did not like it
bookshelves: ya-fiction, teen-pregnancy
Read from October 19 to 30, 2011

This book was tooooooo much. I understand that Levine wanted to show different outcomes to dealing with pregnancy in a pre-legal abortion atmosphere. I think it might been better done in short stories though because in this format, she's got 2 friends, both pregnant--one by a rape that is alluded to throughout the story PLUS a dad who was a political prisoner in the McCarthy era. I know there's a lot of really interesting historical stuff for great historical fiction. It just doesn't all have to be in one book.
