About this title

Synopsis:

-- Investigates hot contemporary issues relevant to today's teenagers.
-- Excellent for both research and reports, these books are a valuable resource for any current issues collection.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up-This straightforward presentation serves as a basic introduction to the causes and consequences of teen pregnancy. Topics covered include factors that place young women at risk, including our highly sexualized culture and the decreasing influence of parents; reasons that teens might become pregnant, including sexual abuse, low self-esteem, and substance abuse; and choices for pregnant teens. None of these topics is discussed in any great length and little attention is given to the emotional consequences of miscarriage or abortion. Instead, most of the discussion centers on single mothers who keep their children and struggle to support them. The focus here is on facts and statistics, which adequately support the discussion, and not on personal anecdotes or survival stories. A final chapter looks at ways of changing the trend through building self-esteem, setting goals, and avoiding risky behavior. A helpful contraceptive chart featuring effectiveness rates is included. While the format makes this information accessible to reluctant readers doing research on the topic, turn to Janet Bode's Kids Still Having Kids (Watts, 1999) for a more personalized and thorough look at the subject.-Katie O'Dell, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
