Although we are locked up, our voices are not locked out! Shout out to my girl, Michelle Miles, author of "The High Price I Had To Pay, Volume 2." Michelle was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for joining her boyfriend's drug operation as a means to escape poverty. Despite her adversities, she has still managed to give back! Michelle made the Top Ten Award List for In The Margins Youth In Custody Book Awards! Her book, which is the second book in my book series, is featured in this month's School Library Journal (SLJ). This is one of the main sources librarians use to decide which books to purchase for their libraries. After spending 18 years behind bars, this soldier girl is finally getting her message out and it is resonating to youth throughout the country! Obama, it's time to set MICHELLE MILES FREE!!! Here is the link to Michelle's feature in this month's SLJ, check it out atwww.slj.com/2015/02/awards/top-2015-titles-for-youth-in-custody-or-in-your-libraries/
Many of you have asked how you can help us in our plight to freedom. Please like this post and tell your friends and family about the Danbury Women who are writing their way to freedom. The more people who know about our stories the better chance we have at coming home. Thanks for your support!
