Booklist - 10/01/2019 In only 48 pages, and with a large, easy-to-read typeface, this entry in the new A True Book: Why It Matters series (6 titles) does a fine job of explaining how the court works, what kinds of cases it takes, and how justices are chosen and what they do. This also has a look at some topics not often covered (e.g., whether there should be cameras in the court) and brings relevance to readers by highlighting several cases that impacted young people, including those on censorship or students with disabilities. To its credit, the book also makes a point of noting that, of the court's 114 justices, 108 have been white men. The open format with plenty of color photographs makes this an excellent choice for students and may pick up a few browsers. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
