This was an interesting set of new information to add to the stuff I've been reading on the working poor, but I just feel like the group studied was too small to give me a sense of what's really out there. I actually kept thinking of the book All Alone in the World: Children of the Incarcerated, by Nell Bernstein, because the issues of teen pregnancy plus a ton of other issues are dealt with in there really well. If you have to choose, choose the latter. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312422237, Paperback)

Growing Up Fast tells the life stories of Shayla, Jessica, Amy, Colleen, Liz, and Sheri--six teen mothers whom Joanna Lipper first met in 1999 when they were enrolled at the Teen Parent Program in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Less than a decade older than these teen parents, she was able to blend into the fabric of their lives and make a short documentary film about them. Over the course of the next four years she continued to earn their trust as they shared with her the daily reality of their lives and their experiences growing up in the economically depressed post-industrial landscape of Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
