Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Julia Bowersox
This series is an all-in-one resource for teens' research needs in an easy to read, magazine-like layout style. Each book contains a primary source quote section, and a key people and advocacy group section, as well as a chronology, and a related organizations section. Having such a well-balanced amount of various research outlets in one book is a great way to introduce students to research basics. The illustrations, maps, charts and graphs will help foster and reinforce comprehension. Also, the user-friendly style is visually appealing while reinforcing comprehension. Each section contains colorful pull-quotes, which helps the reader gain interest in the reading. Reluctant readers will appreciate the compact size, easy-to-read content and pop culture references. This research series contains good overall coverage of each topic as the current, past, present, and future of issues are discussed, as well as controversial issues with each topic. In Online Social Networking, privacy issues, sexting, addiction to social networking, and bullying and regulation vs. freedom of speech are discussed. This series is well rounded in the issues it discusses and visually appealing to its readers. It would be a great addition for school and public libraries.
