What Kind of Love? The Diary of A Pregnant Teenager
This book had its up and downs and I liked, but then again there were parts when I thought this book had no point. At times I felt sorry for Valerie, but at others I was mad she deserved what she was going though and what kind of person still thinks they’re pregnant at 4 months!

what I learned about this book was that you should always think twice before doing something in other words just think about the consecuenses =D

I read this book in my preteens and boy did it scare me. I think all young girls should read a book to this effect.
I borrowed this from my friend's mom. (Sad, I know.) But it was a great read.
