Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-When she was 14, Miranda lost her virginity to the school's football star, causing her to become the subject of much teasing and even some harassment. At 16, she meets Keith, the boy of her dreams, at a rock concert. She wants things to be different with him, but temptation gets the best of them, and she becomes pregnant. Although the two are in love, Miranda is inclined to have an abortion, while Keith thinks they should have the baby. This novel will appeal to teenage girls because of its romance and drama. It shows that there are consequences to the decision to have sex, but the choices that one has to make about an unwanted pregnancy aren't fully elaborated on; abortion or keeping the baby seem to be the teen's only options. Some readers may not agree with Miranda, yet they will identify with the heavy issues that face teenagers on the verge of adulthood.-Kristen M.
