Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—These hi/lo books provide the basics on challenges that today's adolescents may face. All contain quotes from tweens and teens, quizzes, and short glossaries and resource guides. Neatly divided into easy-to-read sections, chapters cover such topics as "Why They Do It" (Behind the Screen), "Why Do I Look Like This? (Reflections), "Becoming Your Best Self" (In Crowd), and "What the Heck Is Happening?" (Sex Smarts). The books' design is dull and the stock photographs are merely decorative (though the photograph of facial herpes in Sex Smarts is jolting). The texts' staid tone treats each of the topics in an appropriately serious manner. Reluctant readers will find these titles helpful for basic report information, and the books will be useful to guidance and health instructors as starting points for discussions.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
