Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
This small paperback packs much useful information about our legal system in general, and, specifically, the legal rights of girls and women. It is done in a question and answer format, which makes the book easy to read and use as a reference. Part of the American Civil Liberties Union series of "Handbooks for Young Americans," the book presents a thoughtful overview of important issues affecting young women and how these issues are protected and impacted by the United States legal environment. The text is straightforward and easy to read. It certainly can empower readers, who will learn about some of their legal rights and how to take action if those rights are violated. Although the focus is on girls/women, the text is instructive for both sexes because it discusses landmark court cases and provides general information about how the legal system operates. In addition, male readers should better appreciate why certain rights for women exist.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This title may be most valuable for its explanations of important legal concepts such as common law and precedent, and the distinctions it makes between civil and criminal law. In addition, various chapters outline related laws and court decisions. "Your Mind" examines gender issues in education. Questions such as "Can girls participate in all school athletic programs?" are presented in boldface and then answered in three or four paragraphs. "Your Body" includes an informative history of the Roe v. Wade decision, other topics relevant to the issue of reproductive freedom, and HIV testing. "Your Home and Family" deals with divorce, custody, and child support. Readers will appreciate the explanations of terms they may have heard but not clearly understood, such as "no fault divorce." Unfortunately, Moss sometimes summarizes study findings without citing the source, using such vague terms as "One study has shown that when men do request [custody], they prevail over half the time." Still, there is a respectable bibliography and a list of organizations with addresses and telephone numbers (no Web sites). A good source of legal information for students of either gender.-Rebecca O'Connell, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
