Rebels in Society: The Perils of Adolescence is a true journey into the world of adolescents gone bad. This book reveals the inner workings of adolescents who have been caught up in pathology and the juvenile justice system. The first part of the book highlights juvenile sex offenders, juvenile serial killers, anti social youth, and the ones that become a statistic in the juvenile justice system. The overview of the justice system is explained in a way that an educator or parent can understand the legal process. This complex process of many steps and layers has been simplified for the reader in a way that one can navigate the process. This book also has given a personal face to many of the youths who are caught in the juvenile justice prison system.

Marcel Lebrun is a world-renowned expert in the field of emotional behavior disorders. He has published several books on student depression, school shooters, keeping kids safe, and sexual orientation issues. His 30 years plus experience in this field has led to many conference presentations worldwide.
Marcel Lebrun's latest book provides a panoramic view of juvenile violence in the U.S. and beyond-violence in which children can be victims, perpetrators, or both. Unsparing in its detail, the issues that Dr. Lebrun explores will disturb every reader who is concerned with the safety and well-being of the youngest and most vulnerable members of our society. More than mere description, this book is a call to action, offering recommendations and reminding us that how we treat our children is a key to the future of our nation. -- George Tuthill, vice president of graduate studies, Plymouth State University Dr. Lebrun's book, Rebels in Society: Perils of Adolescence, is a timely and much-needed resource for teachers, administrators, and parents on the issues relative to children at risk in society today. The book articulates in a clear and concise way the importance of knowing the problems that so many adolescents face within their homes and environments. I strongly urge anyone who works with children today, has a child of their own, or knows of someone who is raising a child to read this book. -- Irene Cucina, professor and director of the Office of Teacher Certification, Plymouth State University
