Product Details


Margaret Clark has never shied away from tackling issues that affect teenagers, and having worked in a drug and alcohol centre, she can write from an honest and knowledgeable perspective. Rave On intertwines the tales of four groups of adolescents, all headed for a rave. The first-timers are brimming with nerves, excitement, fear and reluctance. Those who've been before are set for another night of dancing, dealing, and drug-induced pleasure. Rave On makes easy reading, and the topic will appeal to the intended age group. But I wonder if Clark underestimates the reading ability of her audience, with language that is simplistic and at times lacks flair. It is unfortunate too that the plot hasn't been developed to its full potential. The book climaxes too quickly, and somehow things all work out fine in the end, without any resolution. To her credit though, Clark manages to be informative on the subject without being overbearing. By showing both sides of the drug debate, and exposing the shallowness and exploitation of the scene without coming straight out and judging it, she is able to get her message across. In short, the book is able to examine a heavy issue in a manner that teenagers are sure to respect. Sheila O'Connor is a bookseller at Dymocks Indooropilly. C. 2001 Thorpe-Bowker and contributors
