Product Description

"It seems like everyone else has the script. Everyone else knows what''s happening and I look around and say, Duh."

Of course, the truth is that no one has the script because there is no script to follow. Chances are you''d find that almost everyone else has questions and worries a lot like yours, if you could get them to admit it. This brand-new, completely updated and revised edition of Changing Bodies, Changing Lives is full of honest, accurate, nonjudgmental information on everything teenagers need to know about today.

Am I the only one who

can''t get up the nerve to ask someone out?
got my period so early?
doesn''t even know the right way to kiss?
feels pressured to use drugs?
still hasn''t hit puberty yet?
wants to avoid the gang scene?
worries when my mom doesn''t come home at night?
is scared that I might have AIDS?
can''t decide what form of birth control to use?
has no idea how to tell my friends I''m gay?
goes on eating binges?
has never had an orgasm?
is shut out of the popular crowd?

Changing Bodies, Changing Lives has helped hundreds of thousands of teenagers make informed decisions about their lives, from questions about sex, love, friendship, and how your body works to dealing with problems at school and home and figuring out who you are. It''s packed with illustrations, checklists, and resources for the answers you really need. Best of all, it''s filled with the voices, poems, and cartoons from hundreds of other teenagers, who tell you what makes them feel worried, angry, confused, sexy, happy, and, yes, even excited and hopeful about their lives. (Check out the first two pages for a sample of the quotes you''ll find inside.)

Being a teenager is tough. With the information and the ideas inside this book, you''ll have what you need to make these years the best they can be.

From Library Journal

Written by members of the Teen Book Project and inspired by the classic Our Bodies, Ourselves, this third edition of a book first published in 1981 provides information about health and sexuality for teenagers. Presented here is the latest information on the physical and emotional aspects of puberty, sexuality, healthcare, sexually transmitted diseases, safer sex and birth control, living with violence, mental health, and eating disorders. Artwork by and quotations from teenagers about their experiences in these areas bring the content to life and set the book apart from more standard works such as Richard Walker''s The Family Guide to Sex and Relationships (LJ 2/15/97). Each chapter has a list of associations and print and nonprint resources. An excellent, extremely useful source for young adults and educators; highly recommended for all collections.?Barbara M.

From Booklist

Although there''s evidence of updating, reorganization, and rewriting in this revision of the 1987 edition, much of this comprehensive landmark book on sex, physical and emotional health, and personal relationships remains the same--including many of the original quotes, most of which seem to have worn surprisingly well. The relaxed yet authoritative tone has been preserved, as has the level of detail, which is still very explicit. The authors have included more about eating disorders and AIDS; the section on drugs has been expanded, as have the lists of recommended readings; and a new chapter on violence combines discussion of gang violence and sexual harassment with material on rape (which also appeared in the earlier book). There are also a few new illustrations. Why the authors changed the names of some of the teens who are quoted (in one instance Elaine becomes Ellie) is a mystery, but that certainly won''t bother today''s readers, who will find emotional support as well as specific answers to most of their questions in this nonjudgmental resource that proceeds from the assumption that thoroughly informed teens can make better personal choices.

The content it does have, I like very much. The main problem is that the text "Completely revised and expanded" somehow gives you the impression that that revision and expansion probably happened sometime within the last 15 years. Nope. In fact: there is nothing in this book about the Internet whatsoever -- despite how large it looms in our kids'' lives.

Nothing about cybersafety, on-line bullying, chat rooms, sexting, Internet porn -- oh, this is strange: nothing about PORN at all. Even all the way back when I was a youngun I of course had that friend who''d found his dad''s Hustler stash and yeah, I was a little confused by what I saw, and the first time I watched a hardcore video I was definitely disturbed. I would have expected a book like this would explain a few things to me. But no, nothing. A strange omission even back when this book was last revised, but today our kids are looking at porn on-line that would curl your toes all the time and from a much younger age than you would believe. They need a book to set them straight about what they are seeing and why they might want to avoid it.

Someone else referred this to me for my 13 year old daughter. I skimmed though it and though it was well written and covered so many topics perfectly. My daughter was too embarrassed when I gave it to her and didn''t want to read it. I left it in her room hoping that she can use it as a reference guide if she every wants/needs too and is too embarrassed to talk or ask me.

This book is very helpful for my 10yo daughter. She has always been curious and asks many questions. Having this book around allows her to pick it up freely and read about what other pre-teens/teens feel about a particular topic, about their own bodies, about issues that are still remain important and relevant to pre-teens/teens'' lives. She is learning to love her body in a healthy, holistic way. Kudos.

I bought this for my adopted teen boys. I''ve used this for years in the comprehensive sexuality course, Our Whole Lives, that I taught for my Unitarian Universalist Fellowship''s youth. It''s very readable and although it''s completeness might put some adults off, it''s just what teens need today. We give it to each teen who completes the OWL course.

I would recommend this book to every parent with a teen. This book goes in depth on all kinds of subjects teens may have to deal with, and it has comments from teens who had to deal with certain topics in the book. I really like the book and so does my daughter.
