During the summer of 2012, author Kimberly Shedrick was incarcerated in one of America’s toughest jails – Maricopa County Estrella Tents. Uncovered in this book are publicly unknown details about inmate population, the never-ending revolving horseshoe, and housing conditions that will amaze critics. Some of the most horrifying stories of mistreatment of women involve miscarriages and incidents of death and suicide.
As new American Princesses, eleven women courageously tell their stories of struggle and survival, while sharing a unique experience in Tent City. In the end, these women gain a sense of self-awareness that would aid tremendously in their growth and future success.
In the darkness the truth shall always yield to the light of day. Inmates say, “I wasn’t arrested…I was rescued….”
