this is kind of genius. really. i have a feeling this is going to totally engage my kids. the concept is great: real, true stories of kids who have faced sentencing.

you get the background on the kid, you get the law, you get the options of sentencing, and all the stuff that is necessary for actual judge to sentence someone. and then there's what the judge actually decided, and the outcome - how the kids were years after.

it's totally awesome. really. and for my kids, who at 12, can recite all the reasons you want to get in the juvenile system, this is possibly what i can get them totally engaged in.

i LOVE this book.
