Every school, every town, has troubled kids who will end up dead or in jail, if nobody gives them the love they need. We usually fail these kids, but we don’t need to. Backtrack Boys is grounded, human, real, and hard, but so heartening. If you are a TEACHER I think it will help you from the very first minute, YOUTHWORKERS, COUNSELLORS, and of course parents will learn so much of use about helping kids with their emotions, and their healing and hopes.”
