VOYA - Patti Sylvester Spencer
Iraq, Afghanistan, global warming . . . the world broils with conflict and paradoxes, but often teenage worlds shake and shatter for reasons much closer to home. These two hardbound additions to a digital periodical series seek to address localized turmoil in adolescent lives. Adding to volumes on depression and competition come these two based on resilience and coping with divorce. Both slim books, Bouncing Back and Surviving Divorce, are visually engaging and realistic. Black-and-white photographs, pop-up-style graphics, and textual variety create reader friendliness. Voices of real teens coping in problematic circumstances, documented statistics, and a glossary add to the potential that young readers might actually understand situational complexities and learn ways to better cope. Non-condescending tips, emotion charts, checklists, and suggestions contribute effectiveness. Whether exploring the ways that goal setting, volunteering, and hobbies (physical and mental) can help people manage stress or examining how courts deal with custody issues, the volumes are straightforward and down-to-earth. Although neither breaks into new territory, common-sense approaches are packaged with young teens in mind. The divorce volume seems more substantive, if only because issues involved are more concrete. The series, especially useful in health and wellness courses, is a welcome path toward emotional maturity and self-reflection.
