Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Mary Arnold
Twenty years after this title won the Christopher Award for "affirming the highest values of the human spirit," the authors have updated it to focus more on "skills for living" and psychological survival. Packed full of information on everything from the history of psychology and studies of human behavior, to ways in which adolescents can understand their own personalities and what influences their beliefs and behaviors, the "I'm okay, you're okay" theme stresses the development of self-esteem. The readable format and conversational tone of this book make it easy for readers to assimilate some of the more scholarly information on subjects like mental illness and the stages of adolescence. Stories personalize the stages of growth and cartoon illustrations lighten the text and reinforce the idea of the wide range of "normality" in this formative period. Some teens may really be interested in traveling inward and understanding what makes them tick-and as tomorrow's market audience for self-help books, this will show them how to make sense of the psychobabble. An up-to-date bibliography also includes other books that will interest teens. Index. Illus. Biblio. VOYA Codes: 3Q 2P M J S (Readable without serious defects, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
