Just Mercy is a must-read for anyone thinking about becoming a lawyer or going into the criminal justice system. It tells the story of author Bryan Stevenson, as he attempts to get justice for African Americans wrongly incarcerated during a period of widespread racism in the U.S. One thing I liked was the chapter structure as it allows one to not only focus on the main plot but also learn about other examples as this was not a one-time issue for Stevenson. Another thing that I liked about the book is that the events are completely true which kept me invested in the story for long periods of time. This also allows one to connect the events of the book to the events today. One thing I wished to know more about in the book was the author’s upbringing but that is about it. I hope you give this book a try!
