This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
so, a young girl finds out she's pregnant, a high school girl and she's trying to get advice from her friends, family and school counselor on what to do... but at the same time she's trying to enjoy her high school experience.... it says that this book was written for high school classrooms! it's supposed to be a way to help teenagers respond to different views on marriage and abortion! um, i don't think so. this book promotes staying in relationships even if they're bad because of "high divorce rates". NO! there are much better ways of getting high schoolers to talk to adults about pregnancy and abortion/options than this book. just no.. this man has never had to deal with a teenage pregnancy and it shows. it's not black and white!

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
In the land of make believe, this author subsumes that teenage pregnancy is just going to be “just fine”, as the unwed mother is not only given, without cost to her, or her baby daddy, a house (or living space), a new car, and an engagement ring. The idea that this moronic child, this undeveloped unwed mother to be at 17, has to be ruined by this parasite, while at the same time trapping her equally naive boyfriend.

This book is dangerous, especially in the hands of the otherwise very stupid - abortion is the right choice for most, if not all, pregnancies for mothers under the age of 18. And the dog whistle of going to Spanish speaking store not only adds to this ridiculous fantasy, it really just shows the truly harmfulness of letting any old white man comment on pregnancy and the rights of women.

Do not waste your time on this book. It’s not even a book. It’s like 80 pages. Much like I’m sure the republican moron who wrote this book, he didn’t even think past the first five minutes of a problem.

I’m disgusted I got this book as an early reviewer — shame on you. I hope your tonnage girls get pregnant and you have to deal with the real life situation that happens to women who aren’t given the right to choose. Also, I’ve looked at your LinkedIn — your self written bio is grossly overrated. You can’t seem to hold a job, you haven’t written anything in this millennium and this book is one sided: the wrong side. Women have the right to choose. ( )
