Lynchburg, VA - English students at E.C. Glass High School have a new book to read.
Two hundred copies of the book, "Insights from Inside," were hand-delivered Wednesday morning.
The book is a collection of letters from inmates written to young people, telling them about how bad decisions changed their lives.
Lynchburg City Schools originally got a grant to get the book for students, but an anonymous donor covered the additional cost so each Freshman could have a copy, too.
"Young people are vulnerable and we hope that maybe hearing some wisdom that comes from age and experience might be a powerful tool in helping kids make good choices," said E.C. Glass High School English Teacher Patty Worsham.
Heritage High School also got 200 copies of the book for its students.
