Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two new entries in the Sunscreen paperback series address drugs and depression: Drugs Explained: The Real Deal on Alcohol, Pot, Ecstasy, and More by Pierre Mezinski with Melissa Daly and Francoise Taud, illus. by Redge; and When Life Stinks: How to Deal with Your Bad Moods, Blues, and Depression by Michel Piquemal with Melissa Daly, illus. by Olivier Tossan. As with the previous titles, the volumes present accessible text, often against pastel backgrounds to break up the pages, along with inviting full-page and spot illustrations. The narratives present both sides to often provocative issues (such as whether or not tolegalize drugs), encouraging informed debate. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
KLIATT
Focusing on specific and well-defined topics such as becoming independent from parents, dealing with the topic of sex in conversations with peers, and identifying when mood swings are normal (however distressing), and addressing them in a paragraph or two on a page shared with colorful cartoon imagery, gives junior high readers an accessible place in which to search for the vocabulary and concepts they may need in order to talk or read about issues more substantively. The advice offered for dealing with parents and teachers is particularly prescient, although the assumption here is that the reader's parents are more likely to be protective than uninvolved. Layout, as well as the once-over-lightly tone, of this small book make it suited to browsing rather than research, even at an elementary level. The bibliography refers entirely to French titles, but the text is as oriented to contemporary US middle class kids as to any other demographic. While the cartoons are sweet, the preponderance of white faces may limit the book's appeal in some collections. There are extracts from teen writings included from about halfway through the book to its end. While not an essential purchase, this effort may be just the starting point some kids need when looking for explanations of their emotional turmoil. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2004, Abrams, Amulet, Sunscreen, 112p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 12 to 15.
—Francisca Goldsmith
School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-This reassuring book will help readers to distinguish between age-appropriate feelings and more serious mood disturbances. Individual differences are emphasized as they contribute to emotional reactions and the ability to cope in challenging situations. Normal mood swings, striving for independence, physical changes, and frustration with parents and teachers are some of the topics that are explored. Recommendations for finding professional help when necessary are offered. The pleasing use of blocks of color and cartoon illustrations enhances the text. Web resources, hotlines, and an excellent index are included; the bibliography has only French titles. This book is similar in scope to Kathy McCoy and Charles Wibbelsman's Life Happens (Penguin, 1996). It offers brief coverage of specific challenges of growing up, treated more seriously than in Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese? for Teens (Penguin, 2002). Using the common-sense suggestions provided, readers will more successfully navigate the turmoil of adolescence.-Sharon A. Neal, Alvernia College, Reading, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
