Spencer Johnson, M.D., adapts his bestselling adult title for a teenage audience, in Who Moved My Cheese? for Teens. Here a teenage student presents the parable (identical to that featured in the adult version) in the high school cafeteria: two mice and two ""Littlepeople"" (Hem and Haw) who search for cheese in a maze and react to change in distinctly different ways (""The Cheese stands for whatever's important to you like getting on a team, having a boyfriend or girlfriend, getting into college...""). In a concluding discussion, the friends apply the parable to specific situations in their lives. The author's message about the importance of anticipating, accepting and using change to improve one's life can surely benefit this audience. (Oct.)
