Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lesley Moore Vossen
This dual book is part of a series of "Flip-It-Over Guides to Teen Emotions that explores the emotions of today's teenagers and the best ways to deal with the emotions and the situations that cause them. Some of the feelings of loneliness are ones brought about by being bullied, or being shy, or trying to make friends after a move. But the book also treats the intense emotions of grief after the death of someone and depression that does not go away. Many of the solutions are common sense ones such as using physical exercise, sharing hobbies or volunteering and, of course, if the problems of loneliness persist, talking to a counselor or trusted adult. The point of the two books together in one is that young people can read the appropriate side but then flip the book over to get an understanding of how the other gender deals with the same issues and emotions. The book is designed with numerous photos, sidebars and illustrations geared to teenage sensibilities. There's nothing very innovative about the book but given the number of teenagers trying to deal with all of the emotions and difficulties of the adolescent years, the more books that can offer some advice the better. The section (in the Girls' Guide) about whether the Internet makes people lonelier or more connected and the Internet safety tips seems particularly useful. Reviewer: Lesley Moore Vossen
