LOCKDOWN, by Walter Dean Myers

Reese blew it – he got busted for stealing and now he’s in juvie.  All around him, he sees how crummy life is behind bars, but he doesn’t know if he has the ability to avoid spending the rest of his life there.  Everyone around him has their own problems, and finally Reese, with the help of an old man with challenges of his own, comes to realize that he has to find his own strength to change his life around.
