Praise For…


Lisa Crandall, formerly at Capital Area District Library, Holt, MI -Starred Review School Library Journal
"The author’s in-your-face approach makes her points while still engaging readers–she is never didactic or overbearing. She encourages teens to make a difference in their world by making small changes to things they do already–buying fair-trade chocolate or saving up for an organic cotton T-shirt. The pop-art illustrations are clever and illustrative of many points. The impressive bibliography provides lists of documentaries, websites, books, articles, and other sources to help teens find out how their favorite products came to be (and came to be so cheap). Learning more about how these products are made just might make some teens think twice about their buying habits"

"This book is loaded with lots great information (some of which is disturbing) and includes links to enable the reader to research topics more. It also empowers teens by showing ways that teens can and have made a difference in their communities."
