Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 UpMoney, career choices, children, and the sharing of household chores are just a few of the myriad challenges in today's marriages. Teenage couples, however, have the added complication of their youth and immaturity in coping with the demands of the adult world. Lindsay approaches the subject in a positive, helpful manner, offering clear advice in a conversational tone and through straightforward language. She draws on extensive interviews she conducted with young people who are married or living with a partner and quotes them throughout to illustrate various points. Caring deals extensively with making a relationship last, using many of the same tips and techniques outlined in books for older married couples and focusing on endurance and commitment. Coping presents the day-to-day aspects of family life: shopping, finances, baby care, domestic duties, etc. Both books end with case studies, annotated bibliographies of related works, interviewee data, and questionnaires. For all teens even remotely thinking about serious relationships.Julie Halverstadt, Douglas Public Library District, Castle Rock, CO
