Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Understanding mom can be complicated, especially when "you" are on the fast track to becoming an adult. Phase 1 begins with mom's dreams and aspirations as "you" are conceived, develop, and emerge at birth. There is worry and confusion as "you" and mom both try to adjust to increasing intervals of separation in Phase 2. Drastic body changes happen and "you" are expected to be independent, intelligent, and curious in the third phase, seeking new role models. Often "you" feel like a yo-yo. It all comes down to common needs for both—honesty, understanding and communication. Illness, death, gay parents, and competition complicate relationships with mom. They are addressed in Phase 4 and coping mechanisms are offered. This title—written in second person—is from the Sunscreen relationship series, serves as a practical guide for young people and offers strategies for surviving. The heavy paperback book features black-line figure drawings on colorful collage backgrounds illustrating life-changing stages that escalate and reflect "your" spurts of transformation. A variety of multi-colored and styled fonts articulate the messages conveyed in the framed boxes. It is a book for both genders but recommended books titles and websites listing additional resources spotlight young female audience. An extensive index serves as a quick reference for finding specific topics. Readers will not acquire in-depth therapy in this quick read, but will profit from the lighthearted and balanced mother/child presentation. 2005, Amulet Books, Ages 12 to 18.
—Barbara Troisi
School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-This book is meant to help readers make sense of their often-conflicted relationships with their mothers. It is divided into four sections, labeled "phases." The first two describe fetal development and mother-infant relations and are likely to provoke much eye rolling in any teen who reads them. Phase three offers a discussion of mother/teen conflicts, and phase four contains anecdotes about special situations, such as having same-sex parents or a mother who suffers from depression. The writing is straightforward and breezy, with occasional inclusions of Freudian theory. Although this title is ostensibly addressed to either gender, it is most likely to appeal to girls, and the suggestions for further reading, which include Esther Drill's Deal with It! (Pocket Books, 1999) and Julia Devillers's GirlWise (Three Rivers, 2002), and the suggested Web sites, such as Cosmogirl.com and Gurl.com, emphasize this focus. There is some useful advice here, but teens who are in genuine conflict with their mothers may find it too simplistic. Michael J. Bradley's Yes, Your Parents Are Crazy!: A Teen Survival Handbook (Harbor, 2004) and Doris A. Fuller and Natalie Fuller's Promise You Won't Freak Out (Penguin, 2004) are better choices.-Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    She's reading it!

    Although my teen, 16 said she would not read it, I put it in the bathroom, and she is reading it. I even leave it propped open at certain pages. I think her compassion of me is increasing. Whew! signed , the mom.
