Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
Flip-it-over books contain two books in one; one is directed at teen girls and the other is directed at teen boys. In this book on jealousy, the authors begin by introducing the difference between jealousy and envy. Each book includes sections on identifying envious and jealous feelings, dealing with sibling rivalry, working through jealous feelings in dating relationships and handling emotions in a positive way. Each book, whether geared toward girls or boys, addresses physical and emotional abuse in dating relationships and gives concrete ways to identify abuse, as well as tips on how to get help if one is in such a relationship. Each book also contains realistic photographs representing teens of many racial backgrounds; in addition any given chapter includes fun facts, quotes from famous people, lists of tips and results of scientific studies, all offset using colored backgrounds and fonts to visually stimulate the reader. Chapter notes, a glossary, resources both print and Internet and an index finish off the text of each book. The material is presented in a way that will hold the attention of a teen reader; this is a relatively quick read and it contains useful information. The presentation of a boys' side and a girls' side may intrigue some teens, leading them to pick up the book to see what it is all about. Reviewer: Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
