Rita Kramer

At A Tender Age: Violent Youth and Juvenile Justice

What an important book! It reads like a novel. In lucid and no-nonsense prose Kramer relates the hair-raising details that are far more frightening than the terrors in any Stephen King best seller. What makes her book so chilling is that every word is true. You can not put down At A Tender Age and you will not forget it.
