RIKERS HIGH by Paul Volponi

RIKERS HIGH by Paul VolponiMartin Stokes could hold his own in the tough New York City neighborhood where he grew up, but that’s nothing – nothing – compared to Riker’s Island. Martin’s been in the Riker’s Island jail for five months and counting, locked up for a crime he didn’t even mean to commit.

After his court date is delayed yet again, Martin gets caught in a razor fight between two warring inmates. Now his face will be forever marked with a jailhouse scar. But one good thing comes from this attack: Martin is transferred to a different part of Rikers, where adolescent inmates are required to attend high school. There he meets a teacher who genuinely wants to help Martin turn his life around. Will he see the light, or be consumed with getting revenge on his attackers?

From a master of urban fiction comes a raw, contemporary, wholly authentic story of high school behind bars.
