Overview

Now in paperback with new material and exclusive results from a nationwide survey.

A top editor at major teen magazines for more than a decade, Sabrina Weill has earned the trust of teens nationwide. Through thousands of letters, e-mails, and interviews, and now in an exclusive nationwide survey, teens have revealed to her their questions, fears, and concerns about what really goes on at parties, at school, before parents get home from work, online, and elsewhere. Here, Weill reveals what teens have told her-and offers parents and others insights into how to communicate with young people so they'll listen, open up, and think before they act.

Topics include:

- Virginity-keeping it, losing it, and what teens think "the first time" should be like
- The role of peer pressure, the media, and the Internet-and the surprising role parents can play
- Rainbow parties, oral sex, "friends with benefits," and current trends in teen sex lives
