Under Arrest by Tom Parks is a true story of a young rebel who gets arrested and ends up behind bars. It tells of the 10 months out of the author's life and 10 months where he witnessed just how cruel people could be to each other. More a nuisance rather than a proper thug, this is an insight into the young, mis-guided mind. The law-abiding general public never see the inside of a prison cell, receive a prison sentence, or be on the wrong side of the law. Harrowing and emotionally stark in places, perhaps that public should know what it is like to get locked up and serve a prison sentence. Intent on breaking the prison's top rule -- escaping -- the author recaptures what made him more determined to upset the screws at every opportunity.
