Time Out Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The riveting true story of the crime, punishment, and transformation of a Seattle boy who came of age inside the adult prison system and who, once on the outside, rebuilt a new life as a man.
After twenty years of incarceration, little was familiar to newly released Willard Jimerson. His once-gritty city was a technology hub. An African American was president. And with a six-inch screen, he could access a vastly changed world. From Claudia Rowe, author of The Spider and the Fly, comes the story of the life Willard took and the life taken from Willard, the story of everything he had to regain and was yet to discover.
Claudia Rowe’s Time Out is part of Missing, a collection of six true stories about finding, restoring, or accepting the losses that define our lives - from the mysterious to the inspiring. Each story can be listened to in a single sitting.

The story centers around Willard, although just a boy, tried and convicted as an adult, and sentenced to an adult prison for over 20 years. Still, amid these many tragedies and with the help of his loving grandmother, Willard chooses to accept his crime by rising above it and reshaping his life.
An inspiring story of reformation and rebirth af a new man willing to change and then spend the rest of his life trying to help other young boys from making the same mistakes he did.
Claudia Rowe shapes a fact-based story of how against all odds a boy without hope is able to remake himself and atone for his crime with honesty and humble dignity.
A worthwhile short read with some great answers and many more questions about how we should help young criminals to change the direction of their lives. I found the author's story moving and eye opening with the companion Audible narration an engaging reading support.
Although, I might not have read any of the individual works of the Missing collection without some strong motivation, as a series, these well-written stories by high quality writers exposed me to people and perspectives I needed to consider carefully and wisely. Together, their synergy motivates needed action, change and more understanding. Lots to think about here.
