One of my favorite things about Sarah Dessen is how realistic she can be when it comes to how it felt to be a teenager. Its something that I think we tend to forget as adults, but reading one of her books really brings me back to how it all was. In fact, I would say that any parent to a teenage girl would be wise to pick up some Dessen as a method to better understanding their daughter.

Although Scarletts pregnancy is certainly an important part of this book, the story is shown from Halleys perspective. This gives a great insight into what its like for a teenager going through a lot of different things high school is hard enough when everything is as normal as possible, let alone dealing with your best friend being pregnant, and having your first relationship with a bad boy.
