Everyone treats Kalena differently now that she's pregnant. Which of course is normal in a teenage high school environment. No one knows how to relate to her problems or what they can do to help her.
Some of Kalena's behavior seemed a little off for what "normalcy" she seemed to have at home. What is the reason for her begging for attention and her immaturity? I think every character could have used some additional back story, and character building. Then again, it seems the highlight to the book is the morals you learn.
Isaiah is completely ignoring Kalena and pretending the issue does not exist. It almost seems as if the author wanted us to hate him an his family. It worked, I found him to be selfish and a bit annoying. I was surprised when Kalena didn't feel as embarrassed by her baby-daddy's behavior.
This is a pretty good book for the average "teen pregnancy growing pains." The plot is basic, but the emotions are real. I give this book 4/5.

I received a free copy of this story from the author for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.
Jenelle Pierre has done a wonderful job of capturing the struggles of a teenaged pregnant girl. Her characters are very descriptive to the point where it was easy to fall in love with certain characters and also become angry with some of them as well. She touched a subject that not only needed addressing but she does it in a way that not only captures the readers interest; it teaches the reader as well with a valuable lesson. May it touch the hearts of the reader and help those who are in a similar situation.
I recommend that you read this wonderful story when you get a chance.
