Life Lists for Teens: Tips, Steps, Hints and How-tos for Growing up...
by Pamela Espelund
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Covering various aspects of teen concerns, this book provides suggestions, tips, and hot-line numbers for readers seeking advice and referral information. It includes such topics as "Health and Wellness," "Getting Along," and "Planning Ahead." Under "School and Learning," lists cover keys to school success, do's and don'ts for classroom discussions, tips on taking notes, benefits of doing homework, Web sites for homework help, ways to change "the social scene at school," and more. "Staying Safe" suggests "12 Things Not to Do When Someone Bullies You" and "20 Ways to Tell If a Relationship Is Unhealthy," and addresses issues such as pregnancy, running away, suicide, and abuse. The few fill-in-the-blanks pages provide photocopy permission. Sandra and Harry Choron's The Book of Lists for Teens (Houghton, 2002) is similar but also touches on lighter topics. While both titles offer advice on what to do in difficult situations and planning for the future, Espeland's well-organized book has lots of useful information and teen appeal.-Nicole M.
