Booklist Review

Gr. 8^-10. Tucker and Fiona are the sex experts at alloy.com, a teen Web site. In nine chapters, they answer the basic questions teens have about the first time, sexually transmitted diseases, masturbation, pregnancy, "same-sex stuff," and protection. Each question offers both the male's point of view (Shaw), and the female's (Gibb). The jazzy, two-color layout includes line drawings, boxed survey results from the site, and a running footer of quips and quotes. Plainspoken and smart, Tucker and Fiona repeat their mantras: it's your body, you decide when you are ready; respect yourself; always use protection; tell the truth. They don't address the mechanics of sex or pleasure, but they do include straightforward descriptions of how to employ various means of contraception and what happens when you have an abortion. While the language may date quickly, the advice will not. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido
