Gr. 7-12. Much more than a guide to modifying diet, this book takes pains to explain why vegetarianism is beneficial both to the individual and to the planet. Drawing on numerous resources, Krizmanic thoroughly investigates various reasons people choose not to eat meat--health benefits, ethical concerns, and environmental factors, among them--and by listing organizations and newsletters of interest, she encourages readers to become actively involved in their lifestyle choice. The first part of the book is a revealing rationale for vegetarianism (statistics aren't specifically documented, though chapter references are supplied); the second tackles how to explain your switch to your parents and friends and how to manage when eating away from home; the third is purely practical, discussing nutrition, introducing some health foods, and providing a selection of recipes. An encouraging, consciousness-raising overview that may help change the undecided or the simply curious into the fully committed. References and a glossary are appended.

Grade 9 Up?Breezy, upbeat, conversational writing enlivens this book. The information is divided into three broad areas. The first section presents definitions of various kinds of vegetarianism and reasons for giving up meat. Living with the decision; defending it to family, friends, and others; and surviving in a primarily meat-eating world is the focus of the second part. The concluding section contains nutrition facts, recipes, and meal-planning suggestions. Paragraphs are short with bulleted lists and heavy use of bold type to attract readers' attention. Young people are quoted, increasing the book's appeal for its targeted audience. Attractive woodcuts appear at the beginning of each chapter. This title provides more information and has a lighter style than Charles Salter's The Vegetarian Teen (Millbrook, 1991) or Lila Perl's Eating the Vegetarian Way (Morrow, 1980; o.p.).?Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
