Reviews
"This book should be not only in the library of every middle and high school, but also in the hands of every student and in health education classes. I cannot praise the substantial (300 pages) book enough!"
--Science Books & Films Online, a critical review journal by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

"A comprehensive handbook... answering questions every teenager would want to know. Includes a panel of teens offering insight, insuring that this updated version of the classic Teenage Body Book is just as meaningful to today's teens. Recommended."
--Ann M. Warner, Eastern Washington Book Review Council

"The easily digestible chapters address issues of emotions, healthy eating, exercise, stress, mind-expanding substances and getting help when you need it. With helpful illustrations and charts, McCoy and Wibbelsman present the truth about adolescence and all the changes it brings, without sugarcoating the message or talking down to its audience."
--Rod Lott, Oklahoma Gazette
