This book was about several short stories about American court cases that showed how the law was changed. It showed the transformation from around the 1800s to present time. This book was to show how there were several amendment that had to be changed and also how some courts changed our law system forever and made a mark on history. This book was very helpful and showed me lots of fun and interesting cases in which some laws were changed or even totally new laws were implemented. I had to read this book in my after school and this was a very cool book that gave lots of information and was also very interesting.
