This book explores education for juvenile offenders in relation to Passages Academy, which is both similar to and representative of many school programs in juvenile correctional facilities. Examining the mission and population of this school contributes to an understanding of the ways in which the teachers think about and ultimately act with respect to their detained juveniles students, and particularly illustrates how the tension between punishment and rehabilitation is played out in school policies and design. By calling attention to the decisions that surround juvenile detention education, the extant research concentrates on three main areas: first, the social, political, and pedagogical forces that determine who enters the juvenile justice systems; second, how these court-involved youths are educated while they are in the system; and third, the practical problems and the social justice issues youths encountered when transitioning back to their community schools. “I Hope I Don’t See You Tomorrow is both heartwarming and heartbreaking: its vast empathy for the students that L. A. Gabay teaches is edifying, while its unsparing examination of the forces that push youth into detention is soul shearing. Gabay is at once Tocqueville and Kozol: he brilliantly guides us through the educational territory that is foreign to most of us, even as he paints a searing portrait of teachers who shape lesson plans for students who must learn under impossible conditions. Gabay’s haunting and eloquent missive from the front lines of pain and possibility couldn’t be more timely as the nation’s first black president seeks to lessen the stigma of nonviolent ex-offenders in our society. Gabay’s book confronts the criminal justice system at its institutional roots: in the economic misery and racial strife of schooling that compounds the suffering of poor youth as they are contained by a state that often only pays attention to them when they are (in) trouble. Gabay opens eyes and vexes minds with this stirring and sober account of what it means to teach those whom society has deemed utterly expendable.” – Michael Eric Dyson, author of The Black Presidency: Barack Obama and the Politics of Race in America “As a beneficiary of Lee Gabay and his colleague’s patience, discipline, and compassionate teaching at the school, this timely book beautifully decrypts the pedagogical framework within the juvenile justice system. As America comes to term with its zeal for incarceration, policymakers, educators, government officials, parents and advocates should take advantage of this carefully written book and use it as reflection and pause as we prepare our young court-involved students towards adulthood.” – Jim St. Germain, Advisory counsel on President Obama’s Taskforce on Police & Community Relations and Mayor Bloomberg’s Close to Home initiative

Tommie Bauer is an ordinary young American drafted into a war to defend freedom in Southeast Asia, a war that consumes his life, as he knew it. Through the eyes of this highly trained young patriot, we discover how constant exposure to killing, death and dying poses a serious threat to the psychological, physical and emotional wellbeing of a combatant. Day to day, while humping the thick jungles of Vietnam, Bauer escapes one day's nightmare only to be engulfed in more gruesome ones in following days. His assigned mission is to seek and destroy the enemy. However, his immediate mission becomes the struggle to outlast the enemy while battling constant sorrow and hardship. Equally important, he must avoid occupying the next body bag tagged for appropriate disposal. He has to kill or be killed and do his part to increase the enemy body count, the bloody measure of who is "winning." Bauer finds himself trapped in this brutal and morally confusing nether world. During his journey through hell he meets a precocious young nurse while convalescing. She unknowingly becomes the incentive Bauer needs to endure his ordeal. This is Bauer's story, his struggle to rationalize the need for war and the carnage it creates. He is troubled by his exposure to combat and the changes he sees within himself, which he knows might haunt him the rest of his life.

Travel back to 1944, and look at World War II through the eyes of a 22-year old father of two, shipped off to Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Illinois. Homesick and in love, Ray Langen wrote two or three letters a day to Rose Rita, expressing his feelings and describing his daily routine—through Navy school, troop train travel across the West, VJ Day celebrations in San Diego, a typhoon aboard the USS Kent Island, shore liberty in Honolulu, engine room watch on the USS Hamul, exploration of decimated Okinawa, and many more eye-opening experiences. How the war affected civilians in the United States of America is captured through Rose Rita’s letters as well as those of Ray’s brothers and sisters. These detail how they coped on the home front in the German/English/Irish/Swiss farm town of Hokah, Minnesota, waiting for their loved ones to return. In a letter written while in Buckner Bay in Okinawa, Ray wrote: “There are lot of souvenirs a guy could take home if he had room, but most of the things left to take are so big they ain’t practical, and I don’t want a skull or anything like that. One guy smuggled a skull aboard and wants to take it home. I don’t want any. Some fellows took a couple of bigger bones (probably leg bones) out of a tomb and also a skull and made a skull and cross bones on a rock and had their picture taken next to it. This is sure a gruesome letter, but everything on the island is gruesome. I only saw two buildings that were still standing in the four miles we drove. There are lots of walls that stick out of the ground a couple of feet. Whole villages that are just leveled. Even the trees are shot up and burned.”

Single and known for never finishing a romance novel, Laurie Wilcox is a creature of habit whose work consists of picking up after customers and helping them choose skimpy, yet still legal, outfits. In Fall River, Massachusetts, life is mundane to say the least—that is, until a handsome stranger walks into her store and changes her life forever. While the stranger pays for his purchase, his hand grazes Laurie’s. Suddenly, she is fed an image of a man with fangs who is about to bite. As he smiles and leaves, Laurie experiences a weird, almost déjà-vu feeling. But when the stranger returns and invites Laurie and her co-worker to a dance club, Laurie is disturbed. Something about Alexander Young is making her feel uneasy, but despite her worries, she finally agrees, opening herself up to new experiences and a potential romance. But when a part of Laurie’s life is put into question—as well as the people in it—she must decide whether friendship, life, and most importantly, love is worth all the sweet deception.

In this magically evocative novel, William Maxwell explores the enigmatic gravity of the past, which compels us to keep explaining it even as it makes liars out of us every time we try. On a winter morning in the 1920s, a shot rings out on a farm in rural Illinois. A man named Lloyd Wilson has been killed. And the tenuous friendship between two lonely teenagers—one privileged yet neglected, the other a troubled farm boy—has been shattered.Fifty years later, one of those boys—now a grown man—tries to reconstruct the events that led up to the murder. In doing so, he is inevitably drawn back to his lost friend Cletus, who has the misfortune of being the son of Wilson's killer and who in the months before witnessed things that Maxwell's narrator can only guess at. Out of memory and imagination, the surmises of children and the destructive passions of their parents, Maxwell creates a luminous American classic of youth and loss. From the Trade Paperback edition.
