    Nineteen-year-old Jovan Mosley, a good kid from one of Chicago's very bad neighborhoods, was coerced into confessing to a crime he didn't commit. Charged with murder, he spent five years and eight months in a prison for violent criminals. Without a trial. Jovan grew up on the rough streets of Chicago's Southeast Side. With one brother dead of HIV complications, another in jail for arson and murder, and most kids his age in gangs, Jovan struggled to be different. Until his arrest, he was.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Long Way Home the most enjoyable?

    The story was compelling both in and of itself and as told by the author. The fact that it was non-fiction underscored the importance of the story. Jovan is portrayed in a very real and human way and his story is made all the more scary in how the system can fall down.


    What does Laura Caldwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Laura as author and narrator brings a vibrancy to the story. Her relationship with the experience is conveyed subtly and does not overpower the story/narration but does suffuse it with a sense of her own point of view and urgency.
