From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up-The Chorons have created another interesting collection of lists divided into six sections, from "Me, Myself, and I" and "The World Out There" to "Relationships" and "Schools" to "That's Entertainment" and "Facts on File." Packed with wit and wisdom, these lists also contain links to other resources for gathering further information on topics such as eating disorders, substance abuse, and the like. Teens will love picking up the book and reading about "20 of the Best Party Dance Songs of the 1990s," and be informed by the "29 National Organizations That Address the Problems of Youth" and "9 Things You Can Do About Bullies." Filled with trivia, facts, and fun, this book inspires, informs, and entertains. Parents will also enjoy it as a way to keep current on teen trends and issues.Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
