About this title:

Synopsis: Incorrigible Kids takes the readers on an intimate tour of the Juvenile Court System, similar to Bel Kaufman's view of an intercity school in Up the Down Staircase. It follows a rookie probation officer and the evolution of his attitudes over the course of a year as he as he relates his interactions with fourteen youth offenders. The book does not sugar coat the harsh problems these young people face; their stories give testimony to the intensity of experience and the resilience of the human spirit. These stories are not only tremendously moving, they cause us to re-examine the label ‘incorrigible’ and to the ways we respond to caught in troubled situations. While the characters are fictional, their situations, attitudes and outcomes are drawn from the author's personal experiences working with at-risk youth.

About the Author: Richard Galbraith has a wealth of experience working with at-risk children, including work as a Juvenile Probation Officer, Department of Corrections Research Analyst, Boys' Club manager, school teacher and volunteer Big Brother. He holds Masters degrees in Applied Sociology and Youth Work. Previous publications include memoirs of his childhood and experiences in rural Honduras. He enjoys life with his wife on Cape Cod where he works at Barnstable United Elementary School.
