Ask Me to Dance PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ask Me to Dance free pdf Maria Buhrkuhl was a bright teenager in a small town, unsure of herself socially, concerned about her weight, worried that others would not like her. She slept with a boy, hoping for love and acceptance, and then her life changed forever. Ask Me to Dance is a brave, tender and honest account of a young girl's experience with pregnancy and her struggle to make a decision about abortion. Buhrkuhl takes us to her teenage parties and talks us through her first sexual experiences. We follow her story as she considers how to tell her family about her pregnancy, as she explores abortion and as she begins to deal with the consequences of her decisions. Although a highly personal account, her narrative deals frankly with the broader anxieties of adolescence and young adulthood: the need to fit in and be liked, aspirations for the future, leaving home, searching for a sense of self and belonging. Buhrkuhl's hope is that in sharing her story she can open a space for dialogue and reflection in which other young women might feel a sense of empowerment.
