    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.

    Ginger Heyman Pigott says: "Compelling and important"

    Story
    What did you love best about Long Way Home?

    The story is both horrifying and inspirational.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The endurance of the human spirit and the generosity of the two lawyers who worked pro bono on the case.


    What about Laura Caldwell’s performance did you like?

    I mainly was caught up by the story, not the performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole story was moving and frequently had me close to tears.

    With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa Grant takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family — father, mother, and two children — disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that’s not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.

    Any additional comments?

    The story started out in an interesting manner but quickly deteriorated to a trashy love story, made all the more unbelievable by the events going on around them. The ending was hurriedly tied together and made little sense.
