For adolescent girls, making decisions about sex and sexuality is a challenge. Making smart decisions is even harder, especially when influences come from so many different directions--peers, media, and advertising. READY OR NOT? is a book that can help all girls who are contemplating their sexuality, whether it be the actual physical activity of having sex or simply dealing with changes in their body.

The book is broken down into three main parts, with several chapters and subcategories in each.

Part One: Your Body and You contains chapters on Puberty, Periods, Here's Looking at You, and Body Q & A.

Part Two: Emotions and You includes chapters entitled The Dating Game, Sexuality, Attitudes Toward Sex, and Emotions Q & A.

Part Three: Sex and You has chapters on Are You Ready for Sex?, Contraception, Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Women's Health, Boys and Sex, Let's Talk About Sex, Test Your Sexpertise, Having Sex, Sex--When You Don't Want It, and Your Most Embarrassing Sex Questions Answered.

READY OR NOT? is not intended as the end-all of teen sexuality. What it is, though, is a great guide for teen girls to use, in conjunction with their parents, to discuss sexual matters. The book also includes a Resources and Contacts section and an index to use for quick referencing when you want to read about a particular issue. Overall, READY OR NOT? is a very helpful, and well put-together, guide for teen girls dealing with sexuality and its aftereffects and consequences.
