The Teen Trip: The Complete Resource Guide just emerged from the printing
presses. The 550 pages are built around the experiences of 1,500 young people
(illustrated by high school students). Dr. Kimball added a wealth of
information and resources for further exploration.
Chapters include body, feelings, sex, drugs, peers, family, school,
getting into college, work and money and community activism. This juicy
encyclopedia provides teens with information on every conceivable topic without
a judgmental adult voice. (Also available, Kids' Advice to Kids: How to
Survive Your Parents' Divorce) We appreciate your help in getting the word out
to teens.

The Teen Trip is a candid and thorough look at the potentially daunting issues
faced by today's teenagers, refreshingly presented through the voices and
stories of the teenagers themselves.
-Sylvia Ann Hewlett, author and President of the National Parenting

It's time someone wrote a book that teens can actually use and get help
from. -Ashley, 16

I'd read this book any time I had trouble with my feelings and I am not
saying that to get a good grade. -John, 15

The book has a two-sided feel which neither encourages or discourages
teens to do what ever. It's a good book.
-Aimery, 15

Readers will find out that it includes a lot of things that teenagers
want to know about, like colleges or getting a job. -Tyler, 16

Very insightful into the innermost feelings of teenagers. It helped us
realize that maybe other people have problems just like ours. We could really
relate to the kids who spoke about the different topics. We thought the
information given to us about how to deal with the problems helped a great deal
-Whitfield School students, St.
Louis, Missouri
