Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Cynthia L. Blinn
McMillan's Teen Smoking: Understanding the Risk, part of Enslow's Issues in Focus series, examines smoking in the United States from the European settlers' cultivation of "Virginia leaf tobacco," through tobacco's growth as an American industry, to today when smoking is known as "an equal opportunity killer." The organization and presentation of material is interesting and informative without being preachy. Smokers' rights and the tobacco industry's philanthropic backing of the arts accompany information about the dangers of sidestream smoke or ETS (environmental tobacco smoke), and creative marketing and promotion the industry uses to compensate for restrictions placed upon its advertisements. Is nicotine addictive? Both sides are heard, although the author appears to believe it is. The information presented here could spark interesting discussions in social studies classes, or be used persuasively in health classes, but the index is insufficient to make this a good research text. Even so, teens should have this title available on their library shelves, for the information it includes about health effects, smoking prevention, treatment options, and how to quit. For the YAs considering starting to smoke, this reader-friendly text could help stall such action. Wilkinson's book on body art, from Rosen's Coping With series, will make a good resource for teens considering body piercing, tattooing, or branding. She includes information on history and fashion, but-more importantly-about health issues and long-term considerations (Will you change? What will your next love be named?). The material is well organized and directly presented, stating facts backed by research, and allowing the reader to make personal choices. Respectful in tone, this text will help anyone considering body art to make an informed decision. The index is handy when seeking specific facts. The text offers comprehensive factual information for an art form teens may consider only among friends or with information from trendy magazines. Issues addressed include artists' professional organizations, the client's comfort zone, equipment, placement, cost, guidelines for selection, the process, risks, and care for new art. Colorful, eye-catching photos include celebrities whose life changes have caused them to have body art altered. Emphasizing body art's permanency, Wilkinson urges readers not to rely upon the possibility of removal when deciding. If librarians must choose, buy Wilkinson's work on body art; it won't likely duplicate titles already on the shelf. Glossary. Index. Photos. Further Reading. Resource Listing. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles: Teen Smoking: Understanding the Risk and Coping with the Dangers of Tattooing, Body Piercing, and Branding. VOYA Codes: 5Q 2P M J S (Hard to imagine it being any better written, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, 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).
Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
Wilkinson provides a comprehensive overview of Body Art which includes information on the process of getting and removing tattoos, piercing and branding, the history of Body Art, reasons why people choose Body Art, and inherent dangers. Some of the text is not for the squeamish, particularly where the branding ("kiss of fire") process is described and where removal of Body Art is discussed. The tone is conversational and the text is nonjudgmental; however the author stresses the permanence of Body Art and the wisdom of carefully considering it before taking the plunge. Unfortunately, there are several typographical errors and the book could have benefited from tighter editing. In addition, the use of first names only to illustrate many examples takes away some of the text's authenticity. Part of the "Coping" series.
School Library Journal
Gr 10 UpA clearly written look at body-marking arts. An introductory section about the history of skin marking is followed by chapters on tattooing, body piercing, and branding that contain historical overviews, descriptions of the processes, health risks, care following the procedures, and personal-experience stories. The dangers are explained and strongly emphasized throughout the book, and readers are cautioned against making decisions in haste, at too early an age, or otherwise ill-advisedly. Factors to consider in choosing an artist are explained along with information about pop-culture and counter-culture associations with body decoration. A final chapter deals with the removal of unwanted body art, which details the difficulty, pain, and expense involved. Wilkinson provides objective information, but discusses the need to inform parents prior to making a body-modification choice. A centerfold section contains several full-color photos.Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
