KIRKUS REVIEW

Arnold doesn't come close to providing the general answers to teenage crime we're all looking for, and his wide-range suggestions for prevention--talk to an understanding teacher, set up a school rumor-control center or student court--don't offer much hope. However, there is a likely market among those twelve-to-nineteen-year-olds who are ""most apt to become crime victims"" for his practical tips on securing a home or bike from rip-off artists and, especially, for dealing with a rapist or other attacker--when to run, scream (or yell ""fire""), struggle, throw up or ""release your bowels""; how to execute the eyeball thumb press, testicle pull and several kicks, why girls should walk with a dog or a police whistle. Regrettably, it has its place.
