Excellent Book

This provides an excellent overview of how the legal system affects children and families. It was very informational for me as a CASA, and adds great perspective to the overall system ad how it works.

great overview of foster care & judicial system

what book was excellent. Provided a great overview of the issues in foster care and the juvenile system. It is a must-read for anyone considering going into foster care , Casa or considering working with this population of children. Highly recommend, couldn't put it down, great book. The only negative I can say about this book is that it appears it was written about 20 years ago. Because a lot of the references are to things that happened in the eighties or nineties. it would be great if they did an updated version of this book to cover changes in the system within the past 20 years.
