Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Melissa Thacker
In an effort to show the reality of life with a baby, three new books in the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Library tackle the subject of teen pregnancy. In Listen Up!, seven young women tell their stories. Each girl discusses similar issues: the reality of child care, the loss of adolescence, the lack of time for themselves, and regret over getting pregnant. They had a fantasy of what motherhood would be like and say that reality is a far cry from that dream. The girls are from a variety of backgrounds, and each is fortunate to be involved with a program designed to help teen parents. Unfortunately, the fathers are no longer involved in neither these mothers' nor their children's lives. The information presented here is easy to read and valuable; however, after the first three entries they all sound formulaic. The narratives are supposed to be the girls' own voices, yet they all say pretty much the same thing in the same order. Reality Check takes the same format as Listen Up! Five teenage fathers talk about how they got into their situations and how they are trying to be a part of their children's lives. The boys each discuss the responsibility of raising a child, the importance of emotional and monetary support, and their resolve to be there for their children. They also talk about how their predicament has changed their plans for the future. Each realizes the importance of an education and how hard it will be to attain one with their newfound obligations. Although the entries are less formulaic than those in Listen Up!, the narratives are uneven. In the first chapter "Kenyetta" is rambling with often conflicting statements. On the other hand, the narrative by "John" is positively eloquent. I found problems with illustrations in both books, but I have seen only galley proofs; these problems might be corrected in the final editions. Included are photographs of only five of the seven girls, four out of the five boys, and some but not all of the children. Photographs illustrating points made in the narrative do not necessarily show the individual who made the statement. A minor point perhaps, but the photographs could further reinforce the reality of the narratives. Maintaining the format of the above titles, A Question of Timing features ten men of various ages and backgrounds discussing the importance of setting goals and reinforcing the idea that older fathers make better fathers. Each man has postponed fatherhood to strive for his goals. It is unclear, however, if they practiced abstinence, used protection, or were just lucky. The boys in Reality Check did not plan to become fathers, and most had goals. Perhaps they just were not as lucky as these men. Of the three books, this one is the most expendable. Although slightly flawed, both Listen Up! and Reality Check do present a true picture of the hardships of being a teenage parent. The size and readability will appeal to teenagers. Glossary. Index. Photos. Further Reading. Note: This review was written and published to address three titles: A Question of Timing: Successful Men Talk About Having Children, Listen Up! Teenage Mothers Speak Out, and Reality Check: Teenage Fathers Speak Out. VOYA Codes: 2Q 3P J (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q, Will appeal with pushing, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9).
