Editorial Reviews


“Denner and Guzman bring together research that counters with data revealing that young Latinas are successfully negotiating challenges they encounter.”
-Hispanic Link Weekly Report

“A groundbreaking volume of social science research that provides us with the missing presence of adolescent Latina girls in research on the family, institutional barriers, and support. A must read in Latina/o Studies!”
-Mary Romero,author of Maid in the USA

“Denner and Guzman create a text that is meant to challenge the social sciences and to create new avenues of study that are essentially, girls’ studies—focused on Latina girls.”
- Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women’s Studies Resources

“Denner and Guzman offer a compilation that provides a wealth of practical examples for academics, researchers, and community members, breaking down dysfunctional stereotypes and opening doors to new visions.”
-Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By R. Bernhardt on September 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
This work includes a broad range of research on the current realities of Latina teens in the U.S. I found several of the articles to be very insightful and enlightening. "Latina Adolescent Girls" should help policymakers and service providers design programs to support Latina teens, and by extension, Latinos in America. This kind of positive scholarship is essential as more and more of America becomes defined by a bi-cultural reality, in schools, workplaces and other settings. This book should contribute to better understanding and policymaking that affects America's new majority minority.
