Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-10

Colorful and compact, with attractive covers and an appealing layout reminiscent of teen magazines, these books feature numerous accounts from real teens dealing with a variety of issues. The stories, while not overly preachy, are brief and generally upbeat. I Did It deals with mainly negative actions (crime, pregnancy, dropping out, gossiping, body art), but then awkwardly switches gears toward some positive acts including saving lives, resisting drugs, and doing charity work. Sisters and Brothers flows well, covering the effects of birth order, the importance of siblings, and issues involved with step, half, foster, and adopted siblings, and being an only child. Each book has excellent black-and-white photographs of a diverse array of teens. Good fits for family and health classes.-Marcia Kochel, Olson Middle School, Bloomington, MN
