You’ll get a flash back of groovin’ in a roller disco when you listen to the new album by Body Language! Once you’ve danced your last Solid Gold move, curl up with a memoir about a teen mother, written by Tracy Engelbrecht, and prepare to laugh as she reminisces about her experience becoming a mother.
“With its diverse mix of uptempo dance beats, pop hooks and soulfully funky vocals, “Social Studies” has something for just about everyone, provided they don’t feel like sitting still.” – Dena Trugman, NPR.org
Tracy Engelbrecht had me hooked on her story within the first few pages of her refreshing (and FUNNY) account on life as a teen mother. While her “Situation” (as some in her community referred to it) is one which may have turned out much differently, her candid approach to writing results in the perfect balance of amusement and serious reflection.
“Tracy Engelbrecht’s first book is honest to the point of running down the street, shrieking and naked. Her story is not one often told with humour or lightness – that is, the story of what it is like to be a teenage mom…With wit and humility, Engelbrecht shares her mistakes and triumphs, regrets and pleasures. She doesn’t presume to be an agony aunt or a psychologist – just another girl, not so different from everyone else.”- Cape Times
