‘… This is a really excellent stand-alone resource which?considers rights and responsibilities around substance misuse in credible social?contexts. The characters are believable, the use of the mobile phone clever and?the issues are addressed in a mature comprehensive manner, exploring and?challenging common myths and attitudes. It dares not to overstate, accepting?that drugs may well not hurt you or turn you into an addict after one try; the?description of physical dependence of heroin includes references to nicotine and?alcohol – an especially important message particularly for this age?group … Highly recommended for use in schools, youth clubs and indeed in the?home.’?
