Published by Franklin Watts (Talking About series), 2004
Aimed at a younger age group who are probably not yet facing the choice of whether to drink alcohol, this book clearly explains the reasons why people drink, the problems drinking to excess cause, how one can say no and mean it, the problems caused to those who live with or are friends with alcoholics, and the importance of talking to someone you trust if you are affected. Some graphic pictures add to the effectiveness of the message. A list of further reading, information about organisations, websites, and an index will make the book useful in schools.
Age: 8+
