While it paints a picture of the realities of teen pregnancy, this book offers no new viewpoints and feels like an after school special. The characters are wooden, the plot is uninspiring, and the end is inevitable. Even the heroine's destructive habit of confusing sex with love is stated and then left unexplored. Had the book gone into less-explored territory (say, the heroine had her planned abortion, or she got together with the boy who loved her while planning to keep another boy's kid, or I don't know, got some help with her issues), maybe something good could have come of it. As it is, skip this and read The First Part Last.
Recommend to: Maybe just don't.
