48:120 Health: Making Life Choices by Frances Sizer Webb & Linda Kelly DeBruyne

Textbook for High School Health class.  Covers a broad range of mental and physical health topics including basic biology, nutrition, drugs, relationships, sexuality, and aging.  Does a decent job of keeping neutral and not pushing agendas other than taking care of oneself and getting help if you fall into any problematic area although there were some areas where it was all but pushing the reader to try and get people to stop smoking or doing other harmful behaviors.  Text is a bit outdated in terms of health insurance as it was written just as the ACA was being passed but otherwise, seemed factual and fairly up to date.
