As a pregnant teen that got thrown out of the house in 1969', this story was close to my heart, but my parents forced me to give him up and i was heartbroken and devasted. I get why she wanted to keep her baby and I applaud her. Thanks for another great story.

I have read almost every book she has written. I love her writing style. Honest and raw. What a wonderful woman. I know she dosent feel like a saint but she truely has the patience of one. Keep writing kathy and il keep reading. Have a box of kleenex handy.

I have loved all of Cathy Glass' books... Until this one. The writing was poor, editing was poor, and the storyline wasn't even that interesting to me. Sad to say that this is Glass' worst work to date. If you haven't read any of her other books, definitely don't start with this one

Ok, first of all, it depends on how old you are. And second of all, don't ask him out. If he doesn't like you and likes Cate, and if you ask him out, right after he tells you that he likes Cate... it kinda makes you look like an douchebag. So just dont panic, and if you actually love this guy, then he will probably get over Cate, and maybe even like you. Also, he might actually like you, but didn't want to say it in front of you. So it could be that he just did some quick thinking and made up an answer. So ye. Thats all I can do for you. Hope it helped lol
