Description

Join Book Passage and the Kentfield Schools PTA for a book talk by the bestselling father/son team David and Nic Sheff.

With drug education for children more important than ever, High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction draws on the experiences of the New York Times bestselling father/son team of David and Nic Sheff to provide all the information teens and tweens need to know about drugs, alcohol, and addiction.

From David Sheff, author of Beautiful Boy (2008), and Nic Sheff, author of Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines (2008), comes the ultimate resource for learning about the realities of drugs and alcohol for middle grade readers.

This book 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, along with the cold, hard facts about what drugs and alcohol do to our bodies. From how to navigate peer pressure to outlets for stress to the potential consequences for experimenting, Nic and David Sheff lay out the facts so that middle grade readers can educate themselves.

David Sheff is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times bestselling memoir Beautiful Boy. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Playboy, Wired, and many other publications. His ongoing research and reporting on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time magazine's list of the World's Most Influential People. Sheff and his family live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Nic Sheff is the author of Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines (2008), We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction (2011), and the young adult novel Schizo (2014). He is a contributor to TheFix.com, and recently wrote an episode of the Netflix hit show 13 Reasons Why. He lives in Beverly Hills.
