With over a million copies sold worldwide and translated into 22 languages, the Health Freak books have been a global publishing phenomenon, bringing both fun and vital health education to teenagers the world over.
Teenage Health Freak: Relationships has the popular question-and-answer format of the Health Freak series (Sex, Drugs, Bullying), based on genuine questions emailed by kids to the authors' award-winning health advice website (teenagehealthfreak.org). Frank, down-to-earth answers are given by the authors, both of whom are doctors specializing in teenage health issues.
Relationships are difficult to get right but are central to all our social lives. No relationships - whether with peers, parents or other people - are easy, but everybody needs them. As well as learning from their own experiences, teenagers will be greatly reassured to read about the experiences of others, and to find that they are not alone - that others have the same feelings, concerns and worries, and many have found solutions to the same kind of problems. 'Relationships' form a central part of the UK National Curriculum (in the guidelines for PSHE and Citizenship at KS2 and KS3).
Readership: Relevant to all young people (core age 11+) as relationships are central to their lives. For parents who want to help their children with their relationships. For teachers responsible for teaching citizenship and PHSE. For school librarians and youth workers and others concerned with giving advice to young people.
