Synopses & Reviews
«“Readers . . . will always feel like they are in the experienced hands of a master storyteller.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Nobody gets away with telling sixteen-year-old Eleanor Crowe what to do. But as a pregnant teen, her options are limited: move to Kenya with her missionary parents or marry the babys father and work at his familys summer camp for overweight kids. She chooses marriage. A camp tragedy prompts a series of events that overwhelms Elly with difficult choices. Somehow, she must leverage her usual stubbornness to ensure a future for herself and her baby. A fascinating character study.
From the author of "Go Ask Alice" and "It Happened to Nancy" comes this gripping narrative about a pregnant teenager who chronicles her experience in her diary. Fourteen years old and pregnant, Annie confides all her doubts and fears in her diary, revealing her deepest feelings from the time she learns she is pregnant until the time she must face the agonizing decision of whether to keep her baby or give the newborn up for adoption.
National Book Award-winning author Han Nolan portrays a tough and defiant pregnant teen who discovers her strength and compassion—and courageous plan for her future—while working at a camp for overweight children.
When Annie discovers she's pregnant by her boyfriend, she's devastated. She has never felt so alone. With no one she can talk to, she pours her heart out to her diary, confiding her feelings of panic, self-doubt, and the desperate hope that some day she can turn her life around. She decides she wants to keep her baby and dreams of loving and caring for this little person. But after the baby is born, it's in her diary that she faces the agonizing question: Can she really raise this child on her own?
