School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6A look at critical issues in the lives of preteens. The tone is conversational, and each title provides readers with tips and advice on dealing with these experiences. Examples are given and the issues are portrayed as serious without being alarming. Informative as well as objective, Divorce asks readers to consider how their parents may feel. Street Violence examines the role of gangs and looks at life as a gang member. Sprung points out that stress has beneficial as well as harmful aspects. All three titles include hot lines; Stress and Street Violence also list helpful organizations. Full-color photographs and an attractive format make these titles accessible to the intended audience. Useful books to initiate discussion with young people about their concerns and worries.Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC
