9780813586557: Complicated Lives: Girls, Parents, Drugs, and Juvenile Justice (Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies)

Complicated Lives focuses on the lives of sixty-five drug-using girls in the juvenile justice system (living in group homes, a residential treatment center, and a youth correctional facility) who grew up in families characterized by parental drug use, violence, and child maltreatment. Vera Lopez situates girls’ relationships with parents who fail to live up to idealized parenting norms and examines how these relationships change over time, and ultimately contribute to the girls’ future drug use and involvement in the justice system.  
 
While Lopez’s subjects express concerns and doubt in their chances for success, Lopez provides an optimistic prescription for reform and improvement of the lives of these young women and presents a number of suggestions ranging from enhanced cultural competency training for all juvenile justice professionals to developing stronger collaborations between youth and adult serving systems and agencies.

About the Author:

VERA LOPEZ is an associate professor of Justice and Social Inquiry in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University in Tempe. She is the coeditor of Adolescent Girls’ Sexualities and the Media.

Review:

"Excellent and flawlessly written, Complicated Lives is a crucial piece of work. Lopez brilliantly addresses the complex intersectional and myriad of challenges surrounding these girls, their parents, and the juvenile 'justice' system." (Joanne Belknap author of The Invisible Woman: Gender, Crime, and Justice)

?"?Delinquency theory and research has largely ignored criminalized girls and girls of color. For this reason, Complicated Lives fills a huge void.  A must read for those who care about girlhood, with all its complexities and challenges, in America."
  (Meda Chesney-Lind co-author of The Female Offender: Girls, Women, and Crime)
