Genre: Teen Pregnancy / Friendship
In this story twelve year old Afeni must learn to live with and get along with fifteen year old, pregnant Rebecca. While dealing with the all too recent death of her grandmother and divorce of her parents, Feni is sure she will have nothing in common with the new girl in her house. But after getting past the initial negative impressions, the girls come to rely on each other and to learn from each other as well. Although the plot is not very exciting or even sometimes present, the relationships between the characters are believable, strong, and compelling. This book would be a good inspirational tool for those struggling with teen pregnancy or for those who need to better understand the psychological ramifications of such an ordeal.
