Rare Juvie Hardback with Pictorial Dust Jacket
It was mostly the pulp paperback market that took on the subject of juvenile delinquency. They liked scandalous stuff. Of course, there were mainstream juvie movies too like "Blackboard Jungle" and "Rebel Without a Cause." This book's a rare example of a hardcover with pictorial dust jacket taking on the subject of juvenile delinquency.
It's always more fun to talk about "bad girls" than it is "bad boys." Our society just loves to get off on the deeds of "bad girls," and then condemn them the morning after.
