In Healthy Living for Teens, young writers show that it’s possible to overcome bad habits and lead healthy lives in a time when substance abuse, junk food, and low self-esteem and self-worth are major social problems.
Inspire teen and preteen readers to take responsibility for and make wiser decisions about their lives with the essays in this book—each written by a teenager. Within these pages, Edwin Mercado, Evelyn Gofman, Antwaun Garcia, and many others describe how they got on the right path toward healthy habits, breaking unhealthy ones like smoking, taking drugs, abusing alcohol, or seeking comfort in foods they know are unhealthy.
