Under Arrest by Tom Parks is a true story of a young rebel who gets arrested and ends up behind bars. The incident took 10 months out of the author’s life. It also was 10 months where he witnessed just how cruel people could be to each other. More a nuisance rather than a proper thug, this shows insight into a young, misguided mind. The law-abiding public never sees the inside of a prison cell,has had a prison sentence, or has been on the wrong side of the law. Harrowing and emotionally stark in places, the book shows what it is like to get locked up and serve a prison sentence.Intent on breaking the prison’s top rule, which is escaping, the author's re-capture only made him more determined to upset the screws at every opportunity.
