"Prison life at its grittiest. This is a story about a hostage situation which went horribly wrong. Two cellmates decide to fake a hostage situation but things don't go quite as planned. Contains strong language."
One of the Cool Books series: short, original and extremely powerful readers which have been developed by and for prisoners with basic skills needs. The stories were written and selected by prisoners and the subject matter reflects their lives and is wholly relevant for basic learners in correctional facilities.
The Cool Books File is an accompanying guide to creating resources with adult learner readers in prison (940-0085). The Cool Books Collection (940-0086) includes the Cool Books File and all eight of the Cool Books.
