBI. In When the Lights Go Out, I describe my therapies—what’s worked, what hasn’t, and why—and share how I learned to cope with the emotional and psychological challenges. In the process, I have discovered the critical roles that faith in God, love of family, the healing power of friends, and the inherent goodness of people all played in my ability to triumph over overwhelming odds. I have also learned that a horrific accident has given me an amazing gift. When the Lights Go Out is an expression of that gift.
