This book is written for teenage pregnant mothers who are in high school or college. It is a special book in that each chapter includes non-fictional testimonials of young mothers who have experienced being pregnant at an early age. These real life stories makes the reader view the information from a young woman's point of view. It makes all the scientific and practical material personal and relevant. The author also does a good job of educating the reader with scientific factual information about pregnancies, abortions, adoptions, DNA paternity tests, birth control, and prenatal care. It also included information about WIC, Medicaid, Food Stamps, housing, maternity leave, day care options, continuing education, and a host of contact numbers and web resources.

The Unplanned Pregnancy Book for Teens and College Students is an excellent resource for young parents-to-be. Williams-Wheeler has compiled a step-by-step guide so an individual can formulate a course of action and gain insight into their purpose in life. The chapters are detailed and offer a non-judgmental description of all the options available. Particular attention is given to determining if you are actually pregnant, how to have conversations with parents and boyfriend/child's father, what to expect during the pregnancy, parental assistance programs, what will the baby need, the 411 on abortion, adoption, future contraception, and an extensive resource section with addresses, telephone numbers and internet addresses. Williams-Wheeler has taken the time to develop a resource that will enlighten lives and encourage young people. It is written in easy to read language and organized to answer the questions young parents may have. She offers first-hand stories and testimonies from teens and young adults who found themselves in similar situations. There is also a section with questions to stimulate conversation and activities to be used in conjunction with the reading. This is a superb resource for every high school counselor, youth group advisor, or organization that works with teens. Reviewed by M. Bruner for Loose Leaves Book Review

Dorrie Williams-Wheeler has written the best guide to help teens and young adults with the choices and obstacles they faced with an unplanned pregnancy. She shares real-life stories that will help encourage anyone when faced with this situation. Mrs. Williams-Wheeler has also provided excellent resources that will lead our young girls and young women to trusted people who can help them regardless of their situation. Not only the young ladies, but the young men can learn a lot from reading this book. Although there are plenty of choices, she emphasizes the importance of making the right decision for you. Prevention and abstinance may be the best, but when an unplanned pregnancy happens, knowing who to turn to and where to go is most important. I wish this book was written when I was a teen, or when my own children became teens. Definitely a book that is needed for such a time as this.
