From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up–Youth Communication is a journalism program that serves the most vulnerable teens in society, including those in foster care. The best student essays are culled from their publications and compiled into slim anthologies. The books' production value is low, but the homemade quality might make them more accessible, and the combination of honesty and writing skill is a triumph. Keeping it Real and Sticks and Stones are good additions to collections that already own literature on these topics written by experts. Most of the teen authors write about abuse, foster care, or mental illness, which narrows the scope of the themes, but teens who have not experienced these situations will find enough universality here to connect. Although My Secret Addiction has the highest literary quality of the three, it is not recommended for unrestricted use. Teens could benefit from reading selected chapters with a counselor in a guided therapeutic setting, but it could be harmful to read 16 stories in a row about teens routinely cutting themselves and successfully hiding their secret for years. Chapters at the end of the book include therapists' wisdom, but the advice is less tangible than the vivid descriptions of teens getting a “high” from cutting. Youth Communication does a great service by allowing teens to speak for themselves, but sometimes, a stronger adult presence on the page is needed.Jess deCourcy Hinds, Bard High School Early College Queens, Long Island City, NY
