Juvie, written by Steve Watkins, is about teenager Sadie Windas who is the star of her basketball team, popular in school, and gets good grades. Sadie also has to go to juvie for 6 months to keep Clara,a partier, a bad mother, and her older siste, out of jail. The novel goes back and forth between the events leading up to juvie and her hardships in it.

Opinion: 

This book is about a teenage girl who has to push past her family issues and the experinces in juvie that she has to face. I especially appreciated it when Watkins wrote moments of pre-juvie experiences within the text.  That fact allowed me to react internally and take a deep breath before being thrown back into the experiences of the juvie system.  I really enjoyed this book and the story line.
