From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up–A dry writing style and drab visual presentation will not entice students seeking help in resisting peer pressure to drink, but the information presented is solid, heavy on the facts, and useful for report writers. McClellan looks at the history of alcohol production and consumption, then follows with chapters on alcohol's effects on the human body, legal restrictions, effects of alcohol abuse, underage drinking, and current issues associated with its recreational use. Coverage is thorough, with details diligently documented as to source. Several cases of teens whose drinking led to death or disablement, as well as the story of one young woman who turned her life around, are included. Largely nondescript, black-and-white stock photos occasionally break up the text. McClellan presents the facts in a straightforward, textbook manner that indicates the troublesome nature of the subject without sensationalizing it. Margaret O. Hyde and John F. Setaro's Alcohol 101: An Overview for Teens (21st Century, 1999) is far more readable and compassionately practical for teens dealing with the pressure to drink, even offering guidance on determining whether someone has developed a drinking problem.–Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS
