Award-winning author Patrice Lawrence explores the harsh reality of the criminal justice system for young people in this riveting teen drama. A powerful and heart-rending exploration of a teenager’s journey through grief, rage and getting caught in the criminal justice system from award-winning author Patrice Lawrence. Charlene is a demon knitter. It’s the only thing she enjoys and the only thing she believes she’s really good at. So when her foster mum’s son destroys her latest creation, Charlene loses it and stabs him in the hand with her knitting needle.

It damages a nerve and she gets sucked into the criminal justice system for assault. Charlene's not sorry and she’s never apologised to anyone in her life.

But people keep telling her that if she says sorry, they’ll go easier on her.

Can she bring herself to say it and not mean it when her freedom’s at stake?
