"This series has added new books ever since it began in 2006.  It presents contemporary topics such as AIDS, organic foods, and online social networking in a format that encourages research and further study.  Complex issues are well-researched, well-written, and supported by photographs and charts as necessary."--Book of Note 2011, Tri State Young Adult Review Group
