Yvonne Stevens Walton Harris’ “Freddy B: My Last Encounter with the Law Got Me a Trip for a One-Year Stay at a Department of Corrections Facility” illustrates Freddy B.’s life’s candor. This is a poignant reminder for all parents and teenagers, which offers insights and lessons that could improve our lives. Sincere and genuine communication in a family is certainly crucial.

David Allen from the Hollywood Book Reviews commends this compelling narrative, acknowledging that “The stops along the way are more than memorable. They are powerfully moving: Freddy writes, apologizing, to his former victims. Freddy writes in his journal, “Sometimes I think even God doesn’t understand me.” Later on, though, he’s made significant progress, as when he writes, “I’m spittin the real.” The vernacular of the streets, reified and exaggerated in the institutional settings, is captured masterfully.”

Moreover, this masterpiece was recently displayed by ARP during the 2024 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books (LATFOB) at the University of Southern California on April 20–21, 2024.
