Booklist Review

Gr. 4^-7. In each of the books in the Drug Dangers series, the author begins by putting a real face on the problem. In Inhalant Drug Dangers, for example, we meet Ian, who is addicted to inhaling fabric protector. Discussions of other real-life experiences follow, with death--the addict's or an innocent bystander's--frequently the end of the story. The remainder of each book discusses the physiological effects of the drug, getting help, and giving help by fighting the problem through advocacy. Illustrations, while not as grim as those in many drug books, don't add much information. The series is uneven (the title on diet pills, which is not recommended, is substantially more lurid and less informative), but these two titles offer enough information and enough cautionary material to be worth purchasing. --Susan Dove Lempke
