Reviews

Jane Against the World reads, at times, like a legal thriller. I kept reminding myself, "Wait, I know how this ends....Blumenthal has done her job well: presenting the history, and leaving readers to wrestle with what the future may hold for families facing unwanted pregnancies.--The New York Times
*An account of the tumultuous struggle for abortion rights in the United States...Gripping reading; necessary for every library serving teens.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review *This essential guide, which gives voices to vulnerable populations, demands to be heard.--Booklist, starred review An excellent purchase for public and high school nonfiction collections.--School Library Journal

Blumenthal's impeccable research is revealed in the extensive back matter (including documentation, a subject bibliography, a timeline, and a glossary) that completes this compelling book.--The Horn Book

Written in clear, accessible language, as lively as it is thorough, the book presents the issue as far more nuanced and complex than the often sharply divided "pro-choice" and "pro-life" stances it is often boiled down to.--Publishers Weekly
