about

From one of America’s leading authorities on juvenile violence comes a groundbreaking investigation of the explosion of violent behavior in girls

With Lost Boys, James Garbarino became our foremost explicator of violent behavior in boys. Now he turns his attention to its increasing incidence in girls. Twenty-five years ago, ten boys were arrested for assault for every one girl. Now that ratio is four-to-one and dropping.

See Jane Hit goes beyond diagnosing the problem to outline a clear-eyed, compassionate solution.
