In Every Little Thing in the World, Nina de Gramont turns a familiar predicament--teen pregnancy--into an unforgettable journey.
From the author of the adult novel "Gossip of the Starlings" comes this young adult story that turns a familiar predicament--teen pregnancy--into an unforgettable journey for one girl.
When sixteen-year-old Sydney Biggss pregnancy test shows the telltale plus sign, she confides in only her best friend Natalia, and Natalia promptly “borrows” her mothers car so Sydney can confront the babys father. But after the car is reported stolen and police bring the girls home, their parents send them away to wilderness camp as punishment. With six weeks to spend in the wilds of Canada, time is ticking for Sydney, who isnt sure what she wants to do about the pregnancy. As she befriends her fellow adventuremates and contends with Natalias adamant opinions on the choices available, Sydney realizes that making the right choice can mean very different things.
