"This thoughtful, lucidly written work presents an evenhanded discussion of five major issues. The best organized introduction for the student needing report or debate material. The abundantly footnoted text quotes many primary sources and draws upon scientific examples to illuminate the questions. Informative...black-and-white photographs accompany the text. The appended list of organizations and the generally current list of books for further reading are both annotated."
-- School Library Journal (December 2000) (School Library Journal 20001201)
"Many of the articles were written by professional journalists, but some are more personal. Titles should find a place and school libraries."
-- School Library Journal (June 2002) (School Library Journal 20020601)
"There are plenty of dynamic opinions from professionals with firsthand knowledge of the topic."

Gr. 6-12. Like many such series volumes, this compilation of essays, in the Contemporary Issue Companion series, brings together contributors--some known, some surprising or obscure--to reflect on a timely topic, with plenty of data to support their arguments. In this book, the editor goes a step further by including an entire chapter of personal essays from people who have actually struggled with teen alcoholism or seen effects on a friend or family member. This chapter alone is worth the entire volume. The voices, from bitter to wise, resonate with honesty. The rest of the book, which includes charts and sometimes staggering facts, will help in standard research, but it's the powerful first-person perspectives that will make teens stop and think.
