Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up?Breezy, upbeat, conversational writing enlivens this book. The information is divided into three broad areas. The first section presents definitions of various kinds of vegetarianism and reasons for giving up meat. Living with the decision; defending it to family, friends, and others; and surviving in a primarily meat-eating world is the focus of the second part. The concluding section contains nutrition facts, recipes, and meal-planning suggestions. Paragraphs are short with bulleted lists and heavy use of bold type to attract readers' attention. Young people are quoted, increasing the book's appeal for its targeted audience. Attractive woodcuts appear at the beginning of each chapter. This title provides more information and has a lighter style than Charles Salter's The Vegetarian Teen (Millbrook, 1991) or Lila Perl's Eating the Vegetarian Way (Morrow, 1980; o.p.).?Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX

From Booklist

Gr. 7-12. Much more than a guide to modifying diet, this book takes pains to explain why vegetarianism is beneficial both to the individual and to the planet. Drawing on numerous resources, Krizmanic thoroughly investigates various reasons people choose not to eat meat--health benefits, ethical concerns, and environmental factors, among them--and by listing organizations and newsletters of interest, she encourages readers to become actively involved in their lifestyle choice. The first part of the book is a revealing rationale for vegetarianism (statistics aren't specifically documented, though chapter references are supplied); the second tackles how to explain your switch to your parents and friends and how to manage when eating away from home; the third is purely practical, discussing nutrition, introducing some health foods, and providing a selection of recipes. An encouraging, consciousness-raising overview that may help change the undecided or the simply curious into the fully committed. References and a glossary are appended.

This book about vegetarianism is the most informative and easy to understand book for teens and with teens imput. I enjoyed this book emensly because I'm a teen myself and after reading this book with all it's info on nutrition, how to deal with parents, friends and how it helps the world. The author does a lot to get REAL teen's opinon on why they became vegetarians. The book was so good I read it in 3 hours (my record). I would highly recommend this book to teens or adults wanting to explore the options and information on becoming a vegetarian and why you can help the world by not eating meat. I now am a vegetarian it is fun and kinda special to tell people 'yes I'm a vegetarian I don't eat meat ' read the book you'll be very interested . Happy reading and happy meatless meals.

This is a great book for teen vegetarians, or teens thinking about becoming vegetarians. This book has 13 chapters, each full of information.
1. What is a vegetarian, anyways?- This gives straight forward answers, and describes different kinds of vegetarians and why people are vegetarians.
2.For The Planet- About how being a vegetarian benifits the planet.
3. For The Animals- You guessed it, all about how being a vegetarian helps animals.
4. For Your Health- About how being veggie helps you. This part also dispels many myths not-vegetarians have about a vegetarian diet.
5.Making The Switch- About going from meat-eater to vegetarian.
6.What will your parents say?- I think this is one of the best chapters, as it gives lots of information about what parents may be thinking and how to convince them without being rebelious.
7. What will your fiends say?- Yet another concern to teens, this chapter deals with dealing with friends.
8. Sticky Situations- This is another great chapter for teens, that answers all those nagging questions. What about at friends houses? How about when I'm traveling?
9. Surviving at School- All about cafeteria blues, science class diesection, and ways to make changes in your school.
10. Some Nutrition Basics- Another great chapter. All the nutrition you need to know, written in a clear way for teens to understand.
11. Fabulous Vegetarian Foods- All about vegetarian foods to try.
12. The Makings Of A Meal- About what to include in yummy and healthy meals.
13. Some Recipies To Get You Started- I'll be honest, I haven't tried any of the recipies yet, but they sound great. They are written in a ay great for beggining cooks.

Format: Paperback
When I was becoming vegetarian in 6th grade, I read a lot of books, but none delt with it from the teenagers viewpoint. They discussed what to shop for and how to plan large elaborate meals,and lots of other things that were of no use to me at that time.
That's this books strong point. It is written clearly for teenagers, dealing with the issues they need to know about. It covers nutrition and the likes wonderfly, in a way that can be easily understood, but also deals with uniquely teenage concerns such as how to discuss this with your parents and how to deal with going out with friends, school meals, etc. In addition, it covers the basic reasons for become a vegetarian, and the different types of vegetarians there are. It's a great resource for any teenage considering vegetarianism.

Format: Paperback
I became a vegetarian almost ten years ago, and this book was released soon after I made the switch. It could not have come at a better time. I originally found it at the library, but I checked it out so many times, I knew I needed my own copy. The book really set me on a great path, and helped me deal with a number of different situations.
I became a vegetarian while I was still living at my parents' house (where every meal revolved around meat) They initially dismissed my new vegetarianism as a "phase". I was so happy to prove them wrong! This book really helped me gain confidence, and gave me the will-power and drive to stick with the vegetarian lifestyle.

"A Teen's Guide to Going Vegetarian" was great--with everything you need to know at all. In the beginning, it told me why which influenced me to become a vegetarian--especially the part about the animals. It gave me help about telling my family and friends, and sicne now I'm a vegetarian, it's helps me know about nutrition and hidden indgriedients. Five stars is not an exarggeration!

This book helped me make the change from carnivore to herbivore! I have been a veggie for three years, and this book helped me through the first months of my switch and made things so easy. It even has sections on how to deal with meat eating friends, family, etc. It is so helpful. This book is a must for anyone looking into the vegetarian lifestyle!
