School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 8 Up-This timely book attempts to present a fair and balanced view of whether this segment of our population is entitled to equal treatment and representation in society. However, the pro side appears to rely more heavily on articles from organizations and newspaper columnists, while the con side includes three selections written by scholars in their field. While scholarly articles may be somewhat dense for students, some effort should have been made to balance this type of information on both sides. In addition, 4 of the 14 pieces are just on gay marriage. Since there is a separate series title already devoted to that topic, it's unfortunate that this book doesn't offer more material on family issues. A list of organizations is included.-Betty S.
