Please review the testimonial below about how my book addresses the mental health issues affecting our youth.

Ms. Burney,

Hello! I am a subcontracted counselor with DJJ – I recently read your book, “If These Chains Could Talk”. I was informed of it by one of the kids in my group for juvenile felons and delinquents (although I hate that word!). Thank you for your words – we have been reading it in group and the young men are sometimes visibly shaken from hearing the letters – some of them lived that life.

Again, thank you and also for your service to our community!

Angela Atkins, M.Ed.
