About the Author:

Charles Appelstein, MSW, is a independent youth care specialist. He provides training and consultation nationwide to schools, treatment centers, foster care agencies, and parent associations. He has worked with at-risk children and youth for over twenty years.

Review:

"Every child and youth care worker needs to step into the thoughts of youth at risk in order to understand why they act the way they do. Charlie Appelstein uses his broad experiences in the field - and his considerable creative writing skills - to give voice to a fictional youth-in-care. Textbooks just can't say it like Gus does." -- Larry Brendtro, Ph.D., Dept. of Spec. Ed., Augustana College, South Dakota
