When Deet’s father is arrested for drug use, Deet cannot believe it. His easygoing, loving father isn’t an addict! But Dad was working two jobs to make more money and taking pills to stay awake during the night shift. And now he’s in jail. Hurt, scared, and angry, Deet doesn’t want to see his father in prison. But when Mom goes back to work and no longer has the time, Deet decides to start visiting his dad after school. It’s scary at first, but as he adjusts to the routine and learns more about the prisoners and their lives, Deet begins to realize that prison isn’t necessarily the horrible, violent place of movies and nightmares.

Told from Deet’s perspective, Do Not Pass Go sheds light on the tumultuous experience of having a parent in jail and gives insight into the everyday lives of prison inmates and the stories behind what brought them there.

About the Author:

Kirkpatrick Hill lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was an elementary school teacher for more than thirty years, most of that time in the Alaskan "bush." Hill is the mother of six children and the grandmother of eight. Her three earlier books, Toughboy and Sister, Winter Camp, and The Year of Miss Agnes, have all been immensely popular. Her fourth book with McElderry Books, Dancing at the Odinochka, was a Junior Library Guild Selection. Hill's visits to a family member in jail inspired her to write Do Not Pass Go.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—High-schooler Deet is a good kid but feels alienated at his school in Fairbanks, AK, because his family has less money than his classmates. When his father is arrested for drug possession and sent to prison, his first thought is about what the kids at school will think of him. Reality sets in as life in Deet's family changes dramatically. His mother goes back to work and Deet spends every day after school with his dad. His view of prisons and prisoners begins to change when he learns people's stories. Deet's notebook entries for his English class give readers insight into the internal changes he is experiencing. The teen sees the bleakness of prison life but learns to see the positive effects of his father's incarceration. While the message that prisons aren't necessarily set up to rehabilitate criminals is not subtle, this a good story with a believable main character. The book wraps up a bit quickly with Deet's father's release to a halfway house, but is still satisfying as it doesn't tie things up too neatly.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH
