Gr 6-10 These serviceable volumes offer orderly looks at their topics. The authors describe the disorders, causes (if known), symptoms, treatments, and the effects on an individual, a family, and society at large. Detailed back matter includes source notes, key people and advocacy groups, and related organizations. The texts are factual without being dry, easy to read, and colorful. One drawback is that the illustrations, although aesthetically pleasing, tend to be a little simplistic. Also, readers will need to read the fine print at the bottom of the sections labeled “Primary Source Quotes” to understand the series’ usage of the term. The quotations are really just a gathering of sound bites and text blurbs gleaned from doctors treating these illnesses and the patients and/or families of the afflicted. Still, these titles are solid entries for libraries needing to update their collections in these areas.
