From Booklist:

Gr. 7-12. This "Goth" primer offers a good overview of a little-understood contemporary subculture and goes far to debunk negative stereotypes. In clear language that doesn't condescend, the chapters cover the origins of the movement, its fashion and music preferences, religious interests, tendencies to bend traditional gender roles, and other hallmarks of the Goth lifestyle, with boxed lists of fashion and music essentials. Although the author reminds readers that no two Goths are alike, she herself generalizes in places, particularly when describing the "goth personality" ("moody and introspective . . . usually very sensitive and compassionate."). Still, this is an informative and reliable guide, and it has increased significance in the wake of the Columbine tragedy, as the teenage gunmen's preference for Goth music and fashion has led to concern about the movement in general. Students interested in the subculture as well as adults struggling to understand their children's attraction to the movement will find this useful. Glossary and extensive resources appended.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up-This series entry examines the look, lifestyle, and philosophy and tries to help mainstream readers understand what it means to be Goth. Clearly and simply written, individual chapters focus on the origins of the subculture, its fashions, music, literature, and films. Acker states repeatedly that there is no one type of Goth. "Although most Goths are nonviolent, the media and the actions of a few fringe characters have led many people to mistakenly believe that all Goths are vampires, killers, racists, or gun-wielding maniacs." Particularly in the aftermath of the Columbine massacre, many people are suspicious and wary of any young people who dress in black and seem pale and brooding. Black-and-white photographs and information tables help round out the presentation. This book fills a need in most libraries.-Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL
