Riassunto: Hannah: I didn?t even have periods two years ago, and now I?m probably pregnant. When did I forget how to be a child?
Trilby: My mom thinks I should go visit Hannah. . . . I don?t know what I?d say to her. . . . What is it like to have sex? What is it like to be pregnant?
Roman: I know why I?m mad. I want to hold the baby too. I want to be his uncle.
When she finds out she?s pregnant at age 15, Hannah Ziebarth believes she will be all right. She will start a family with Milo, and the three of them will live happily ever after. Then reality hits hard.
Louise Plummer tells Hannah?s powerful story from three varied perspectives in this tale of loss, recovery, and self-discovery.
Recensione: "Milo wasn't the first boy to kiss me but he was the first one to bite me."
He's also the first boy to slug her when she tells him she's going to have his baby. Hannah Ziebarth, 15, had felt loved by rich, good-looking Milo and his cool, elegant family, and as she leans on the dumpster in the alley bleeding on her dowdy Burger Bar uniform, she is in shocked denial. The pregnancy is only one of Hannah's troubles. Her beloved father has died suddenly from a freak accident, and her mother has retreated into agoraphobia; Hannah must care for her feeble and self-absorbed Mama just when she needs mothering herself. When she hides in Milo's car and overhears him having sex with his old girlfriend, her world finally collapses. A psychotic break lands her in a mental hospital for juveniles, and she begins the long step-by-step process of putting the pieces of her life back together with the help of a compassionate young therapist.
Louise Plummer, whose previous young adult novels have been sparkling romantic comedies (The Unlikely Romance of Kate Bjorkman), here gets serious in a warm and engrossing story that carries the teen-pregnancy novel to new heights beyond the usual clichés. (Ages 12 and older) --Patty Campbell
