Kirk Seufert: The Real Truth About Trouble:  A Little Can Turn Into A Lot
ISBN 0-9676417-0-5 [sources incl. amazon]
This book is an effective tool for keeping kids out of trouble. The author, 
who is an attorney focusing on juvenile cases, designed the book for kids. It 
uses real-life stories from real kids, to tell the real truth about drugs, 
sex, violence, guns, confrontations, crime and truancy.  It explains how many 
STDs, drug addictions, felony charges, gun-shot wounds, and unwanted 
pregnancies can never be fixed -- by an attorney or anyone else.  What's best 
is that the attorney writes the book in a language and from a perspective 
kids can relate to. So much so that the Juvenile Court in my city is using 
the book as a means of prevention and rehabilitation. Given the serious 
potential trouble all our kids face today, I personally believe all kids 
could benefit from this book.       ---Marie Andrews
