About this title


Examines the causes, cases, and social and personal impact of the increasing incidence of murders being committed by children and teenagers.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up--A thoroughly researched, insightful look at the histories, motives, and tragic results of juvenile murders in our society. Well-known cases, such as those of the Menendez brothers, are presented as well as numerous lesser-known cases of juveniles murdering strangers, acquaintances, or family members. These incidents are not merely chronicled as cold, isolated facts, but are examined in a thoughtful manner, as Silverstein delves into the situations, family histories, and conditions that motivated or compelled the crimes. One chapter outlines the psychological and social problems underlying the psyches of many young killers. Another is devoted to a discussion of the juvenile-justice system. Yet another describes organizations and programs formed to work with children at risk before their energies are misdirected. The text is fairly dense but not overly scholarly. A few average-quality black-and-white photographs appear throughout but do little to augment the printed content. Silverstein handles this sensitive subject in an evenhanded, intelligent manner. She documents extensive research and is not prone to personal commentary or bias. This book is an important addition to the body of socially relevant nonfiction for young adults and is especially suited for research projects.
