Reviews

"The design allows readers to pick and choose areas of interest. Each chapter ends with a journal idea and a list of topics previously addressed. VERDICT Readers looking for help for themselves or a friend will find that this slim volume is chock-full of easy-to-implement ideas for those living with depression."--School Library Journal

"In their balanced approach, Toner and Freeland off information in a supportive, noncondescending way and treat depression like the serious issue it is, all while maintaining an ultimately positive outlook."--Booklist

"Well written, easily understood, and jargon-free. The authors have appealed directly to the teen in a manner that empowers rather than stigmatizes."--James M. Foley, DEd, Licensed Psychologist; author of Danny and the Blue Cloud: Coping With Childhood Depression
