    1. This book "They Broke The Law You Be The Judge" It is actaually an intresting Book because your actually knowin TRUE teen crimes and what they did. But what I like most about this book is that it not only tells you what they did but how they felt during probation and it shows a actaull letter they wrote to the judge about sending them home And then after they go to jail but some fo home it writes about how their live changed or if they kept doing crimes To me it is a fasnating book i relly enjoy [...]


    2. NonfictionGrades Eight- TwelveSummary:These are real cases of teen crimes that came through Judge Thomas Jacobs' courtroom.Evaluation:This is an introduction to the juvenile system. Teen are mostly scared when entering the court but on the end find themselves also sorry.There were twenty-one cases of teens being charged with crimes such as robbing people, breaking into houses, car thief, drug possession and a host of others. The judge listed the cases and went through each one giving the sentenc [...]


    3. This book is listed as a choice for reluctant readers. I can definitely see why. Besides the obvious appeal of teen delinquency, this book has a very interactive lay out. There are insets, handwritten letters, graphics etc that would help hold a reluctant or unskilled reader's attention. The book portrays real cases of teen crime, and the punishments these teens received from the judge/author. The best part is, the book has a lot of critical thinking questions for students to consider. These que [...]


    4. I thought True Cases of Teen Crime was really interesting. It was so astonishing to think that these kids who are my age are getting in to lots of trouble out of serious crimes for example getting caught with marijuana, crystal meth, cocaine, assaulting their parents, stealing things with an expensive value, hiding pipe bombs, threatening to murder a whole school, burglary, selling drugs, getting caught with a gun and drinking under age. It is kind of crazy to think how kids my age could do all [...]


    5. This book focuses on teen crimes and how judges can try to intervene so they can turn their life around. Done with great group discussion questions, this book would be a great book to read as a group. The author does a great job of giving the reader plenty of information about the teen, so the reader can make their own decisions on how best to rule in the teens case. An interesting side to this book is that it actually covers real cases, so the author gives us information on why he made those ru [...]


    6. this is kind of genius. really. i have a feeling this is going to totally engage my kids. the concept is great: real, true stories of kids who have faced sentencing. you get the background on the kid, you get the law, you get the options of sentencing, and all the stuff that is necessary for actual judge to sentence someone. and then there's what the judge actually decided, and the outcome - how the kids were years after. it's totally awesome. really. and for my kids, who at 12, can recite all t [...]


    7. A juvenile court judge offers the true life stories of 21 teens seen by him in his court in this interactive book, which asks readers to participate in the process of sifting through evidence to try to find an appropriate sentence for each offender. Unexamined is the concept that some teens who come before a juvenile court judge may actually be innocent.


    8. at first i thought that this book would suck but it was turned out to be ok because of the way it had some interesting stries of teen crime. the one thing I did not like about this book was that it asked you what you would have done, and i always felt very uneasy and unsure so i always skipped that part, which made the book considerably better


    9. I wasn't too fond of this book. I thought it would be really interesting--I'd get to read about juvenile court cases, decide whether I thought they got what they deserved or not. But it was actually quite boring. All the stories started to sound the same very soon on.


    10. I completely loved this book. It told of true teen crimes,the before,after,and an update of the teens.It made me feel like i was actually a judge,like i could make the actual decision. It was just AMAZING.


    11. i love this i like how the author is descriptive in case my most like case is Adam case i think u should publish another or similar book like this.


    12. I would recommend this book to a friend because this book was really good.I think they would like it because this book makes u wonder why, this book makes u wan't to read more and more.


    13. so far i cannot believe that all those kids broke the law. i never want to do what those kids did because now i know what could happen to me like go to jail.
