In Chinese, the word for America, Mei Guo, translates directly to “beautiful country.” Yet when seven-year-old Qian Julie Wang arrives in New York City in 1994 full of curiosity, her family is “illegal” and it will require all the determination and small joys they can muster to survive. Beautiful Country puts listeners in the shoes of an undocumented child living in poverty in the richest country in the world.

Jarrett Adams was seventeen when an all-white jury sentenced him to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Now a pioneering lawyer, he recalls the journey that led to his exoneration—and inspired him to devote his life to fighting the many injustices in our legal system. Redeeming Justice is an unforgettable firsthand account of the limits—and possibilities—of our country’s system of law.
