No Matter How Loud I Shout

A Year in the Life of Juvenile Court

This award-winning and bestselling investigative narrative pierces the secrecy and scandal of the one place designed to save kids, though it too seldom does. No Matter How Loud I Shout provides a poignant, human look at a year in the life of Los Angeles Juvenile Court – and a vivid portrait of the children who pass through it.

Washington Post: “Passionate… A sad, maddening, brilliant book.”

New York Times: “A finely etched, powerfully upsetting portrait.”

Washington Monthly: “Reads like a pilot for a Michael Crichton TV series… Stories careen by in an “ER”-style blur but still manage to touch a nerve. Humes has produced a thoughtful, nuanced work, set apart from the flood of wonkish policy books by his often beautiful prose.”
