"Written by a sophisticated and caring adult physician for teens or about to be teens, it covers the questions that are on the minds of such readers in language that will neither bore nor overstimulate them.... [T]his book is recommended to parents, to students, and patients. It conveys its clear and unambiguous message in language acceptable to teens and adults. The author is not hesitant about articulating her point of view about love, sex, and AIDS."-- "American Journal of Psychiatry"
