Gr 9 Up
Magee has a reassuring tone to her writing, affirming that a qualified expert is behind this series. Each book presents summaries within the context of real-world situations (questions to ask physicians, how to navigate supermarket aisles, what to order at a restaurant). This approach results in worthy information and delicious recipes, but other than a brief acknowledgement that some of the diseases may manifest in late adolescence, there are no discernible indicators that teens factor much in the target audience. There are no photographs and diagrams, demonstrating that the series may be best recommended to those who are specifically interested in the disease and are looking for workable lifestyle changes to allay their symptoms.
