Lorimer Real Justice

True stories of wrongfully convicted youths who eventually clear their names. These high/low biographies feature compelling storylines, a readable page layout, photos, a glossary and a timeline to appeal to reluctant readers. They are perfect for sparking meaningful discussions on justice, racism, and police tactics in social studies and government classes. Real Justice books are also great for emergent readers in adult literacy programs. A free teacher’s resource guide for the series is available online.
