Frequently Asked Questions About STDs

by Nicholas Collins, Samuel G. Woods
 

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Etienne Vallee
Teens are faced with many difficult situations in their lives, from the decision to smoke to how to deal with divorce or family violence, to handling teen pregnancy. In Alcohol Abuse and Binge Drinking, the reasons for teen drinking are explored. The authors recognize that teens will be attracted to drinking, but they also present the short- and long-term consequences of alcohol abuse, and what can be done to help a problem drinker. In STDs, sexually transmitted diseases are clinically explained, including how they affect the body, how to recognize symptoms of infection, and how teens can protect themselves and their partner against, not only STDs, but HIV and AIDS as well. Teen Life: FAQ is written at the fifth grade reading level and is designed to appeal to struggling readers in junior or high school. The sentences are short and factual, and the writing manages to make what could be awkward topics more informative. Each book includes a helpful glossary, a section on myth v. fact, ten great questions to ask a doctor, and websites to visit for more information. Other titles in this series include Teen Pregnancy, Family Violence, Divorce, and Smoking. Rosen also includes a link to its own website where links will be regularly updated. Aside from some photos, which already seem dated, these books will appeal with a little push to teens who seek answers to their questions or for research projects on these topics.
