Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Dotsy Harland
This cleverly designed series explores selected emotions and offers strategies for handling them. Each volume has a section geared toward boys, with a note on the cover instructing girls to flip the book over, and vice versa. When the volume is flipped, a book for the opposite gender is revealed. The book about conflict focuses on how to avoid it by improving one's communication skills and how to positively resolve unavoidable conflict. The girls' section, written by a female author, offers advice on handling cliques, "mean girls," bullies, and parents. Much of the information is repeated in the boys' section. Interestingly the girls' section includes a chapter on divorce and blended families, a topic not addressed in the boys' section. In contrast, the boys' section, written by a male author, includes the chapter, "Are You a Bully?" which takes a different approach than the discussion in the girls' book. Both sections pop with color photographs and interesting inserts. The volume on stress mirrors the format of the volume on conflict, and includes examples of healthy and unhealthy ways to deal with this emotion. Again much of the information is the same in the girls' and boys' portions of the book, and parts of both sections could be useful to anyone. All four authors have lively writing styles that readers will enjoy. Each volume includes Web sites and hotline telephone numbers that will come in handy for teens in need. Other emotions covered by the series include anger, jealousy, loneliness, and love. Reviewer: Dotsy Harland
