Gr 8-12—Text is accurate and thorough, although a bit repetitive. The repetition may help lower level readers comprehend what can be difficult subject matter. This book has sections of primary source quotes that are clearly labeled. There are also clearly labeled sections called Facts and Illustrations that contain graphs, charts, and pictures to help clarify information. It also contains a timeline, related organizations, and additional resources for further research. This is a great resource for middle and high school health projects. The topic of cutting and self-injury is definitely one that has been getting more press, especially in fiction, so it is good to have an informational text about the topic.—Anne Dame, Einstein Middle School
