Format: Paperback
_You Look too Young to Be a Mom_ is a collection of essays that manages to be inspirational while avoiding mere sentimentality. A diverse group of voices is represented in the collection. The writer of one essay could be the kid next door, while the writer of another may come from a completely different region--both of the country and of mind. As a whole, the collection serves up wisdom, heart, humor, pain, and perspective, each in its turn.

YOU LOOK TO YOUNG TO BE A MOM- is a wonderful collection of essays from strong women. The book will make you cry and smile all at the same time. People always say its such a hardship to be a teen mom but most of the burden comes not from the situation but the strain society puts on teen moms and their offspring. I would recommend everyone buy this book. I have read this book a dozen times over and i never tirer of hearing these womens voices as they recount their journies through the joys and trials of womanhood and motherhood. I think this book really explains why anything worth having is worth working for.
