Book Review: Zoo Station (a memoir)- the story of Christiane F.
Over 30 years since it’s original publication as Christiane F., Zoo Station is still as real and gripping as the days it was published, and still as relevant to teens. While our government is still waging a “war on drugs” with public service announcements aimed at parents about how “denial is a drug” and you “need to learn how to talk to your kids? Let us show you how”, illicit drug use among teens has not been decreasing- patterns have been changing, and are constantly in flux with marijuana and prescription drugs more popular (http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/high-school-youth-trends).
