Annotation: Difficult problems deserve careful consideration. This series focuses on problems young people might encounter in their daily lives. Each title acknowledges the pressure young people are under from their peers and the media and gives guidance and support in a lively, sympathetic, and positive way. The approach follows a choice and consequences sequence. Real case studies are presented along with quotes and personal accounts in the sidebars. Advice on how to handle situations is given in e-mails from friends and older siblings as well as from experts on problem pages.

These books devoted to three common addictive substances aren't scolds: the authors show compassion for affected teens, especially in sections describing social and cultural pressures that foster addictions. Unfortunately, the layouts, which bombard the reader with sidebars, keyword definitions, graphics, thought and dialogue balloons, and photos of adolescents ostensibly grappling with addiction, seem like a bad trip. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Teen Issues titles: [cf2]Alcohol[cf1], [cf2]Tobacco[cf1], and [cf2]Drugs[cf1].] Copyright 2005 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
