Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-- Paul's teenage sister, Tina, is addicted to drugs. He has seen her personality change and has refused her offer of pills. He feels guilty but tells their mother. Later Tina is picked up by the police for drug use in the park and is sent to a rehabilitation center. Because of Tina, Paul's new friend Jose doesn't want to play with him and there is no money to send him to soccer camp, but in the end his parents, his soccer coach, and Jose turn out to be true friends. Muted realistic watercolors with black ink outlines complement the text, capturing the feelings and dilemmas of the characters. This is bibliotherapy rather than literature, and is best used as part of a drug education/awareness program. --Renee Blumenkrantz, Davis Community Library, Bethesda, MD
