Publisher Comments:

andlt;B andgt;When Gaby faked a pregnancy to challenge stereotypes, she also changed her life. A compelling memoir from an inspirational teenage activist.andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Growing up, Gaby Rodriguez was often told she would end up a teen mom. After all, her mother and her older sisters had gotten pregnant as teenagers; from an outsiderand#8217;s perspective, it was practically a family tradition. Gaby had ambitions that didnand#8217;t include teen motherhood. But she wondered: how would she be treated if she and#8220;lived downand#8221; to othersand#8217; expectations? Would everyone ignore the years she put into being a good student and see her as just another pregnant teen statistic with no future? These questions sparked Gabyand#8217;s high school senior project: faking her own pregnancy to see how her family, friends, and community would react. What she learned changed her life foreverand#8212;and made international headlines in the process.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;In andlt;Iandgt;The Pregnancy Projectandlt;/Iandgt;, Gaby details how she was able to fake her own pregnancyand#8212;hiding the truth from even her siblings and boyfriendand#8217;s parentsand#8212;and reveals all that she learned from the experience. But more than that, Gabyand#8217;s story is about fighting stereotypes, and how one girl found the strength to come out from the shadow of low expectations to forge a bright future for herself.

About the Author

Gaby Rodriguez made national headlines in 2011 when, as a seventeen-year-old high school senior from Toppenish, Washington, she revealed she had faked a pregnancy for a class project. Her experience inspired a Lifetime movie, also titled The Pregnancy Project. Her grades were in the top 5 percent of her graduating class, and she was a commencement speaker. She was also in the ASB Leadership group and president of the school’s chapter of M.E.Ch.A (Movimiento Estudiantil de Chicanos de Aztlan: Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan). She was raised by her single mom and has seven brothers and sisters. She is currently attending college. Jenna Glatzer is the author or ghostwriter of nineteen books, including The Pregnancy Project with Gaby Rodriguez; The Marilyn Monroe Treasures; My Stolen Son with Susan Markowitz; Bullyproof Your Child for Life with Joel Haber, Ph.D.; and the authorized biography Celine Dion: For Keeps. She has written hundreds of articles for publications such as Woman’s World, Salon, AOL, and MSN, and is a frequent contributor to Writer’s Digest. She lives in New York with her daughter.
