Don’t be fooled, and don’t
be native about alcohol and drugs. Even if you’ve made
the choice not to use, you’ll have to defend your position
to keep it that way. In this powerful handbook filled with real
stories from real teens:
plain facts about alcohol and drugs and their effects on mind and
body. "Read this book…it’ll
be all you ever need to respect the power of chemicals. If you’re
hoping not to use but wondering if 'the crowd' will think you’re
a nerd, you’ll learn how to say no and be convincing. If you’re
already using, this book will help you break free—and help you stay
clean and sober." — Brad
