Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-A useful and thorough overview of allergies, especially as related to teens. Moragne first explains the physical process of an allergic reaction, and then offers a general look at diagnosis and treatment. Subsequent chapters deal with specific types of allergies-allergic rhinitis; skin, food, drug, and insect allergies; and asthma. Each of these chapters is prefaced by a case history of a young person suffering from the particular diagnosis. The final chapter deals with effective ways to live with allergies and the social stigmas that may accompany them. Bullets and black-and-white photos, many of which are of teens, break up the text. The author writes clearly and calmly about potentially life-threatening conditions. A good update on an important topic.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
