When I first started reading this book, I was thinking, well, these kids are punks - they deserve to be punished for what they have done. However, not without a parent at the trial, and certainly not without a lawyer! I would do everything in my power as a parent to fight a sentence like that, too. Having also grown up in a small town, I understand how everyone sticks together making it very hard for an outsider to come in and fight the system. Everyone either knows everyone very well, or is related! It's quite the struggle for these two dads to get their sons out - and what their sons are going through while stuck in this so called camp. It would be a great idea if it was done right - but as you'll see when you read this book, it's all about something else. (Don't want to give spoilers, though I am sure you can guess)
If you enjoy thrillers and courtroom action, you'll enjoy The Conviction. It's a well written, fast paced read.
