From Booklist:

This paperback from the Plugged In series discusses how to recognize depression in teens and what to do about it. The text hits just the right note, informal yet informative, using quotes and case studies representing typical young people who are dealing with mood swings, eating disorders, and problems at school or at home. The book also demystifies therapy and advises readers on how to seek help, particularly if they (or their friends) have suicidal thoughts. A couple of brief activities offer fill-in-the-blank spaces, but getting the author's advice to a young person who needs it far outweighs the damage writing in the book might cause. Cartoonlike drawings add visual appeal. An appendix lists hotlines for concerns such as abuse, mental health, and suicide prevention, and a number of mental health organizations with their addresses, phone numbers, and Web sites. Carolyn Phelan

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up-Ups & Downs is a remarkably complete resource written in a clear, down-to-earth style that is accessible to reluctant readers. There are examples of how to differentiate between a "bad day" and chronic depression, and how to get help if necessary. When Your Parents Split Up contains many stories of how teens dealt with their parents' divorces. There is also information about custody law, single parents, and stepfamilies. The quizzes, firsthand accounts, and cartoons in these practical series entries will appeal to teen readers. Both titles include helpful hot lines.
