ANGEL ON THE INSIDE is a personal account of understanding. It
is a memoir illuminating the unlikely places where we find mentors from whom we learn
our most valuable lessons.
From white privilege to prison, it is only through incarceration that Shinagel is gifted her
freedom. In solitary confinement she is alone and invisible; in D Block she is scared and
vulnerable; in C Block she is curious and willing; in minimum she is still scared; she finds
hope; she learns to trust; she begins to understand; and finally she finds freedom.
