From the PublisherJack Nelson Chief Washington Correspondent, Los Angeles Times Jennifer Toth's powerful and absorbing tale of a teenager whose tendency to violence turned to murder makes a convincing case that such tragedies can be prevented by proper intervention by welfare and juvenile justice systems. She lays bare the faults of both systems in telling how young would-be murderers can be stopped before they kill. It is must reading for anyone concerned about the increasing problem of youths prone to violence.
