Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Each title in this colorful series discusses an issue that either is part of students' lives or is likely affecting someone they know. Presenting multiple sides to current issues, each title distinguishes itself through its dedicated focus on concerns that today's middle and high school students deal with regularly, such as underage drinking and obesity.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
