Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Affecting Lives: Drugs and Addiction from School Library Journal on April 1, 2021

Cover: Marijuana: Affecting Lives

This series tells the stories of people with addictions and how they recover. These books are not focused on statistics or the science behind the drugs. Instead, they serve as examples for readers about how people start using drugs, become addicted, and find the help to quit. The people in the stories may resist treatment at first, but their desire to regain control of their lives leads them to therapy. These hi-lo books will serve as examples for younger teens about how addiction affects your life. This series is not intended for scientific, legal, or statistical information, but rather for social and emotional support for young teens who are exposed to drugs. ­VERDICT A solid purchase for teens who are considering drugs, already doing drugs, or looking for support to help a loved one with an addiction.
