"They take away your shoelaces and your belt so you can't kill yourself no matter how bad it is.I guess making you live is part of the punishment. It's funny, but when I'm sitting in the courtroom I don't feel like I'm involved in the case. It's like the lawyers and the judge and everybody are doing a job that involves me, but I don't have a role. It's only when I go back to the cell I feel involved"
I really like this paragraph from "Monster" by Walter Dean Myers. I like it because most of the book is about the movie Steve Harmon is writing about his own trial. He never really talks about himself. In this paragraph he finally describes how he feels and what he's going through.
