Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-The teenage years can be difficult to navigate, and all the more so for individuals struggling with mental illness. Extremely current in its coverage, this set not only recognizes the importance of such standard topics as eating disorders and suicide but also acknowledges less-covered disorders not often associated with adolescence, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The personal experiences of both average people and celebrities directly and honestly convey each condition in great depth, covering its causes and treatment options. Visuals, which are kept to a minimum, are interspersed throughout and presented primarily as quote boxes and photos, with diagrams, charts, and infographics mixed in as well. Back matter contains two very important resources: a "Recognizing Signs of Trouble" section addressing the common symptoms of each issue and "Organizations To Contact," to assist individuals in finding help or further information. VERDICT An insightful resource for high schoolers coping with mental illness. © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
