Tough Case (print)

Sixteen-year-old Dane is in trouble. He’s been arrested and charged with break and enter, vandalism, resisting arrest and carrying a dangerous weapon. Faced with a criminal record, Dane accepts the judge’s offer to go through a restorative justice process. There he meets Nessa, a passionate restorative justice case worker from Halifax’s tough north end. Nessa breaks through Dane’s defensiveness but faces an angry and articulate enemy in the character of the victim’s son, Tom Ross, who wants Dane punished and imprisoned instead of “restored.” A fast-moving, contemporary story from one of Canada’s most successful dramatists about one teen’s journey through the restorative justice system, a mother fighting for her son, the scared and angry victims of a senseless crime, and the mediator who, just barely, brings them together.
