1) Did you know that in America about 3 in 10 teen girls will be pregnant before the age of 20 making it almost 750,000 teen pregnancies every year.
2) Did you know that being a mother at such a young age is why so many drop out of high school and more than half never graduate high school.
3) Did you know that maybe about 2% of teen moms will earn a college degree by the age of 30.
4) Did you know that 8 out of 10 teen dads do not marry the mother of their child.
5) Did you know that 50% of teens never thought about how a pregnancy would affect their lives.
My book called The Silver Locket is a fiction book and a quick, intriguing, light romance novel that talks about this issue. From laughs to sad moments this book but can be enjoyed by anyone interested in the theme of teenage pregnancy or having to grow up fast because of life's surprises. I talk about all the issues that a pregnant teen will face in a way that will be story telling not lecturing. If you know of a pregnant teen or belong to a group that talks about teen-sex this is a good book for you. There is plenty of food for thought and it's a quick read as well. It would be a good book to discuss with your teen as they start to face many of life's exciting and harsh realities.
