I must admit that in the beginning I was a bit confused when the POV started changing but once I got into the book, I was amazed with the depth of it. This book may be targeted as YA due to the age of the main character but I think it is worth reading even if you are older than 18.
Throughout the book, we are following Lizzie her pregnancy. We see different scenarios of how it could all happen, how it could all go and what ifs and we get to know Lizzie like this. It is really refreshing to see this subject go through all of this so that you actually get to see how tough the decision actually is. No matter what you decide, it is tough.
I can’t say that I can understand Lizzie’s position because I wasn’t in the same position as her but I can say that this is emotional ride for a reader as well. I have felt through the book and must say that I was proud of Lizzie more than once. She stood up for herself and her baby which is amazing. A lot of older women are not as brave as she was.
I’m glad that I’ve read this book and was able to “see” what girls/women in those situation may be going through. I knew that to decide something like this isn’t easy, but you never know how hard it actually can be. Specially when you are staying at the crossroads of your life with 18 and you have to decide what will your future be. Specially when it changes in a short span of time.
I enjoyed this book for sure and I’m glad that there is such a mature book in a YA genre. I think a lot of people should be actually reading this, no matter what age. It can show parents what their kids might be going through but also show teenagers how it can be.
