Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of a series of books based on the Gallup Youth Survey, the oldest survey on teens in the country, it identifies "alcohol as a major factor in the negative issues facing our youth," such as highway deaths and accidents, poor school performance, depression and suicide. It takes a hard look at alcohol and the effect it has on the human body. The book includes a brief history of alcohol consumption, peer pressure, alcohol influenced behavior, and recent campaigns by high schools and colleges to end underage drinking, the book provides hard facts on the dangerous trend of drinking among teenagers. Although young people have always been tempted by alcohol, today's youth seem to have more money and unsupervised free time leading to riskier behaviors. More importantly, recent studies show that teens younger than 15 who drink are more likely to develop alcohol problems. This is an excellent book for parents to share with their teens and for classroom use, as well. Color photos, charts and graphs and resources for further information enhance its appeal. A glossary and index are also included. 2004, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 10 up.
