A compelling story of a child, only 16, facing life in prison, a must read.


"It’s a handwritten rundown, scribbled on a lined piece of notebook paper, of the dozens and dozens of people she had sexual relationships with during her troubled adolescence. In a detached, analytical tone, she proceeds to sort them by category: rapes (there were many), consensual encounters, those that occurred while she was high on drugs, those preceded or accompanied by beatings...." What kind of Christmases has Cyntoia had during her life??? We, as a society, must do better than this:"
