About the book:

Andrew Vachss is an attorney who specializes in juvenile justice. He's fought the battle against child abuse in courtrooms across the country, in literally hundreds of cases. In this illustrated story album, he's created something that's more nurturing than combative; he's created a preventative medicine. Biology does not make a man a father, nor a woman a mother-we are what we do. That is the underlying theme of the twelve short stories that comprise the graphic story album. Author, Andrew Vachss, places you on a battlefield in Africa, your only living companion a boy patiently waiting to be killed; and on the roof of an old tenement building, strapped into a renovated packing crate that's flying two children across the cosmos; he walks you through the courtroom nightmare of an abused little girl, and he sends you once again across the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood. And when the journey is ended, after all the stories are told, he asks you to remember what children are: another chance for our flawed species. Another chance to get it right.
