Synopsis

Pregnant! What Can I Do? - A Guide for Teenagers by Tania Heller

Each year in the United States, just under a million teenage girls become pregnant. Approximately three-quarters of these pregnancies are unintended, and more than a quarter of them end in abortion. A small percentage of teen parents choose adoption. This work serves as a guide for the pregnant teenager in getting help, making the right choices, and building a better future. It provides in-depth discussion of the three choices--adoption, parenting, and abortion--available to pregnant teenagers and presents interviews with teens who chose each of these options. This work also provides information for teenage girls about discovering that they are pregnant, the thought processes and reactions they may have, what they can do, where they can go for help, what they can do to take control of their situation, the role of their child's father, and the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. A listing of numerous resources for pregnant teens is also included.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

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