Summary

Summary

Many of our teenagers find themselves facing a host of problems they know nothing about. These six new Coping titles will provide teens with information and clarification on some of life's confusing problems.

Everyone agrees that society is becoming more fast paced and stressful every day, especially for teens. With the rise in stress comes a rise in stress-related illness, such as ulcers, and an increased need for resources that inform teens about what they can do to prevent, treat, and deal with these conditions.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-An informative and thorough survey. Monroe discusses different types of ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances and allergies of all types, and heartburn and acid reflux. Fictional scenarios involving teens suffering from different disorders run throughout the book, from the development of symptoms through the process of diagnosis and treatment. Since many of these procedures are quite invasive, the "case histories" help to take some of the fear out of seeking help by offering clear information in an empathetic format. The final three chapters give tips and advice on promoting good digestive health through fitness, a slower-paced approach to eating, and stress management. The author is quite sympathetic toward teens suffering the consequences of trying to deal with the hectic pace of today's world, and offers hope throughout. A more general treatment of digestion can be found in Regina Avraham's The Digestive System (Chelsea, 2000).-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
