Amazon Editorial Review

(If no enough space on back cover, pls ignore the latter quotation PSA_SH)Shelley was running from the Center for the third time. This time she was with Deedee, who had begged to go along. If they were caught and brought back, it would mean "Hard Rock Hotel" high walls, locked gates, barred windows, bare cells.This hard-hitting novel is based on truth. Girls like Shelley have histories of running away, or taking drugs, or sleeping around. Most were not criminals not yet.Readers will not forget Shelley's fight for the right to self-respect and freedom."Gertrude Samuels has opened up the world of 'juvenile justice,' which exists to deal with kids in trouble. Mostly, it gets them into more trouble. The story is very well told in this book, which benefits both from Ms. Samuels' close familiarity with the world she describes and her capacity to bring its people to life."Aryeh Neier, Executive Director of American Civil Liberties Union
