A to Z Problem Solver
Warner and Reit
This little paperback is for all the teens suffering from angsty feelings about their appearance, the opposite sex, parents, and – wait for it – kookiness. Filled with 1 or 2 pages of a discussion about each problem, followed by a few questions for consideration. The basic gist is that you need to be tolerant of others, respect your parents and teachers, etc.
The illustrations are awful and really do nothing for the book. I am not a big fan of the A to Z way to explain stuff. I have never seen this really work unless it is a book about the alphabet. Is it supposed to imply a comprehensive coverage of a subject? For example: Sports A to Z, Computers A to Z, Sanitation Workers A to Z, and finally Police Officers A to Z. Just no.
