Summary
Martin Stokes, known as Forty, is a seventeen-year-old awaiting trial on Rikers Island for a minor offense. After his case gets postponed in New York City's dizzying system of overworked legal-aid lawyers and short-tempered judges, Forty embarks on an extended odyssey inside the world's largest and most dangerous jail.
