Teachers and students from dozens of schools used the first edition of Heartbreak and Roses to begin a dialogue about young love and its complications. By reading the essays, students were able to see that their worries and troubles are universal, and they were assured that others shared the problems they faced in their own lives.
Now in this revised edition, Bode again provides teachers and students with an invaluable tool. These essays serve as a starting point for those who wish to understand the experiences of teenagers who are in -- and out -- of love. The voices of these young people set the stage for frank discussions about boyfriends and girlfriends, issues of race and sexual orientation, and making good decisions amid pressure from parents and peers.
Young love is not merely about attraction; in our modern world, it can be about choosing sexual activity or abstinence, having to combat verbal or physical abuse, and balancing friendships with romances. Heartbreak and Roses presents the problems and pitfalls of love, and it provides hope for those who seek healthy and nurturing relationships.
Teens from around the United States reflect on love, sexual behavior, and relationships with their parents and friends.
