Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk about Sexuality
Deborah L. Tolman
Harvard University Press
Fascinating look at female teenage sexuality
This book is a brilliant look at adolescent female sexuality and our society's double standards. I would suggest it for anyone going into motherhood, teaching, or counseling for examinations of how our girls are being taught to be objects of desire for boys without having any desire of their own. If anything, as a woman, it has helped me realize the sexual boundaries that as a teenage girl, I ...

The Omnivore's Dilemma for Kids: The Secrets Behind What You Eat
Having read the Omnivore's Dilemma (for Adults) I purchased this because I was thrilled that someone finally took the time to direct a book at Kids on such an important subject. In all honesty, the OD for Adults was a very "Hard Read" if you know what I mean. This children's edition made things clearer for me as an adult and I know will be just perfect for kids. Great job. I have recommended ...

The Hedgehog's Dilemma: A Tale of Obsession, Nostalgia, and the World's Most Charming Mammal
Excellent on hedgehogs, and biology in general.
I loved this book. I bought it because a good friend, a lifelong petless woman, is totally gaga over her pet pygmy hedgehog, and I just couldn't understand their appeal (being partial to the usual cats and dogs myself). But this book is not a primer on hedgehogs, as such. The book is a funny, informative, sensitive love story of the author and hedgehogs. The author is a professional ...

The Wizard's Dilemma (digest): The Fifth Book in the Young Wizards Series
Nita growing up
I have long enjoyed the guilty pleasure of "young adult" fantasy fiction, and have recently discovered Diane Duane's work. The themes and her take on how magic works, as well as it's place in the world have been very interesting and original. I have felt somewhat irritated by the attitude of Nita's parents, particularly her mother, who has appeared particularly obtuse, although I try to give ...
