This is the kind of book that every teen non-fiction collection needs. In 1997, this was a fine addition. The categories are appropriate, and the plays are short enough to work as class exercises or even library programs. The plays themselves, though, are a little dated. In the example below, the boy says his date was “a blower.” Then the girl character says she’s heard enough, and the boy tells her not to be “lewd.” When was the last time a teenager told another teenager not to be lewd? Not only would they not use the word “lewd,” they generally enjoy being lewd! I found the vocabulary a little strange in a few of these plays.
If it’s the best you can do and you have space for it, it’s not too awful, but if you can update it…please do.
