Gr 10 Up—This extremely important series teaches teens how to begin managing their financial lives. Topics include setting a budget, investing in the stock market, how to monitor your credit, and planning for college. The authors do an excellent job recognizing the intelligence of their audience and relating the topics to teens' current lifestyles. The text is also up to date, complete with information on avoiding scams masquerading as financial advice on TikTok. Sprinkled among the text are interviews with financial experts and teens who are learning the basics on finance. However, while the information is vital, the text and content are dry. Few teens will select this out of personal interest. The back matter includes extensive source notes, a resource list, and an index. VERDICT This series offers a wealth of information. Recommended for school libraries.
