More than seventy-five teens from across the country were interviewed on a range of topics and issues: parents, friends, sports, clothes, school violence and peer pressure. With the passion and frustration expressed by teens in their narratives, as well as in their artwork and poetry, this book is a unique combination of original teen contributions and effective stress- and anger-management techniques from a mental-health professional. Most important, it was designed expressly for teens. Hot Stones and Funny Bones is divided in three sections. "Telling It Like It Is" highlights problems and issues that nearly every teen faces in the middle- and high-school years, expressed in their own voices. The second section, "The Best Way to Cope with Stress", offers a host of coping skills and relaxation techniques for teens to utilize, ranging from ways to boost self-esteem and effective anger-management skills, to meditation and creative expression. The third section, "Final Comments From Teens", reveals opinions, lessons learned and advice to parents and teenagers about the struggles and triumphs of teen years. In addition, every chapter includes "Thoughts, Reflections and Action Plans", where teens can process what they've learned, using the information to make healthy behavioral changes. With all the stress and gamut of emotions in our hectic-and at times chaotic-world, this book will be a hit with teens trying to make sense of it all and stay sane at the same time.

In this lively and practical guide, notable teen experts and practitioners explain why service to teens in this age range is so important, and how you can enhance your collection and services to accommodate and win over this important group. Topics range from understanding older teen needs and creating a vital teen space to building and promoting a winning collection. Brimming with valuable insights, fresh ideas, as well as nuts and bolts directions, this is a must-read for all librarians who work with older teens. While libraries have traditionally offered diverse materials, services, and programs for children and even young teens based on their developmental needs, older teens (aged 16-19) are too often left out, with the excuse that older teens aren't interested. On the threshold of adulthood, these young people have immense informational needs that libraries are in a wonderful position to supply: information about colleges, about work, about relationships, and leisure activities. In this lively and practical guide, notable teen experts and stellar practitioners Sheila Anderson, Amy Alessio, Patrick Jones, Robin Lupa, and Kristine Mahood explain why service to teens in this age range is so important, and how you can enhance your collection and services to accommodate and win over this important group. Topics range from understanding older teen needs and creating a vital teen space to building and promoting a winning collection. Brimming with valuable insights, fresh ideas, as well as nuts-and-bolts directions, this is a must-read for all librarians who work with older teens.

Everyone has dealth with at least one of the issues listed in this book at some point in his/her lifetime.
