Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up-Truly offers legal scenarios, court cases, advice, and facts about issues involving teens and the law. The book covers a broad range of topics, including abortion, confidentiality, medical care, job-related issues, and dependency and neglect cases. Court cases and tips that may serve as starting points for readers curious about how the legal system applies to them appear throughout. The book also offers advice to those who may find themselves in potentially harmful situations. Attention is given to constitutional rights, rights of a school system, the role of parents, and the responsibilities of employers. With a subdivided table of contents and index, the book is user-friendly. Appendixes give information on the variance of laws from state to state. Some of the topics stretch beyond the legal scope of the book to discuss eating disorders and suicide. These chapters offer advice about seeking help, recognizing danger signs, and helping a friend in need. The book is useful as a quick reference for students interested in their rights at school, at home, and at work.

As an attorney and author, Truly explains the law in terms of situations teens encounter today. She includes summaries of significant court cases that reflect the state of the law and appends a 50-state legal guide that provides a quick reference for finding a state's law on abortion, age of majority, driver's licenses, curfews, emancipation, and more.

The explanations dispel common myths and provide teens, parents, and teachers with important information on rights and responsibilities. Recommended for public and high school libraries.
