(Junior Drug Awareness)
Jim Gallagher, Barry R. McCaffrey, Steven L. Jaffe
Reading Level: Ages 9 - 12
History, users, effects of heroin, symptoms of and treatment for addiction, and suggestions
for avoiding drugs are presented with a clear cautionary message that's reinforced with
examples of heroin-related celebrity deaths. An interesting section estimating an average
street dealer's income and showing the expenses (including funerals) of a drug gang is slipped
into the back matter.
