Read full description of the books:



It’s been thirty-five years since I volunteered at a youth detention center. During that year, I listened to troubled girls talk about their moms, boyfriends, hopes, fears, and frustrations. When I met retired corrections officer Gordon Cruse at a recent conference, I knew I had to buy his book. Cruse worked at a detention center in British Columbia for twenty-six years, which is a long time for anyone in this field.

Juvie: Inside Canada’s Youth Jails is a compilation of stories, anecdotes, thoughts, analysis, and letters from those years. In many ways, this is a very personal book, as former residents and interviewees reflect on what works and doesn’t work in BC’s correction system. Although Cruse tries to obtain a broad perspective, readers are given the opinion of only one foster parent, lawyer, judge, and senior corrections officer. Also, there’s too much unnecessary detail about things like an interviewee’s appearance. Opinions were fairly generalized, and I would have liked more depth.

The best aspects of the book are Cruse’s descriptions of life inside Juvie, as well as the kids’ poignant and often painful letters. The message that incarceration is not a good place to be is loud and clear. Cruse briefly discusses newer alternatives now being offered through things like restorative justice programs to give kids a better chance at rehabilitation, accountability, and useful skill learning. This is good because it’s quite evident that Juvie is still the stressful, negative, explosive place it was thirty-five years ago.
