Teen counselor Elizabeth Clark created this book for teens as a tool for initiating discussions on sensitive topics. In her research with teens and their world, she became aware of how things have changed for teens in the last 10 years. Internet access to porn, with its emotional disconnection in sexual encounters and distorted depictions of sexuality, has lead to a whole range of disturbing consequences. Elizabeth has devised a unique approach that speaks frankly to the reader without condescension or judgement. A 19-year-old girl is the book's narrator. She warns and educates in a style teens will read more readily than conventional self-help books. Her narrator discusses privately and openly what she has learned about attraction, feeling sexual, setting limits, abusive situations, respecting yourself, and much more.
"This is the book I wish I had when I was a teen. Entertaining, honest, informative and empowering, [it] demystifies love, sex and everything in between." --Daria Snadowsky, author, Anatomy of a Boyfriend
