Long Way Home by Laura Caldwell

When I picked this up I didn't expect it to be a couple of lawyers doing the rescuing in a courtroom but that is exactly what it is. It took some time for me to get into the story and become invested in the outcome. Initially, I was so horrified by the act of violence committed against the innocent victim I couldn't see past that crime to those committed by the purveyors of the legal system. Finally I did move over to be a champion for Jovan and enjoyed the tale of his legal battle but I would have enjoyed a more personal look into Jovan's life, as well as into that of his legal representatives, lending the tale the personal and emotional note I found it lacking.
