Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Debbie Clifford
This series offers itself as the place to which teens can turn when they have questions they cannot ask anyone else. The importance of friendship is stressed in the opening of Friends Forever?, followed by brief discussions on the types of friendships and how they are formed and maintained. Section two details the relationship between best friends-how two friends might be similar or different, their loyalty and tolerance for each other-and the many ways the closest of friends communicate. Other kinds of friends are covered in section three, including cliques, guy friends, the effect of a boyfriend on the relationship between best friends, and the question of where parents fall in the friendship picture. Section four covers further types of friendships-siblings, pets, mentors, parents (again)-and goes on to discuss how things like betrayal, arguments, and separation impact friendships. Walking Tall addresses issues of self-confidence and section one deals with feelings of high and low self-esteem, acceptance of oneself, and body image issues. It includes an exercise to help the reader realize her strengths and use that realization to build self-confidence. Tips to help maintain one's self-assurance within the family and other relationships-whether friends or classmates-are offered in the remaining chapters. The diverse topics covered in the series include shyness, negative moods, relationship with parents, body image, adoption, sex, and divorce. The tone of the books is breezy and light without being flippant. The authors never talk down to the teen reader and successfully make their points without the annoying use of teen slang. Some of the advice seems obvious, and a fewtopics might need to be covered in more depth, but the relatively short books come across as sincere attempts to help teens deal with tough issues and offer suggestions for further reading.

Gr 6-10

Friends explores why it is important to cultivate and maintain close relationships throughout one's life. It guides readers through different types of friendship, focusing on being good to oneself as a key element to being a good friend to others. Walking provides strategies for building confidence and overcoming obstacles to happiness. It delves into the primary ways teens judge themselves and explores self-confidence as it applies to dealing with both family and outsiders. Both books have average-quality cartoons on every page. These translations have some odd sentence structures. Neither volume is groundbreaking, but both provide solid support for navigating adolescence.-Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
