Reviews

"Finally! A book on adolescent sexuality by an expert who talks to teens about sex and relationships every day! Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between provides a window into the real issues that today's adolescents face and an essential road map to help parents and youth navigate this thorny new world." - Julianna Deardorff, co-author of The New Puberty: How to Navigate Early
"As a sex educator, I know that these are the real issues that teens have questions and concerns about. I really appreciate Shafia's candid discussion about teen sexuality, including many topics that they would likely be afraid to bring up with their own parents. Her book is very inclusive, and discusses perspectives and motivations that would be eye opening to parents. What a great resource to help teens navigate the sexual decisions of our modern culture and make smart choices. I wish everyone could have a Shafia as their personal counselor!" - Ivy Chen, Professor at San Francisco State, Department of Sociology and Sexuality Studies
"Shafia Zaloom has created a roadmap for every teen, every parent, and every family navigating the sometimes frightening intersection of loving, healthy relationships, sex, and digital technology. Zaloom is a gifted educator who approaches her work with compassion, a deep knowledge of the lives of today's teens, as well as candor-and well-placed humor. She shows us that underlying teens' complex relationships with technology and sex are the age-old human needs for caring, connection and respect." - Esta Soler, President, Futures Without Violence
"These are the conversations every parent wants to be having with their teenagers. The pages are filled with sensitive, honest and utterly urgent case studies that give us insight into the importance and delicacy of sexual consent. Shafia provides an unflinching examination of consent education - we can't afford to look away." - Bonni Cohen, documentary film director of Audrie & Daisy (as seen on Netflix)
"Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between is the ultimate relationship guide for teens of all orientations and identities. Teens will find the information, tools and wisdom to support their development of personal and sexual agency. These pages are loaded with familiar scenarios, each followed by helpful perspective and a breakdown of potential choices and outcomes relating to each situation. Shafia provides readers the fuel to make the consent conversation clear, relevant and applicable for everyone, acknowledging the interconnected factors of social media, normalized hookup culture, Internet porn and gender norms." - Cindy Pierce, author of Sexploitation: Helping Kids Develop Healthy Sexuality in a Porn-Driven World
