Synopsis

Real Life Issues: Self-harm by Dee Pilgrim, Emma Caprez

Real Life Issues are self-help guides offering information and advice on a range of key issues that matter to teenagers. This book defines the issue of self-harm, probes the reader's experience of it and offers ways of understanding and coping with it. Written in a down-to-earth style, this guide aims to demystify an area that teenagers find hard to talk about, providing honest facts, practical advice, inspirational quotes, positive reassurance, and guidance towards specialist help.The book highlights case studies of people who have experienced and come through the issue, containing an honest account of what it's like deal with. It also includes interesting statistics showing the number of people who are or who have been affected by it; an examination of the impact self-harm might have on education, home and work life; a short quiz to explore why someone might be self-harming and to examine the reader's desires and expectations. Most importantly the guide provides practical tips on coping and how to stay in control, advice and guidance on how to seek and where to go to for further help, and related issues it might be worth exploring.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
