Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
More teens than ever before grapple with this emotionally complex and oftentimes lifelong "ailment" society calls step-relationships. Even the psychologists are stretched to generate helpful resolutions to this ongoing, and often most painful, dilemma. But, in their book, unlike many other self-help books that simply offer Band-Aids to teens, author-psychologist Block and author-psychologist-speaker Bartell offer teens real stuff—"Life in the ER," so their problems can be treated from the inside out. The book's cover, the designated age of eight years and up, the inside font type, and the generous amounts of white space in the text all pander to a book for juveniles; however, the contents—mature and to-the-heart operations—tell another tale. Each of the eight chapters offers a "1-2-3 of might-try-first," or a challenging response to what-if-it-doesn't-work. All sutures are tied off. And soon the reader discovers a pattern—a formula—he can follow. First, he begins with himself and eventually moves on to one of the possible resolutions. Counselors, too, will use and reuse this purple and yellow book with 198 pages—this doctor's little black bag of up-to-date instruments—on teens needing and seeking help and answers to one of America's cruelest epidemics. 2001, Price Stern Slaon, $13.89 and $4.99. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Patricia Timbrook
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Block and Bartell lay it on the line for the burgeoning number of young people facing the uncertainties of stepliving such as what you call your new stepparent or what you do when rules change. Capitalizing on group-therapy techniques, the authors address pressing issues from a can-do perspective, using the voices of several teens and parents who have gone through it all. Providing more than just scenarios and outcomes, the authors go through the decision-making process showing how to face problems or fears and overcome them. Strong on communication, they appeal to teens to open up and talk about their feelings. They provide lawyer-inspired "form letters" with fill-in-the-blank customizations for dealing with parents calmly and rationally. The writing style is relaxed, entertaining, often humorous, yet highly informative. The fonts and graphics embellish the text. A guidebook to return to again and again, this is a must-have for all libraries serving teens.-Lisa Denton, J. S. Russell JHS, Lawrenceville, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
