Reviews

Gr 6 Up-Scowen offers an in-depth look at what depression is and how it affects young people. She differentiates between normal mood shifts and signs of serious trouble. Bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and suicidal feelings are also discussed. An extensive chapter on treatment options includes information on medications. Parents will want to use this book as a starting point for more detailed discussion. There is a lot of material here, such as the use of medication and different forms of therapy as treatment options (especially the mention of electroconvulsive therapy) that young people might not understand or could interpret incorrectly without the input of a knowledgeable adult. Cartoon illustrations lighten up an extremely serious topic.-Kristen M. Todd, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Parents will want to use this book as a starting point for more detailed discussion.--Kristen M. Todd"School Library Journal" (02/01/2007) It's depressing to think that kids need a book on depression, but there are plenty of statistics to show that it's so. Whether you're concerned about your child, or you child is concerned about a friend, this accessible little volume may be just the thing to get a conversation going. A chatty, informative, up-to-date resource on a disturbing subject... Teens won't find a quick fix here, just realistic advice -- especially about seeking help.--Hazel Rochman"Booklist" (09/15/2006) Well-written, easy to read and use, and quite informative... It is highly recommended for school and public libraries.--Karen Jensen"VOYA" (12/01/2006) An in-depth look at what depression is and how it affects young people... Parents will want to use this book as a starting point for more detailed discussion.--Kristen M. Todd"School Library Journal" (02/01/2007)
