CAP-PDX Teen health issues
Annotation:A great website with resources, tips, and general info including puberty, menstruation, and sexuality for tween and teen girls, specifically.
Annotation:Sex Ed for the real world. Inclusive, comprehensive, and smart sexuality information and help for teens and 20's.
Annotation:Realistic Fiction: This book starts immediately after Tracy has been raped, and lets you see inside Tracey’s head, experiencing her emotions and fears and most importantly, her struggle to make sense of what happened to her and to reconnect with the memory of feeling safe. She finds ways to help herself heal, with the help of the most important things in her life: a kind father, the memory of a loving mother, and good friends who wait in the wings for her "return." Emotionally difficult, but worth every word.
Annotation:Realistic Fiction: This book isn’t for everyone – it talks about some of the gross stuff that happens when our bodies are fighting cancer, there are some curse words and Izzy isn’t always a brave, happy little fighter the way other books and movies sometimes show cancer patients. She’s real, and that’s what makes this book so good.
