Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Halley and Scarlett have been best friends for years, sharing secrets, clothes, and crushes. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley?s just her quiet sidekick. Then, at the beginning of their junior year, the balance shifts. First, Scarlett?s boyfriend Michael is killed in a freak accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. She needs Halley now. But even as Halley does her best, she?s dealing with her own pressures?resisting her controlling mother, and dealing with her first serious relationship. Sarah Dessen?s unique voice is funny, poignant, and true, with a warm Southern accent that makes Halley?s story instantly appealing to teenaged girls and adult readers alike. Sarah Dessen lives in Durham, North Carolina.

Synopsis:

Nobody gets away with telling Eleanor Crowe what to do. But as a pregnant sixteen-year-old, her options are limited: move to Kenya with her missionary parents or marry the babyand#8217;s father and work at his familyand#8217;s summer camp for overweight kids.

Despite her initial reluctance to help out, Elly is surprised that she actually enjoys working with the campers. But a tragedy on the very day her baby is born starts a series of events that overwhelms Elly with unexpected emotions and difficult choices. Somehow, she must turn her usual obstinance in a direction that can ensure a future for herselfand#8212;and for the new life she has created.

If i had just read the back cover of this book, and had not read anny of Dessens other books, i would've thought it was trash. The backs really misleading. Makes it sound like some book just about silly girls and there small problems in life. It's got so much more to it.
It's about family, Friends, and love. It's oh so easy to fall in love with Dessens characters. And im so sad she only has like seven books or soo. I can read Dessens books any day. I think everyone should read this book. Teens, and there mothers. It is alot about motherhood, stubborn mothers, not good enough mothers, and new mothers. I just loved it.
