Teenaged readers are invited to learn and practice tried-and-true decision-making techniques as they explore the choices faced by, and the alternatives available to, a real life girl named Erica. Erica was only 14 years old when a series of choices resulted in her murder. The book is clear that Erica did not deserve to die for her choices, but she did, and gently guides and encourages teens to gain the skills that they need to make safer choices.

Carol Watson is a founder and the Executive Director of Missing Children Minnesota, one of the oldest missing children charities in the United States. Carol became active in missing children's issues when her oldest son was abducted at the age of two, and was missing for 13 months. For the past 30 years, Carol has been dedicated to helping searching parents find their missing children, and to educating children, parents, and the public about how to prevent abduction, exploitation, abuse and bullying.Review:
Carol Watson has done it again. A book of help for ordinary kids who feel that their problems are EXTRA ordinary. Everyone who has thought of running away or knows someone who has run away should read this book. --Jean Illsey Clark - Co-author of Self Esteem: A Family Affair
Erica's Choices is a compassionate, touching, and yet informative book. The realities of running away are presented in such a way as to inform teenagers, their parents and teachers... so that teenagers can have a tomorrow, unlike Erica. Erica's Choices should be in every school across the nation. --Trish Williams, Executive Director of Child Quest International
