We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

These books devoted to three common addictive substances aren't scolds: the authors show compassion for affected teens, especially in sections describing social and cultural pressures that foster addictions. Unfortunately, the layouts, which bombard the reader with sidebars, keyword definitions, graphics, thought and dialogue balloons, and photos of adolescents ostensibly grappling with addiction, seem like a bad trip. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Teen Issues titles: [cf2]Alcohol[cf1], [cf2]Tobacco[cf1], and [cf2]Drugs[cf1].] Copyright 2005 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
