This is a very straightfoward and succinct Q & A book for middle-schoolers and teens. This is not meant to substitute for a trusted adult; it is merely a list of non-judgmental answers to teens' questions, mostly about sex. The sex and drug answers are short and to the point. The bullying answer seems a little too short and mostly refers kids to a trusted adult, but most adults fail miserably at addressing this issue anyway.

Kids will probably look up a lot of these questions on the Internet

2.5 - Small enough to be discreet, but perhaps too small to have all the answers a person would want. I question whether a teen would even think to look for a book with these question rather than just searching online. I can't say as I would recommend to a parent either, as its answers are all over the place, and is without much depth in the answers. As we don't have a separate YA nonfiction section in my library (YA nonfic is interfiled with adult nonfic), I believe this book will get lost unle ...more

I wonder how many teens would actually seek out a book that they have to checkout or buy. But it does have a variety of resources on subjects that teens are more likely than not getting incorrect information on from the internet and what they hear from peers or partners. The format is straightforward and makes it easy for the reader to gather information for particular questions or concerns they might have.

There are certainly questions in this book that I would never have asked my parents - especially my mother! At least one page is devoted to each question. This is a smaller book - approximately 7 1/2 inches tall - so a page is not huge. The answers are frank and direct. The book should prove very useful.

Some of the questions I remember wanting answers to when I was a pre-teen. The answers are a mixed-bag. Henderson seems to be shooting for a no-nonsense tone that answers the question in a straight-forward way that'll appeal to teens and preteens. Sometimes she manages that. But frequently the answers sound condescending, and like they've been run by some sort of 'morality' police.

This is a great book to give any teen. It gives them important health, safety, and emotional advice they may not ask their parents. It's a small thin book, and each question is answered succinctly and without condescension.

A succinct book for middle schoolers and high schoolers answering basic sex and drug questions. The underlying tone of the book isn't always sex positive, though, and tends to favor abstinence.
