Exit to Freedom by Calvin C. Johnson and Dr. Greg Hampikian

Calvin C. Johnson Junior’s story shines a spotlight on the issues within the American criminal justice system, yet is story is also one of self-discovery.  Together Johnson and Dr. Greg Hampikian write of a travesty with honesty and integrity.  Even though this story has a happy ending, don’t expect it to read like a novel.  It deals with heavy topics that are handled without ever forgetting there are real people involved.  The authors don’t attempt to paint Johnson as a hero or a victim.  They portray him as a human complete with flaws.  At time he will infuriate you and at others touch your heart deeply.  Telling someone’s truth as it really was is a difficult job, but Johnson and Hampikian shine in Exit to Freedom.
