A five-time winner of the Coretta Scott King Award and a two-time Newbery Honor recipient, Walter Dean Myers has been called "one of the most important writers of children's books of our age" (Kirkus Reviews). Lockdown is the powerful tale of 14-year-old Reese Anderson, who has spent 22 months in a tiny cell at a "progress center." Living in fear and isolation, Reese begins looking within himself to find a way out of the prison system. "The claustrophobia felt by this likable kid trapped in a cruel environment is masterfully evoked..."-Kirkus Reviews
