From home, to school, to juvenile detention center, and back again. Follow the lives of fifty Latina girls living forty miles outside of Los Angeles, California, as they are inadvertently caught up in the school-to-prison pipeline. Their experiences in the connected programs between "El Valle" Juvenile Detention Center and "Legacy" Community School reveal the accelerated fusion of California schools and institutions of confinement. The girls participate in well-intentioned wraparound services designed to provide them with support at home, at school, and in the detention center. But these services may more closely resemble the phenomenon of wraparound incarceration, in which students, despite leaving the actual detention center, cannot escape the surveillance of formal detention, and are thereby slowly pushed away from traditional schooling and a productive life course.

"Very informative and engaging... To the reader, Flores can seem as if he is closely tied to his participants, and as if he wants his readers to feel that same connection." * Journal of Youth and Adolescence * "Caught Up offers an interesting and provocative discussion of primarily Latina youth who are justice involved and caught in the school-to-prison pipeline. ... extremely well researched, organized, and thorough." * International Criminal Justice Review * "This worthy work deserves a caring examination as it helps us to understand the consequences of the frightening accelerated fusion between education and the criminal justice system for Latina girls. It was written with passion and academic accuracy." * Border Criminologies * "By centering the compelling testimonials of 30 young Latinas, Flores details the multiple impacts and varied forms of gendered, socioeconomic, and racialized violence the participants encounter at home, school, in intimate relationships, and while in detention. Especially significant are the tolls that trauma and inequality take and the ways the participants are caught up in the California juvenile justice system, despite its intended focus on rehabilitation. The book ends with concrete experiences from Latinas who have been able to leave the criminal justice system and those who have not-highlighting Flores's main finding that increased contact with criminal justice agencies reduces the possibilities of escaping from them." * CHOICE *
