employment matters, and allows the reader to come face-to-face with the
evolving American law as it impacts kids either because of their own actions
or the actions of adults in their lives.

>From Youth Today, April, 2003 "Useful for parents, family, friends, teachers,
counselors and others interested in the policies, procedures and programs that
local and national communities are implementing in juvenile law. The book
raises numerous legal questions and concerns that youth have when dealing in
criminal and civil areas of law, either because of their own actions or the
actions of adults in their lives."
>From Struggling Teens website: "This book would be helpful for any person
that might have any contact with the law as it relates to juveniles, and that
includes just about everybody. It would be helpful as a first reference on any
specific situation as to the general gist of how the law might apply."
"John Biggers' work has helped the rest of us negotiate the daunting twists
and turns of the juvenile court system in the country."
