Expecting: A Novelby Lula Belle
Sheila is a snarky, smart, fifteen-year-old
What if John McCain had won the American Presidency in 2008, then died a few months later leaving Sarah Palin to become America's first female president? What if political circumstance led to the repeal of Roe v. Wade, making abortion illegal again in nearly half of America? This is the reality of Sheila Martin's world.
Sheila is a snarky, smart, fifteen-year-old piano prodigy whose main concern in life (besides boys) is her scheme to become an international pop star, just like Lady Gaga. Unfortunately, there are two problems keeping Sheila from realizing her dream: the first is her conservative, controlling mother; the second is that Sheila is pregnant.
Sheila is forced to grow up a little faster than she'd like to as she learns that the secrets of the past have a way of haunting the future, that no decision is ever black and white, and that in order to truly love she must first learn to forgive.

Page-turning fiction that examines, among other things, today's burgeoning debate on reproductive rights. A must read for young women!
"A realistic work of fiction that manages to take a frightening political 'what if' and spin it into a believable, entertaining and humorous page turner. Lula Belle takes us into a United States where Sarah Palin is president and Roe v. Wade has been overturned. Sheila, a witty and wise-beyond-her-years pregnant teen, takes the reader on her personal journey to find peace with her pregnancy while also helping another young girl in an even more heart-wrenching situation than her own."
