Overview

Angel's Choice by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

All I remember is the sensation of things slipping away from me....

In one night Angel Hansen's life changes forever: She has sex for the first time. Not that she remembers the act itself — not the pain or the pleasure. But she is left with something that will never let her forget it: an unplanned pregnancy. Angel must make a choice. Abortion? Adoption? Keep it? None of these choices are easy and none of them are perfect. But there is one thing Angel is sure of. Whatever choice she makes, it must be the right one for her. Braced with that knowledge, Angel faces the toughest decision of her life.

Angel Hansen is in love with Danny Stanton, but he's dating Ricky D'Amico, so Angel leaves the end-of-summer blowout with Tim O'Mara, and one thing leads to another. Angel doesn't remember the act that left her with an unplanned pregnancy. And she didn't seem to be totally aware of the decision that followed, but then suddenly all was clear and she made a different decision; a deliberate choice instead of reacting to the words and actions of others. She made the choice she felt was right for her. With all of the teen pregnancies in the world today, it makes sense to have stories that tackle this delicate subject. Angel's Choice is a good teaching tool for teenage girls, boys and parents.

Teenage pregnancy can't realistically be lived in only 250 pages, but Lauren Baratz-Logsted handles this controversial topic more successfully than most. ANGEL'S CHOICE begins like many other teen pregnancy stories with one bad decision; however, Angel's voice narrates a little something extra into the story that's really hard to explain.

There is the upset family, the lost friendships, the ostracism in the school classroom, plus the roller coaster of emotional and physical turmoil a teen pregnancy entails. Angel is faced with the choices of abortion, adoption, or becoming a young mother. She knows what a friend before her has chosen but realizes it isn't right for her. The less-than-happy teen father and her own unhappy parents have ideas of their own. Ultimately, the choice is hers and hers alone.

Although this subject is complicated and huge, the dialogue in much of the novel seems real and genuine. Angel confronts her obstacles bravely. After discussions with her grandmother and her aunt, she learns others before her have made similar painful decisions. Her attempts to remain a normal teen often succeed but are tempered with realism and an uncertain view of the future.

Angel's final realization is that survival would not be possible without the support and love of those around her. This is a book that should be included in any collection aimed at helping teens face the decisions of today and their consequences.

I was really kind of disappointed that Angel was somewhat a hyporcrite. She was so ready to get an abortion, but because the guy wanted her to get one, she wouldn't let him help her or near the child. I really like how she was selfish and didn't think about the fact that her child would have to grow up fatherless because she held to much of a grudge to let the guy see him. Other than that, the book was pretty good. If it weren't for the father not being able to see the son part, it would have gotten 5 stars.

The beggining of the book and the middle of the book was excellent but the end was disappointing...it could have been better

The Cover was the reason why i initially bought this book, but once i started to read it, i feel in love with the Angel right away. The twist and turns this book takes you one is unbelivable. I read this book in one sitting and the ending is favorite.
