Christy's Chance: It's Your Choice!
DeVault, Christine; Strong, Bryan
This interactive book on marijuana is part of a series of three interactive books on tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana; three informational books containing parallel content; and three teacher guides designed to give students in grades five through eight practice in using the information and skills presented in the books. The goal of this book and the accompanying informational book and teacher guide is to prevent marijuana use by preadolescents. In the beginning of the story, students learn about the main characters. After that, the story depends on the reader, who makes decisions about using marijuana for the main character. The readers' choices will take them to different parts of the book where they will discover what happened as a result of their decisions. Readers continue to make choices until they reach the end of the book. When one story is finished, readers can go back and read the story again, this time making different choices and causing different consequences. (NB)
