Product description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9 In an intelligent, compassion ate book, Hermes has targeted the puz zle and tragedy of suicide. Addressed to young people, this ``state of the art'' covers much ground and is highly read able. It incorporates findings of recent research and utilizes in-depth inter views with survivors, friends and par ents of victims, and therapists. The in terviews are probing, but sensitive to the privacy of subjects. The great myths of teen suicidethat it doesn't happen to ``ordinary, normal'' kids and that those who talk about it never do itare refuted. Those interviewed be lieve that most would-be suicides want to be stopped, and they counsel inter vention if a peer seems at risk``Better to overreact than to underreact.'' Prac tical suggestions are offered: what to say, what not to say, where to get help, what kinds of help. Hermes' message is one of hope, and should be reassuring to teenage readers. Libby K. White, Schenectady County Pub . Lib . , N.Y.
