Taking the Plunge: A Teen's Guide to IndependenceBy:
Laura Purdie Salas
It's a fact: whether by choice or necessity, many teens move away from home, some before the age of 18. Taking the Plunge is a practical handbook for teens contemplating or facing independence. Without preaching or condescending, Salas realistically outlines the plans and concerns that teens must address to successfully build an independent life and control their futures. Chapters include life goals; education; jobs and careers; housing; transportation; finances; safety; health; and fun. Quizzes, worksheets, how-to boxes, and ten-best lists make the material accessible and visually appealing.
