Booklist - Julia Smith

"STARRED REVIEW! Part of the Informed! series (4 titles), this book comprehensively and convincingly presents the dangers single-use plastics pose to the environment and its animals, including humans. . . .The text utilizes infographics, fact boxes, and photos as it describes the pros and cons of plastic’s resilience, its journey into oceans and the food chain, the trouble with recycling, and environmental activism by young people. The book’s shocking statistics will make readers look at seafood (and salt!) in new ways and compel some to take action." - Booklist

Solid, up-to-date explorations of topical issues." - School Library Journal
