Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Erin Wyatt
This title is a dictionary of terms related to anatomy, puberty, relationships, and sexuality. Definitions are concise, and pronunciation guides are provided in this accessible resource. The inclusion of some of the terms, particularly those related to eating disorders, seem to be outside the purview of the topic. Black-and-white sketches pepper the text to offer further illustration of the terms. A collection of games and puzzles related to the terminology is included as an appendix. While the cursory definitions may not provide enough depth for older teens, younger readers may require further development of context for the terminology in order to understand the relationships between the various terms, leading to a better perspective of the reproductive process. The book purports to use formal terminology with a neutral tone, and while most of the it manages to maintain neutrality, definitions of such terms as "morality" make this claim of neutrality a bit suspect. It is doubtful that users would seek out this slim volume to answer questions about sex, as the terminology in isolation would only be helpful in the instance of a very direct informational need.
