More than thirty years ago a pioneering young adult librarian named Margaret A. Edwards protested that many adults seem to think that if sex is not mentioned to adolescents, it will go away. <P> As succeeding decades have demonstrated, silence is no arbiter of behavior. Not only has sex not gone away, it has become a quintessential -- perhaps even obligatory? -- rite of passage for adolescents. <P><BR> So writes Michael Cart in his foreword to Love and Sex: Ten Stories of Truth, a groundbreaking volume in which some of the finest writers for adults and teens have contributed original stories on the various aspects of love and sexuality. <P> From Joan Bauers Beth, whose resolve to remain a virgin is tested when the man of her dreams asks her out, to Michael Lowenthals Jesse, for whom an after-school tutoring session fulfills a childhood obsession, to Laurie Halse Andersons Adam and Lily, thrown together on an unwanted blind date, all of these characters reveal different angles on thepressures and complications (and occasional joys) of a teenagers romantic life. <P> Other authors in this collection include Emma Donoghue, Lou
