Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595409261, Paperback)Binge drinking, date rape, family secrets, and teen pregnancy collide in Choices, a compelling and bumpy coming-of-age journey that hurtles fifteenyear- old Kara MacNeill into a state of panic, fear, and confusion.
A sophomore at an all-girls Catholic academy in Colorado, Kara finds herself crossing the line into womanhood after an arrogant high school basketball star rapes and impregnates her, and then urges her to get an abortion. Facing lifealtering decisions and a major confrontation with her conservative Catholic parents, Kara discovers the allies that will help her to deal with her crisis and recover from her mistakes.
Choices is the powerful story of a teenage girl who learns to think for herself, take responsibility for her choices, and discover a solid sense of self along the way.
“This young adult novel tackles date rape and abortion with remarkable tenderness.” —Ms. Magazine
“A Catholic teenager collides head-on with the doctrine of her youth … A fast paced story that portrays real events to which many teens can easily relate.” —Kirkus Discoveries
