Rubin's book is a well-written examination of the issues and conflicts that are faced by the juvenile courts on a daily basis. It takes readers behind the scenes for a real-world analysis of the juvenile courts.

The opening chapter depicts an exchange that might occur between judge, child, parents, lawyers, probation officials, and social workers during a typical day. The bulk of the book contains chapters on five distinguished working juvenile judges. The style of each is studied and described. A final chapter simulates a meeting between the five judges to discuss policy.
