Editorial Reviews

Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, alcohol, dating, sex, pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, eating disorders, cliques, and grief are the main topics covered in this book about growing up and making choices for girls aged ten to fifteen years old. It will be difficult, however, for girls using this book to "make the right choice" individually because many options are never mentioned and because other topics of concern to young people are not addressed. If a young girl chooses to be sexually active, she will read only a mention of condoms and birth control pills in this book and is told to go to the Internet for other options. Although there is some worthwhile content, the format makes it difficult to gather any real meaning. Subjects often switch within chapters, from paragraph to paragraph, or even from sentence to sentence, and frequently they do not fit in with the chapter titles or subheadings. Side boxes with a "situation" and a "good choice" have nothing to do with the content of the chapter in which they are included. Prejudice and race are covered in the chapter on dating. The chapter on sex mostly covers pregnancy. The message of making the right choices is on target as is the attempt to combine a variety of topics, but this book will not be useful to girls seeking answers to specific questions about their life and body, Trade pb.

Gr 6-10-This short, nicely packaged book presents little in the way of new information but is written in an easy-to-read, nonjudgmental style. As if delivered by a favorite aunt or big sister, the material is easily digested and should be readily accepted. Common-sense advice is warmly offered on setting limits, avoiding risky behaviors such as drug use and getting pierced or tattooed, getting along with peers and parents, and developing relationships. Readers will relate to the black-and-white photos of young teens of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Brief, moving poems begin each chapter, and an excellent list of Web sites and helpful national organizations is appended. Lynda Madaras's What's Happening to My Body: A Growing up Guide for Parents and Daughters (Newmarket, 1988) is more comprehensive and is more accessible for older teens. Ellen Kahaner's Everything You Need to Know about Growing up Female (Rosen, 1997) addresses a similar audience but lacks current Web sites and organizational contact information. A welcome addition to most collections.-Susan Riley, Greenburgh Public Library, Elmsford, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
