Welcome back to the Saturday edition of Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're celebrating a BOOK BIRTHDAY of a Young Adult title that's hitting store shelves everywhere as we speak. While it's fast approaching my "reading now" shelf, it's not quite there yet so I thought I might give you a tease of what's to come. You know, in case you just can't wait to check it out; I know how titillating books can be.
Get out your party hats and spray confetti, here comes the BIRTHDAY BOOK!
Flattered by the attentions of Nick, the cutest guy in school, seventeen-year-old Grace Warren, captain of the math team, lets down her guard and gets pregnant the night she loses her virginity. Hopeful that Nick will drop to one knee and propose when she breaks the baby news to him, Grace is heartbroken - Nick wants nothing to do with her. Her best friend, Jennifer, thinks she should get an abortion, but Grace is certain that her morally upright parents will insist that she keep the baby. After she comes clean to her super-religious, strait-laced parents, they surprise her by insisting that she terminate the pregnancy to avoid humiliating the family. But when she sees the fetus on the ultrasound, she decides she can't get rid of it. Deciding to save the tiny life growing inside of her, Grace must face the consequences of being that girl - the good girl who got knocked up.
Not as happy-go-lucky as the rest of our week has been but then again...life isn't always roses and sunshine. Sometimes it's the HARD stuff, the stuff you never imagined you'd encounter and yet, it must be dealt with.
Sounds like it's going to be an interesting read and one that some can relate to with personal experience. This title will be in the "reading now" stack soon thanks to Merit Press, so be on the look out for my forth coming review! In the mean time, to find out more, feel free to click through any of the links in this post.
Until next time...happy reading!
