Editorial Reviews

"Pillow¿s potent, sophisticated text takes its place within a growing body of feminist scholarship that seeks to interrupt the demonization of pregnant and mothering teens and their symbolic use in debates about declining family values¿[this text is] a useful call to action for school workers committed to equitable schooling practices, for scholars interested in gender and education issues, and for advocates for the rights of young mothers to reach their full human potential."--Lucy E. Bailey, Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering (2009), Vol. 9, No. 1: 236-237
