Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Rayna Patton
Addiction is a carefully researched, well-written, and persuasive study of the nature of addiction and the ways in which it can destroy lives. Addiction is here defined broadly as "an overwhelming urge to use a substance or do an activity, regardless of the consequences." The authors are careful to point out that some behaviors are normal in moderation but become devastating when they are habitual or compulsive. Healthy families are compared with those that live with addicted members. McLaughlin and Hazouri mainly focus on children living with addicted family members; they include biographical sketches of some of these children. Addicted teenagers are discussed in one of the six chapters. The authors also present opposing theories on the causes of addiction, as well as information on types of addictions, including alcohol, drugs, gambling, and obsessive relationships. Directing information at young people who are living in dysfunctional families perhaps not recognizing a family member's addiction as the root cause, makes this slender book unusual. The authors help readers identify the problem then give suggestions for getting help. Index. Source Notes. Further Reading. VOYA Codes: 5Q 3P M J S (Hard to imagine it being any better written, Will appeal with pushing, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).

Gr 7 UpThese well-written titles offer up-to-date information on serious health problems and sound advice on how to deal with them. Jussim presents a great deal of material in this overview that includes a summary history of AIDS and HIV infection. The many tables of statistics help readers to understand the scope of this contemporary plague. An important feature of the text is a realistic view of the newer treatments, including protease inhibitors. The story of the now-legendary Ryan White plus profiles of many other afflicted young people make for sad, but gripping reading. A chapter devoted to HIV prevention identifies the risks attached to all kinds of sexual contact and offers precise information on how to avoid disease. Readers are warned of the dangers of intravenous drug use and the sharing of needles. Including discussions of both substance abuse and behavioral disorders, Addiction lists causes, characteristics, and results of uncontrolled, compulsive activities. The focus is on the family unit and identification of the roles played by various members in addictive homes vs. their healthier counterparts. Special emphasis is given to places teenage addicts can find help and support at school and in the community. While neither book is illustrated, special sections are often highlighted or set apart, breaking up the texts. These accurate, honest, and readable titles are sound choices for YAs.Sue A.
