From David Sheff, author of “Beautiful Boy,” and Nic Sheff, author of “Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines,” comes the ultimate resource for learning about the realities of drugs and alcohol for middle grade readers. “High” tells it as it is, with testimonials from peers who have been there and families who have lived through the addiction of a loved one.. From how to navigate peer pressure to potential consequences for experimenting, Nic and David Sheff lay out the facts so that young readers can educate themselves.
