It's rare that a book features a protagonist that I want to shake some sense into, while keeping it entirely realistic that she would think and act that way. The whole time Molly is chasing Grady, I'm wondering why, what she sees in this boy who is so obviously no good (the only person surprised by what becomes of Grady is Molly) while at the same time knowing that it doesn't matter. It was so real that I ended up feeling sorry for her throughout her pregnancy. Which yes, went by rather quicker than I would have liked. Could have used another 50-100 pages in that area. But in the end, it was a very real and heartfelt book, one that I'd be happy to share.
