Marilyn Reynolds did a good job on the book Too Soon For Jeff. In this story it focuses on Jeff who is going to college at first, but after the announcement of his girlfriend being pregnant his plans are changed. I decided to read this book because it was recommended to me by a friend.
Too Soon For Jeff focuses on Jeff. He is also the main character. This book is written in first person. So when Jeff is separated from his family and friends you have no idea what is going on with them. This book

Do you like real life stories fufilled with action and a catchy beginning? Well this is the book for you. You'll actually feel the character, from emotions to what there going through and probably even shed a couple tears. Yup, that's right! You'll feel how it is to be lonely and have an idea of how a pregnant teenagers life is. It's crazy how her life is and how hard it is to accomplish her own life in "Too soon for Jeff"!

Jeff is a great character nd i feel bad for him bacuse he nd his girlfriend christy made a big mistake. so far jeff is tryin to convince his girlfriend of 2 years to get an abortion. i agree with abortion depending on the sititaion. in jeff's case he is way too yupong to have a baby but his girlfreids disagree. i hope jeffs takes up for his respoability because at the end of the day its christy's desions.

Jeff's girlfriend claims she's on the pill but she really isn't. She purposely gets pregnant because she's afraid she'll lose him. He gets so angry and breaks up with her. He loves her and the baby but really wants to go to college and make something of himself. They split up but he still cares for the baby (ethan).

This book took my breath away. It took my breath away to see a girl trap a man into having a baby. In most books having a bay or getting pregnant is a mistake. But jeff's girlfriend did it on purpose thinking he'll love her more. O boy was she wrong you should read this book to find out why.

This is a good book. The story is quite depressing, and it was too often the reality for teenagers in the high school that I went to. This story was always in the back of my head when I was growing up. Anyways, good read.
