Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kelly Czarnecki
Vignettes and quotes from teens are the essence of these books, pulling young readers in with dramatic accounts of how others made certain choices or experienced situations and learned from them in hopes that others can as well. "I dared my cousin to jump off this cliff. Instead, I did it, and I broke my ankle," admitted a thirteen-year-old about impulsive activities in I Did It Without Thinking. A fourteen-year-old of mixed race says in Totally Tolerant, "I'm not going to try to act like something that I'm not. I wasn't raised that way," responding to the expectation that she be like other black youth in her school. Statistics, quizzes, historical photos that illustrate prejudice in the 1950s and even recent news stories such as the Jena Six are peppered throughout for a professional perspective. The young reader is also motivated to think critically and use other tools such as journaling or volunteering to create change in their own lives. Other series books in this include The Skin You're In: Staying Healthy Inside and Out and Sisters and Brothers: The Ultimate Guide to Understanding your Siblings and Yourself. Overall these resources will attract younger students for personal and academic reading, but their brevity will probably limit their use as supplemental material when writing about the topic for assignments. Plenty of photos accompany each book, and words are defined not only in a glossary but used clearly in context as well, providing a great introduction to the topic for the beginning reader.
