Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Teenager Daisy Garcia seems to have it all. She is popular and her boyfriend, Simon March is handsome, attentive and able to provide help with her special math assignment. Daisy also comes up with the idea of presenting a school talent show to raise money for a new wheelchair for the husband of admired chemistry teacher, Mrs. Kim. Like all youngsters in today's world, electronic communication is an important part of Daisy's life. She and best friend Norah Thomas are always in touch. At a pool party, Simon uses his cell phone to take several photos of Daisy in a red bikini. Later he asks her to send him a topless photo. Without thinking of the possible consequences, Daisy complies. When Simon insists that Daisy not perform her hula- hoop routine for the talent show, a nasty breakup occurs. Daisy finds herself in a most difficult situation when Simon sends the topless photo to classmates. She ends up being suspended from school and having to deal with all the problems this causes with her parents as well as her peers. This realistic and well- written novel, one in the series "Surviving Southside" accurately and authentically depicts issues facing teens. If other volumes in the series are in demand, add this to the acquisition list. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
VOYA - Teri S. Lesesne
The Surviving Southside series features high-interest, low-reading level urban fiction. Students who struggle with text will appreciate the short chapters and fast-paced action in each. The covers, featuring a diversity of characters, will also provide appeal. The Fight tackles the issue of establishing a GSA at a school when school board policy seems to have a negative impact on the LGBT bullying taking place. A handful of students attempt to address this situation by changing policy following the suicides of several gay youth in the school district. Overexposed centers on texting when a couple fights and the guy texts a racy picture of his ex-girlfriend to the rest of the school. Who is responsible in this situation? How can the teen return to the school where everyone looks at her askance? Sports injuries take center stage in Full Impact as one student takes a few too many blows to the head on the football field. Each book, though, contains at least one error that a more careful editing job might have fixed prior to publication. Dialogue in one book is attributed to the wrong character. In another, a word missing from a sentence will be confusing. Because of the truncated length, do not look for an in-depth examination of any issues. Have some suggestions for other YA novels addressing these issues ready, however, for readers who will gobble up these titles. (Surviving Southside) Reviewer: Teri S. Lesesne
