Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
The Titans have a winning football season thanks to some of their key players: Norval, Arnie and Kadeem. These high school seniors search the stands for college scouts with full ride scholarships, helping them fulfill dreams of playing for the NFL. Arnie gets tackled really hard more than once but it's going to take more than that to stop him from finishing the game. The Titans celebrate their win at Kadeems. Arnie complains that he has a headache, but then he'd been hit pretty hard. It's not until a few more tackles at the next game when he becomes quick to anger, falls behind in schoolwork and more tired than usual. Coach Green asks Norval and Kadeem to watch for some signs of a possible concussion, but then that just seems like ratting on their friend. Ultimately whose place is it to push Arnie into a medical checkup? Norval wants to help his friend; he's seeing some signs of symptoms pointing towards multiple concussions. He searches the web and even passes on this info to Arnie but it only angers him. Arnie even thinks that Norval is just saying this because he's jealous of his football abilities. We're left to ask, how bad can a concussion be? What lifelong changes can occur if a player has had multiple concussions? With the headlines full of questions regarding how damaging it is for today's football playing youth, especially high school football, it brings up the question of what kind of potential lifelong damage are we putting our youth through. Concussions result in brain swelling. Multiple concussions affect this swelling and healing time. Is a game more important than keeping them safe and unharmed? Full Impact brings forth some great questions that have been hidden on the sidelines for far too long. After all, it's just a game. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan
VOYA - Teri S. Lesesne
The Surviving Southside series features high-interest, low-reading level urban fiction. Students who struggle with text will appreciate the short chapters and fast-paced action in each. The covers, featuring a diversity of characters, will also provide appeal. The Fight tackles the issue of establishing a GSA at a school when school board policy seems to have a negative impact on the LGBT bullying taking place. A handful of students attempt to address this situation by changing policy following the suicides of several gay youth in the school district. Overexposed centers on texting when a couple fights and the guy texts a racy picture of his ex-girlfriend to the rest of the school. Who is responsible in this situation? How can the teen return to the school where everyone looks at her askance? Sports injuries take center stage in Full Impact as one student takes a few too many blows to the head on the football field. Each book, though, contains at least one error that a more careful editing job might have fixed prior to publication. Dialogue in one book is attributed to the wrong character. In another, a word missing from a sentence will be confusing. Because of the truncated length, do not look for an in-depth examination of any issues. Have some suggestions for other YA novels addressing these issues ready, however, for readers who will gobble up these titles. (Surviving Southside) Reviewer: Teri S. Lesesne

    Norval is one of several Southside High football players hoping

    Norval is one of several Southside High football players hoping to attract the attention of the college scouts. If the scouts are interested, the scholarships that follow will guarantee college educations that would otherwise be almost impossible for the teens and their families to finance.


    When Norval's friend and fellow player Arnie begins acting weird both on the field and off, he finds himself in an awkward position. Coach wants Norval to "spy" on Arnie and report any suspect behavior. The constant headaches and missed plays have Coach worried that Arnie is suffering the side effects of a concussion. But Norval doesn't believe it is his responsibility to rat out his friend.


    As Arnie's symptoms and behavior worsen, Norval struggles with his concern about his friend and interfering with Arnie's dream of not only a college scholarship, but also the chance at a pro-football career.


    In this fast-paced read, author Suzanne Weyn explores the growing medical concerns about head injuries and the long-term consequences for young football players. Teen readers will be entertained and also educated if they choose to read FULL IMPACT.
