A top editor at major teen magazines for more than a decade, Sabrina Weill has earned the trust of millions of teens across the country. Through thousands of letters, e-mails, and interviews, and now in an exclusive nationwide survey, teens have confided in her, voicing their questions, fears, and concerns-and providing front-line reports on what really goes on at parties, at school, before parents get home from work, online, and elsewhere.
For the first time, Weill reveals what teens have told her-and offers parents and other concerned adults insights into how to communicate with young people so they'll listen, open up, and think before they act.

Sabrina Weill has served as editor-in-chief, editor, and Sex and Body editor at Seventeen, as well as founding executive editor of CosmoGIRL! and editor of Scholastic's teen health magazine Choices. She is also the author of The Seventeen Guide to Sex and Your Body and We're Not Monsters: Teens Speak Out About Teens in Trouble.From Publishers Weekly:
Hooking up: two teenagers meeting at the mall, or having drunken sex at a party shortly after meeting for the first time? Both, actually. And the central activity at a "chicken party" couldn't be performed by anything with a beak. Weill, former editor of Seventeen, seeks to demystify these and other steamy topics in her third book on teens and sex. Writing for parents and educators, Weill preaches communication and education as keys to staving off unwanted pregnancies, health problems and other pitfalls of becoming prematurely sexually active. Her advice is practical, but the suggested dialogues she provides can come off as Pollyanna. ("I want you to promise me you won't fool around with someone when either you or the guy or the girl have been drinking.") Peppered with survey and sexual health factoids-42 percent of 15-year-olds know someone who's had sex at home while their parents were in the house, and 29 percent of 12 - 17-year-olds think that someone who does everything but have sex is not a virgin-parents looking for insight into what goes on in their kids' beds can find plenty of answers here, though some may be hesitant to take a magazine editor's advice.
