Vegetarianism by Arthur Gillard

Each title in this colorful series discusses an issue that either is part of students' lives or is likely affecting someone they know. Presenting multiple sides to current issues, each title distinguishes itself through its dedicated focus on concerns that today's middle and high school students deal with regularly, such as underage drinking and obesity. Moreover, Issues That Concern You recognizes the intimate relationship between its subject and reader as it weaves together different points of view. Backmatter offers facts and "self-help" style advice to young people grappling with the issues.
