"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"
