A young offender's experience from an award-winning writer for teenagers. At 17, Lee is inside for a crime he has committed. And he soon finds out that prison is not the holiday camp he's heard about. Warned to "play by the rules," he has to decide whose rules—the screws' or the other cons'. Life in a Young Offenders Institution is about survival. But the real struggle is inside Lee himself. Is he destined to be a "career con," or can he choose to change his life?
