Gr 6–8—Puberty is challenging enough without the added pressures from bullies, family troubles, drugs, and financial dependency on others. This series prepares teens to tackle these tough issues in a smart, well-informed way. Each volume provides thoroughly detailed background knowledge about its subject so that young people can make better-informed decisions in their lives. The survival strategies and practical tips contained within are quite good and are presented in a practical and appealing manner. Clear infographics are also presented with steps to take for successful management of each topic to reach one's goal. Self-esteem's role in healthy decision-making is stressed, as is being in touch with one's feelings and able to communicate them effectively. With its gentle, reassuring tone, like that of a helpful older sibling or caregiver, this series should not be missed.
VERDICT An essential guide to navigating the challenges of puberty and life beyond.
