by David Sheff, Nic Sheff

High: Everything You Want to Know about Drugs, Alcohol and Addiction Synopsis

All parents should have this book on hand, and use it to open important dialogues with their kids. Arm them with knowledge. --Ellen Hopkins, best-selling author of the Crank trilogy. Just Say Know! With drug education for children more important than ever, this nonfiction book draws on the experiences of the New York Times best-selling father/son team, and inspiration behind the film Beautiful Boy, David and Nic Sheff to provide all the information teens need to know about drugs, alcohol, and addiction. From David Sheff, author of Beautiful Boy (2008), and Nic Sheff, author of Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines (2008), comes the ultimate resource for learning about the realities of drugs and alcohol for middle grade readers. This book tells it as it is, with testimonials from peers who have been there and families who have lived through the addiction of a loved one, along with the cold, hard facts about what drugs and alcohol do to our bodies. From how to navigate peer pressure to outlets for stress to the potential consequences of experimenting, Nic and David Sheff lay out the facts so that middle grade readers can educate themselves.
