Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9–Amblard tackles this topic not only from the side of adolescents but also from parents’ point of view. She discusses communication, the need for privacy, school, rules, and the desire for freedom. This book is helpful to those readers seeking to better understand themselves and to those who desire open and honest communication with the people around them. The colorful, stylized illustrations and open format will appeal to younger readers, but the language and situations are more appropriate for young teens.–Denise Moore, O’Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD
