by

You Look Too Young to Be a Mom: Teen Mothers on Love, Learning, and Success Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the hard-won wisdom of more than 30 young women who didn't give up on their dreams once they found out they were pregnant. Rather, they went on to live the lives they'd always wanted. One woman had her baby, finished high school, then college, and is now in law school. One abused woman in Northern Canada managed to escape her abuser, raise her child, and start a career in music. The true stories of these resourceful women are mind-boggling, poignant, even inspiring.

Synopsis:

Davis presents firsthand accounts and words of wisdom from dozens of women who defied the negative stereotypes about teen moms, found encouragement and support, and discovered their own paths to happiness and success.

Synopsis:

In real-life stories, teen moms tell it like it is, including advice on: giving birth - providing for a child - finishing high school and starting college - leaving abusive relationships - embarking on careers - defying non-supportive teachers and counselors - coping with snide comments and judgmental looks
