BOR-ing!!! I read another Siegel book for an intro to criminal justice class and thought it was pretty comprehensive. Imagine my surprise in reading the exact same concepts in this book, supposedly all about the juvenile justice system. It's "Essentials of Criminal Justice" all over again with the word "juvenile" plastered everywhre, that's all.

I don't believe I'll be reading any more of it - there's really no point.

Most of the information in this book was a no brainer for me, but I have already raised a number of children...and I was a teenage pain in the neck once. However, I think it should be a reading consideration for anyone raising children, especially teens.
