All Grown Up & No Place To Go Teenagers In Crisis Author- David Elkind This book explains the topic on teenagers on what they go through, the types of trials they go through, and stages they go through when they are teenagers. In the book he talks a lot about teenage peer pressure, and trying to be popular. In the book it also talks about puberty, and how teenage boys, and girls react to these changes. It could be either a positive thing or mostly a negative thing because teenagers try so hard to be the best looking or they worry about their bodies too much. Later on in the book it talks about relationships, teen pregnancy, the different types of stress teenagers go through. Even though there are some things that are negative thoughts on teenagers most of its true, and some of the statistics might have changed because it¿s an older book. The whole jest of book was just basically talking about teenager¿s emotions, physical, and academic things they go through. The book was kind of easy to understand because he gave a lot of examples in the chapters. Some of the facts were interesting that I didn¿t know about but than there were some things that I already knew about teenagers so it kind of made the book a little boring. Also he kept repeating a lot of things in the book that he already talked about in two chapters ago. So the book is very repetitious, and boring a lot of times. Other than that the book was ok it had some interesting things but other than that its not worth buying the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
