Was it YA or adult? Mass market or more literary?

Sue Elleker | 780 comments 'The Turkeys Nest' by Alison Prince.
"Kate, an English teen, is pregnant, her self-centered boyfriend is no help at all, her actress mother sends her to live with
an aunt that she barely knows, on a farm in Suffolk. It's a beautiful story of Kate's developing love for the farm and her aunt, her pregnancy, a sharpened awareness of what her boyfriend and her mother are really like, and what she wants to do with her life.(less) "
