Bad : Dallas is sentenced to six months in the Girls' Rehabilitation Center when her father refuses the judge's offer to take her home on parole. The 16 year old has held up a convenience store at gunpoint, the ultimate episode in a petty-crime spree she's undertaken with her manipulative boyfriend . . . Dallas's story gives readers an excellent opportunity to see the many angles involved in such issues as peer pressure, family failings, rehabilitation, personal growth, and societal expectations. Ferris researched her topic well and the authenticity she invests in the novel will draw in both avid and reluctant readers.
