Divorce: The Ultimate Teen Guide focuses on the difficulties young people face in the wake of an epidemic that affects so many families. This book offers encouragement, insights, and resources to help teens cope with the challenges that come from living with divorce. Chapters address such issues as: -Managing parental conflicts -Financial concerns -Communication problems -Placing blame and taking sides -Depression -Living in a stepfamily Featuring stories about and quotes from young people and adults who have experienced parental separation and divorce, this book will be helpful for readers who are trying to deal with similar situations.

Reviews

This volume in the publisher's long-established It Happened to Me series for teens facing hardships takes on divorce and its many ramifications. In her usual straightforward style, Gay addresses the gamut, from unhappy home life before divorce through custody matters, postdivorce lifestyle and living arrangements, and reflections by adults who lived in divorced families in their teen years. Gay covers a wide array of circumstances as well, including the legal and social realities affecting the children of divorced same-sex couples, youth with incarcerated or otherwise long-absent parents, and stepfamilies. Informative sidebars get into detail about specific situations, such as learning household finances, and a helpful list of resources, including many websites offering creative outlets and practical advice, is included. Though the photos are occasionally stiff and staged and guidance for determining whether a website is credible would have been a helpful addition, this volume nonetheless will offer plenty of help for those interested in reaching out to kids suffering through a divorce as well as enterprising teens seeking out resources on their own. * Booklist * Divorce: The Ultimate Teen Guide is designed with the high school age student in mind who wants a broad overview of the emotional issues that a teen may experience while going through a divorce within their family. While the teenage years are a time of great emotional and psychological change, there are many issues that may arise for the teen from a divorced family, including how to manage parental conflicts, financial challenges the family may face, placing blame and taking sides, and living in a stepfamily. Information in this work is presented through the personal stories of teens and young adults who have lived through these experiences
