Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-Up Henderson's second collection is well balanced and diverse, and young adults searching for an audition piece are sure to find something that suits them. The author is adept at examining both sides of a wide variety of situations. For example, "S Is for Special" explores what it's like to have a disabled sibling, while "Handicapable" is told from the point of view of a person with CP. "Johnny Reb" and "Billy Yank" relate opposite experiences of the Civil War. There are subjects slight and serious, contemporary and historical, so that the gamut of human emotions is represented. In addition to dramatic exercises, this volume could also be used in the context of debating or journal writing. A useful addition for both school and general collections. -Ronni Krasnow, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
