Get Real: What Kind of World Are You Buying?

Mara Rockliff, Running Press, $10.95 paper (112p) ISBN 978-0-7624-3745-0
This savvy guide encourages teens to be knowledgeable and media-literate consumers. Gently iconoclastic Pop Art–style images spruce up the pages (made from recycled paper), while quizzes and tips urge reflection and action. It's all about making choices: "Try asking for the jeans sewn by a worker earning more than a few cents an hour," Rockliff suggests, along with avoiding fast food, buying local, and being aware of fair trade products. With color photographs documenting the repercussions of waste, Rockliff's frank discussions should have conscientious readers reconsidering their economic actions, while expanding their green vocabulary. Ages 12–up. (July)
