Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 UpAn invaluable resource for facts and ideas for action that should be of interest to young people and adults who work with them. The text represents two years of interviews with 50 teens who were either pregnant or had children, as well as excellent background research on the subject. Lerman begins with a discussion of the statistics on teen pregnancy. From there she explores why teens have sex, young women's experiences with men, and what motherhood means to these young mothers. Issues about public assistance and independence and even an exploration of the positive effects of teen pregnancy are explored. Throughout, the author shares her personal experience and opinions. The last chapter is a compendium of ideas for adults who want to have a positive impact on the lives of young adults. The author covers everything from how to lobby for education to how to mentor. This book will be useful to adolescents who want information for school reports or personal reasons. However, it is really written for adults concerned about young people and belongs on parenting shelves everywhere. It will also be useful to a wide range of professionals who work with children and young adults.Melissa Gross, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
