Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a superb work, intermingling poetry, narrative, interviews, and examples to create a fascinating overview of what girls experience in the juvenile corrections system, as well as how they are perceived by the people entrusted with their care. Schaffner's book is well-conceived, beautifully written, and extremely clear." - Lynn Chancer, author of High Profile Crimes: When Legal Cases Become Social Causes"

Gave a superficial view. I felt as if it were too short and did not delve into the Topic enough. We barely got a view of the girls it was as if conversations with them were an afterthought, which should not have been so given that he main goal was to give the girls voices

Very insightful and interesting book. Proved extremely useful in my Juvenile Delinquency class, but if you are interested in the subject matter it would be a great choice!
