Kick Butts!by Arlene B. Hirschfelder
Every day, more than 3,000 young people smoke their first cigarette. Of those young people, 23 will be murdered, 30 will die in traffic-related accidents, and 750 will die from tobacco-related diseases. These are the grim facts that Hirschfelder lays out in this hard-hitting book. Since the original publisher ceased business a year ago, this important anti-tobacco resource has been lost in a cloud of smoke, but Scarecrow Press is pleased to announce that this immensely popular guide is available again, so that every school, every library, every guidance officeanywhere teens will be able to find itcan obtain a copy. Reasonably priced, heavily illustrated, and packed with information, this award-winning guide covers the history of tobacco use in America from the 1870s to the present, so that young people can understand how such a dangerous habit became so popular. The second half of the book focuses on how individuals can remain tobacco-free and how they can join the larger fight against smoking. Important supplemental stories provide accounts of ways young people have made a difference on local and national levels. An intelligent, well-written and high-impact book, recommended for all libraries, schools or agencies serving young people.
