Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson

Stevenson is a lawyer who seeks to right the wrongs in the justice system, one case at a time. He writes about how he became involved in this work and he describes many of his cases. He includes so many cases though that it becomes a bit overwhelming at times. I needed to read this book very slowly and take many breaks because the content was painful and hard to read at times.

If you are looking for a lighthearted read, avoid reading Just Mercy. However, if you are willing to sit a little bit outside of your comfort zone and learn more about our justice system, I would recommend slowly reading Just Mercy.
