Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–Many teens find their high school years to be trying, angst ridden, and downright rotten. Culled from the responses of some 2000 high and post-high school students, this title gives voice to young people who have lived through the experience and who offer both affirming and cautionary tales as they attempted to navigate the uncertain seas of friendship, depression, academic achievement, drugs, and sexuality. Of all the observations contained in this unusual book, there has to be at least one that will resonate with readers. No one commentary is more than a page. In addition, there are advice sections and an entire listing of organizations that can provide help with problems. There is no question that this book will enhance most YA collections.–Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ

Format: Paperback
I really loved this book. It had a lot of information that most teens do not know. Some teens think they can only talk to their friends about personal things that are bothering them. Students think teachers are just against them and just don't care about them. I know this book relates to me. Some of the stories told by the students, I could relate to. I felt the exact same way they did. I recommend this book to any teen who is having trouble in life and needs help dealing with it or anyone interested in reading a very interesting and educational book.

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of Dr. Bluestein's work and this did not dissapoint me. This book is real...real kids, real problems, and blessedly real hope. I'm sorry it wasn't around when I was in high school, but I know it will help someone now. For too many kids, high school is a nightmare they live with their whole lives. This book lets them know they're not alone - a solution all by itself. But, as usual, Dr. Bluestein packs more goodies. If you're a fan, you'll already have this book. If you're not, you soon will be if you read it.

Format: Paperback
This book offers wonderful information, resources, and advice for people going through the trials and tribulations of high school. It deals with just about all the issues high schoolers deal with: relationships, friendship, fitting in, suicide, narcotics, academics, you name it. It's written in a way that makes the reader fell like s/he can confide in the authors because it takes on a very understanding, nonjudgmental, and loving tone (crucial). Every high school should carry a copy in its library.

Format: Paperback
There is nothing like this book anywhere...for helping, confirming, educating, tickling, prodding. Not only does this book clue me in as a parent, it is a great resource for kids trying to get through high school the best they can, or failing to. I bought 3, one for each of my nieces and nephew. They have all commented on how "hip" and "with it" it is. And helpful, which they casually slide into the conversation.
