this is a quick read due to the poetic style. One night of too much action creates a pregnant teen with a mother full of anger and spite. 16 year old Sahara refers to it as the thin pink line. She is in emotional turmoil until her third trimester when she finally gets up the courage to tell her mother. I may have just spoiled it, but reading her thoughts only lets you know what a struggle it is to go through such a life-altering situation. ( )
