really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult
Read in October, 2011

A really interesting look into the psychology of denied pregnancy and attempted infanticide, by following the story--before and after--of a perfectionist teenager who leaves her newborn infant in a trash can to die (fortunately the baby is discovered and saved), and her eventual realization of what she's done. Well-written and heartbreaking.
