From Library Journal
Hewlett, an economist, consultant, lecturer, and a volunteer with homeless children, has produced a powerful, extensively researched and often shocking book that explores the plight of a vast number of our children today. She delves into a multitude of problems--substance abuse, emotional instability, and broken homes--that contribute to parental and public neglect. Hewlett also outlines ways society can help to rectify the situation, including educational reform, changes in workplace, and government policies. The author's "no holds barred" approach to the harsh reality of neglect stirs the emotions and will no doubt cause public reaction. This book will be of great interest to professionals and general readers, as it is a well-documented, compelling study that fully analyzes a nationwide problem.- Jo-Anne Mary Benson, Osgoode, Ontario
