From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up–This series title contains six entries across the political spectrum and extensive information on how to write a cause-and-effect essay. About half of the book is devoted to the topic of illegal immigration, while the other half is devoted to writing instruction, examples, and exercises. Photographs and political cartoons give the viewpoints visual appeal, while colorful highlighting and sidebars enhance the writing instruction. Appendixes deal with research methods, source citation, and organizations to contact for more information. Unfortunately, with only six viewpoint articles, the coverage of the topic is not comprehensive. This will clearly be a useful book in a school setting, but its value lies in its how-to aspect rather than as a thorough overview of a timely topic.–Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH
