Accelerated Reader is a program based on the fact that students become more motivated to read if they are tested on the content of the books they have read and are rewarded for correct answers. Students read each book, individually take the test on the computer, and receive gratification when they score well. Schools using the Accelerated Reader program have seen a significant increase in reading among their students.
Teens who need help with life skills may have parents who are all too frequently not around to provide basic instruction. In an ever riskier world, strong values and safety tips are a must. These high/low titles will help.

Gr 7 Up-Like the other titles in the series, this one milks over 50 pages from a topic that could easily be condensed into one concise chapter of a general book on drug abuse. Each chapter begins with an italicized "personal" anecdote relating some aspect of a teenager's experience with the drug and includes stock photographs with obvious captions. The flat, dry, predictable prose relates all of the facts and statistics. The information is adequately organized and clearly explained. The print is large and widely spaced. However, there is no new information here.-Edward Sullivan, New York Public Library
