Synopsis

Choices: A Guide for Young People (Caribbean) by Gill Gordon

Choices is a guide for young people growing up in the Caribbean today. It provides them with accurate information about themselves and their bodies so that they can make informed decisions about their future. It focuses on happy, healthy and safe relationships, marriage and having children. This edition has new sections on the implications for young people of violence in the community, as well as on the risks involved in teenage sexual activity, social networking, and the use of cellphones. With the emphasis throughout on how to keep young people safe, this book covers ways to prevent STIs including HIV, the support, care and treatment for people with HIV, and the need to reduce stigma and discrimination. It promotes abstinence as the safest choice for young people, but acknowledges that they will grow up and at some point become sexually active. Equipping young people with accurate knowledge and positive values at an early age has been shown by research to delay sexual activity. Choices is aimed at young people, peer educators, teachers, health workers and parents. It will be particularly useful for teachers and students following Health and Family Life Education (HFLE) courses based on national syllabuses or the CARICOM Curriculum Framework for Grades 7 and above. Choices is written in a friendly, straightforward style with lively illustrations throughout. It will be invaluable to anyone helping young people to grow up as fulfilled, caring and responsible members of families and communities.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
