This review is from: Young, Poor, and Pregnant: The Psychology of Teenage Motherhood (Paperback)
This book quickly disposes of the stereotype of the pregnant teenager, that way solely because of her (presumed) "immaturity". It also shows (or reminds) us that "teen" pregnancies usually involve "men" over 18 and well into their 20s.
The book also shows that "teen" (read above) pregnancies are not as evenly spread throughout society as many would like to believe. Socioeconomic standing, race, family structure, and sexual/physical/emotional abuse all factor into "teen" pregnancies.
