Synopsis

Adopted The Ultimate Teen Guide by Suzanne Buckingham Slade

The challenging teen years can be even more difficult for adopted teens, many of whom have unanswered questions that may result in fear, anger, and low self-esteem. Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide enables young adults to read about the personal experiences of other adopted teens, and gain powerful insights from those who have gone through some of their same frustrations, struggles, and concerns. This revised edition features discussion questions at the end of each chapter that help teens address various concerns, such as fitting in, deciding whether or not to search for their birth parents, meeting their birth parents, and what defines a family.
