Review by: Robert Kay on Feb. 23, 2014 :
"Snapshots from Home, Stories from Dysfunctional High School" is a well-written book that addresses the everyday problems and situations facing our children today. It is written by a very knowledgeable author who knows what she is writing as she lived most of it. She writes from the heart and from the knowledge she researched and lived. This book should not only help adolescents identify their problems and what to do about them but is also a useful tool for parents and school officials and teacher in helping the teenager. It will show the teenager his problems are not unique and he is not alone. A must read for anyone between the ages of 5 to 95.

“Snapshots from Home, Stories from Dysfunctional High School” is an insightful look at the problems facing many of today’s adolescents. It is a collection of relatable stories and consequences. This is a noble effort on Dunworth’s part to shed light on topics parents have been dealing with for years but had little support for handling. Stories are told from the point of view of the adolescent and the parent. Both groups have issues in this book to be handled and the answers are not always easy. Topics range from suicide to substance abuse and a host of issues in between. She has numerous resources on her web site http://www.streetlighthalo.com/index.html to help embattled families cope with problems ranging from drugs to relationship issues. The collection of stories is believable because they come from the heart. She points out that troubled teens are not bad kids. They just need a little help. Pressures today are different than they were even a few years ago. Some parents may be in the dark about the problems confronting their children. Others may simply not know how to cope. Likewise, teenagers may identify with these stories and seek assistance. Others might feel that they are not alone. It is a great book to help multiple groups of people. This is a must read for any parent or teen.
