THE FREE by Lauren McLaughlin is about a boy named Isaac West. A boy who was raised in a troubled house without a father, Isaac starts to steal and eventual he finds himself in Juvie. During his sentence, he is put through very intense therapy where he has to reenact his crime. The book is about Isaac figuring out he wants to be and who he is. I really liked the book--it touches on stuff that happens in real life, like having abusive parents and being in prison. It was written well and I enjoyed the plot. I suggest you read this book.
