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.

Reviews

This revised edition of Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide is designed with the high school age student in mind who wants a broad overview of the emotional issues that the adopted teen may feel. While the teenage years are a time of great emotional and psychological change, there are many issues that may arise for the adopted teen, including questions about where they came from, why their birth parents chose adoption, the idea of meeting their birth parents, and questions about what defines 'family.

; most of the stories focus on adopted teenagers and the various emotions and steps they took to resolve them. Within there are stories of meetings with birth parents, fitting in to peer and family situations, finding out one's been adopted, and the realities behind international and transracial adoptions. This revised edition has added discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help teens verbalize their questions, up-to-date statistics, and first-hand advice from adoption professionals. Teens who are experiencing strong emotions surrounding their adoption and who have questions about how others have handled the questions behind locating birth parents will find this guide useful. The personal experiences shared in this book will appeal to this target audience and could be useful for students this age researching this topic. American Reference Books Annual

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!

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
