Annually, a quarter of a million children enter the foster care system in the United States because of abuse and neglect. The novel Triumph opens with a young mother suffocating her infant daughter, Katie, to gain attention due to Munchausen syndrome by proxy. Katiea€™s journey, through her rescue and placement into foster care, opens the door into the cloistered world of juvenile court justicea€”a system where juveniles are locked away in jail cells, sent to foster homes, and placed in therapeutic residential centersa€”all from public view. The writer, a superior court judge, now retired, provides the reader with the portal through his experience in the system.
