Publisher Comments:

For many teens today, the carefree days of youth are anything but happy-go-lucky. From alcohol and other drug use to relationship issues and sex to depression and eating disorders, teens are confronted with high-risk pressures and problems--whether experienced personally, through their friends, or with family members. Where can teens turn for help and advice? The experts at KidsPeace, a nonprofit organization serving children and families in crisis, created this lively, interactive book to help teens handle difficult issues and develop confidence in their own abilities and self-worth. Personal stories, fast facts, and self-tests help teens learn how to recognize when a friend or family member is in trouble and find help, to identify their own issues and seek help, and to take care of themselves when feeling overwhelmed by problems of friends or family members. In the process, teens learn one of life's greatest lessons about healing--the importance of connecting with others who understand, care, and can help.

I’VE GOT THIS FRIEND WHO… is a well written handbook for teens to help their peers with issues of alcohol, tobacco, inhalants, drugs, eating disorders, self-injury and suicide, risky behavior and unsafe sex. Each topic has its own chapter that includes up-to-date statistics and resources specific to the topic. The topics were the frequently selected concerns by those kids who logged on to TeenCentral.net.

The book is set up as a discussion among six fictional teens each with different backgrounds, ages, personalities, and points of view. They explore each topic and offer advice on what teens can do to identify and help other teens with these problems, without blame. They also offer suggestions of how to say “NO” without losing face in group settings. Self-esteem issues and peer pressure are also discussed. This book is more geared for those teens who might be exploring, thinking about, or who are in situations concerning these topics.

This is a great book for teens. It has an easy to read format and excellent explanations on each topic. For you parents, this is a must read! You need the background information and support sources it has to make those talks with your teen meaningful. Anyone who works with teens should read this for those same reasons also!
