Oh, I loved this book! I’m not sure if it is just fluke, coincidence or evidence of a new trend in fiction, but the theme of teenage pregnancy and adoption certainly seems popular lately. I just finished The Things We Do for Love by Kristin Hannah which dealt with this issue, then watched Juno and now with Leavitt’s Girls in Trouble , the theme has been continued. And while this book was thematically similar to Hannah’s, Leavitt’s writing style is much stronger and more consistent. She also created much stronger, rounded and lifelike characters - culminating in a book that was all in all better executed. I even bought another one of her books today! I really enjoyed this one - even if it sort of had a loose ending, which usually bothers me a bit, but didn’t at all this time.
