This review is from: Among the Hoods: My Years with a Teenage Gang (Hardcover)
I had this book drawn to my attention by a friend who heard Harriet Sargeant being interviewed on Radio 2. My friend and I are both regular visitors to a Young Offenders Institution as Samaritans, so we are interested in young lads who have committed criminal offences and have got know many of them very well. With this background neither of us were surprised to read about Harriet's experiences but we realised that they would be an eye-opener to most people - people who dismiss "Hoodies" and the like without knowing anything about them. Harriet bravely entered the hoodies world and what a shock she got! Buy the book and read Harriet's story - it'll change your ideas of hoodies I bet, and will also give you a good insight into a world you know nothing about.
