A quirky collection of stories about teens in lust and in love. From the first stirrings of same-sex desire to paternity questions around a teen pregnancy, 101 Ways to Dance reflects the spectrum of teen sexuality from the sweet to the scary.

Canadian Children's Book News
"This exquisite compilation does not suffer from any variation in quality: each story is simply as beautiful as the one before! They are fresh, candid, brief and insightful. They avoid didacticism and yet provide much room for reflection, and for simply savouring."
Off the Shelf
These stories are not graphic, they are beautiful and sexy.
These stories are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and sometimes disturbing, but always well and sensitively told.
Resource Links
This book will appeal to older teenage readers of both sexes who are making choices about their own sexuality.

Finding a book that portrays positive sexuality for teens is more difficult than people may think. With stories ranging from sweet to bittersweet to fantastically erotic, this book should be in teen sex-ed programs across the country!
