“The Second Trial” is a read of a child finding it hard to adapt to a new world, which many young readers may find relation to. Highly recommended. (Midwest Book Review
Author Rosemary Boll is a lawyer and her background in family law shows in this well-informed and uncomprimising novel. This kind of story is often not presented in such ordinary surroundings and I admire the author’s choice of everyday realism. (Resource Links
This first-time author provides a thoughtful account of life amid the world of domestic abuse, where children can feel confused when adults are not who they pretend to be. Sadly, this topic affects too many families, so it’s timely and helpful to have this insightful literature for assignments and general interest in both public and school libraries. (VOYA
