About the Author:

Sandy Donovan has written more than two dozen books for kids and teens. She also writes for newspapers, magazines, and Websites. Her book The Channel Tunnel was a Minnesota Book Award finalist.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-This subset in the "USA Today Teen Wise Guides" series provides suggestions and strategies to help young adults stay safe or improve life skills. Both authors use friendly, conversational styles, resulting in narratives that are straightforward and readable, with key facts and tips highlighted so readers can easily find the main points. Reprints of articles and graphs from the pages of USA Today reinforce main ideas or provide additional information. Health and Safety offer standard tips readily available in many other formats and preexisting sets. The topics fall into the "for-your-own-good" category, making teen interest unlikely. Communication and Volunteering cover topics not always addressed in classes and could be useful investments. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
