Recommended for: Anyone who wants to read a teenage pregnancy novel with a different ending

I was interested in this book because it is surprisingly difficult to find young adult novels about teenage pregnancy in which the baby doesn't end up being given away for adoption. I thought that the general story line was a good one, and I felt that Thea was a realistic portrayal of a teenage girl struggling with the decision of whether or not to have her baby, after already feeling that she loves it. I was disappointed though, in the lack of emotions that the story seemed to contain. I couldn't sense a real connection between Thea and her boyfriend, Will, and the change of heart from her father seemed too sudden and overnight to really make much sense to me. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a more original, refreshing take on teenage pregnancy.
