Gr. 9-12. In this title in the Hot Issues series, Durrett offers a mostly evenhanded overview of the historical events, ideologies, and questions fueling both sides of the abortion debate, as well as direct, reliable information about the procedures and alternatives. Concise and clearly presented, most of the information is up to date, with the exception of the FDA's very recent approval of Mifepristone (RU-486). The tone of much of the text is neutral, though Durrett does include opinions that extremists on either side may take issue with: "Placing a child for adoption is a very caring and lovely act," for example. And, while it's a bit off the topic, specific information about methods of birth control would have rounded out the volume. But whether teens are facing an unwanted pregnancy or just looking for background information on the debate, this is a solid, well-researched resource. Further information, including counseling and health-care centers (with ideological affiliations identified) appended. Gillian Engberg
