All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook

Leslie Connor, 2016

This story, along with the titular protagonist's life, begins inside the Blue River Co-ed Correctional Facility in Surprise, Nebraska. Perry Cook's mother, Jessica, is twelve years into a fifteen-year sentence for an undisclosed, nonviolent crime. Perry goes to a regular public school, but is able to live in the facility because of a kind warden, who decided to foster him so he would not be separated from his mother. However, when the district attorney learns of Perry's unusual situation, he is yanked from the only home he has ever known and placed with a foster family. This leads Perry on a quest to discover the true nature of his mother's crime as he attempts to be reunited with the people he considers family.
