This book is a must read for all that have ever worked with, seen, or even wondered about the problems of inner city families and youth. It is a shocking and masterful depiction of the plight of urban youth. Kotlowitz does not force his judgements on the readers. Rather, he sets out all of the information and lets the reader decipher and digest it. The reader makes and draws the conclusions himself. It exposes a new side of the problems we see everyday. It provides a perspective of inner city youth that has been long overdue. "There Are No Children Here" provides the reader with a whole picture, not just a negative 30 second news bit.
