Readers of this work by Dr. Cummings and Dr. Leschied will find that it is not only incredibly timely but also invaluable. The book directs our attention to the fact that violence in the lives of girls is unique to the experience of girls and that it behooves us to stop comparing them to boys. As well, that there are known risk factors that are unique to these girls and that interventions need to be gender specific and geared towards the criminogenic needs of the individual in order for treatment to be effective.
