School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-A compelling look at the watershed case that legalized abortion. After providing the historical and political context for the trial, the author takes readers right into the courtroom following both the plaintiff's and defendant's teams as they prepare for the Supreme Court to hear their case. While sharing a great deal of legal and historical information, Romaine manages to examine the people, events, and questions connected to the case in a way that makes the story read like a gripping courtroom drama. This balanced presentation of viewpoints brings a neutral tone to a deeply emotional and personal topic and will engage those interested in both the issue and the law. A succinct timeline, average-quality black-and-white photographs, a helpful glossary, and additional print and Internet resources complete this valuable resource.-Katie O'Dell Madison, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
