Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8- A self-help book with solid, practical advice. The text is divided into three sections or, as they are called here, phases: "Why do I feel alone?," "How to stop feeling lonely," and "Finding solitude." Each section has a series of subsections with quick discussions of mini-topics designed to hold readers' attention while imparting the necessary information. For the most part, the presentation is clear, understandable, and immediate. However, the format occasionally breaks down and children are left with a muddied understanding. Does the author really mean to tell them that they need to dress like the crowd in order to fit in? The cartoon drawings are colorfully bright and match the text in its attempt to keep the tone light. For those individuals who approach their problems with an analytical mindset, this could be the perfect book to help conquer the natural bumps in the road that most young adolescents face.-Wendy Smith-D'Arezzo, Loyola College, Baltimore, MD
