About this title

Synopsis:

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.

These titles for reluctant readers highlight the possible consequences of drug use, including the dangers of addiction, damage to mind and body, and increased likelihood of violent behavior.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-10--Draimin conveys essential information in a clear, readable manner. She introduces readers to the human face of AIDS, in the form of two teenagers who have made a big mistake, and then explains frankly and in detail how HIV is and is not transmitted. In discussing therapy, the author stresses the importance of dealing with the underlying problems that led to drug use, and appeals for decency and compassion in responding to those with this disease. Nicotine warns that these substances are harmful and addictive even though they are legally sold and describes the chemical dependency that too often results from abuse of these substances. Appropriate standards for daily consumption and a list of possible substitutes are provided. Detracting from what is otherwise a strong presentation are fictionalized incidents with stilted, preachy dialogue and some sloppy grammar. Santamaria considers drug production, distribution, and use a complex problem in an increasingly inter-related world. She acknowledges the few alternative options that impoverished populations have for economic survival. Sherry presents a frightening list of Inhalants that Americans are reported to be using--glue, paint thinner, nail-polish remover, hair spray, gasoline, and charcoal starter. Some of the language in this book is more technical that in the other titles. All of these books have large print that will appeal to reluctant readers and posed photos with generic captions.
