Secrets once seemed like lies, but Sophie discovers that secrets actually protect. Sophie's got a secret--the father of her baby. Her mother also has a secret--Sophie's father.

Waiting for June allows the reader into the inner thoughts of a high school senior unsure of her future. In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Sophie is determined to make a life for her and her baby. But there is something about her baby that is crazy. It inherited traits from the father , if you want to know you will have to read the book. ( )

Sophie is a high school senior, an honor student, and pregnant. Like her mother before her, she refuses to disclose the name of the father of her child and has to endure being a social outcast, as well as some rather strange dreams involving whales. I thought this book was very engaging, and the plight of a young soon-to-be mother was well portrayed. Sophie has to deal with people treating her poorly, speculation as to who the father is (most believe it is her best friend, who is African American, but you don't find out until the end who it really is), as well as death threats and unexplained phenomenon.
