Teen Rights (and Responsibilities) by Traci Truly, Truly

The six sections that divide this book discuss your rights in areas such as school, home, and work. More than forty chapters contain a spectrum of topics ranging from dress codes and curfews to drug abuse and discrimination. In addition, a state-by-state legal guide provides a quick reference of individual state laws regarding such concerns as your driver's license, age of majority, marriage, and child labor law.

Included within the text are Teen Tip and Parent Tip boxes that highlight specific suggestions from the author. An extraordinary list of organizations, websites, and agencies identify valuable sources of additional information. Hotlines are listed in the reference section to provide quick help in an emergency situation.

While written specifically for teens, this book can also serve as an outstanding guide for adults who are seeking to understand the rights and responsibilities that teenagers have in today's society.

More than forty chapters cover a spectrum of topics:
- freedom of expression
- school attendance and discipline
- discrimination
- becoming a legal adult
- parents' divorce
- insurance
- assault
- alcohol, tobacco, drugs, weapons
- eating disorders
- birth control
- abortion
- workplace issues
- owning property
- the court system
