Profile Picture

This book has truly changed my life. Tony, a teenager entering his 20's, is in jailĀ again, this time over a twelve pack of beer. He is given 90 days in prison to try and turn things around. Malcolm, a businessman, a "do-gooder" in Tony's words, goes to the County Jail once a week. Malcolm talks about "work, freedom, books, traveling, and God" to the prisoners. Malcolm has helped many people get out of the same situation that Tony is in currently. At every "group," the weekly meeting Malcolm holds, he hands out books.
