This book is so great to read if you like action. I would recommend this book to men and women and also young adults. This book is about a girl who is 17, 7 months pregnant and has hardly any money. One day her and her boyfriend are going somewhere. She realizes that she has lost her shoes and she has had to pee for a long time. He takes her to Walmart and he leaves her. She has to stay at Walmart for a while because she has no where else to go. she meets this man named Forney and he works at the library. She ended up having the baby in Walmart but Forney was there to help her deliver. She has a girl and she names her Americus. she moves in with this woman and they take care of each other. Everytime the month, year or even day started with seven she knew something bad was going to happen to her. By the end she told Forney that she loved him and that she wanted him to come back. She takes Ricky (her babies daddy) home. I did not like that the book ends with her talking ricky home. i wanted to see if Forney was coming back for her. i liked how Forney loved her even if she didn't love him at that moment.
