Booklist Review

*Starred Review* The Teen Life series offers informative, well-designed, and thoughtful books about some of the most pressing issues on kids' minds. Skin Cancer gets readers' attention with a close-up cover shot of a cancer, and inside, the book discusses what skin cancer is, how it is diagnosed, who is at risk, and methods of prevention. Each volume contains sections of Ten Great Questions to Ask as well as pages of myths versus facts. Easy to read with a fresh design, these books will help and inform a wide audience.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist
