Gr 5-9-Two books that focus on the serious risks associated with abusing chemical substances. Each title opens with a personal narrative about a young person whose life was dramatically affected by substance abuse. Additional real-life stories dramatize the dangers described in each presentation. The authors examine the societal pressures that lead to the particular type of abuse and go on to describe how the chemicals work on the human body. Warning signs, treatment programs, and prevention strategies are all addressed. Discussion questions are appended to each volume, making the books useful in a classroom or group situation. Full-color photographs and charts add visual splash to the concise texts. These well-documented overviews update titles such as Clifford J.
