Review:

Lizzie has always been the sensible one, the one that never rocks the boat but she finds herself at almost eighteen, pregnant and unsure what to do. This story follows the different paths that she could take and shows what the outcomes could be.

Now this book brought up a lot of emotions for me, as at eighteen on the verge of going to University much like Lizzie, I also found out I was pregnant with my son. It opened up a lot of issues I had at the time. Could I have had an abortion or given him up for adoption? The answer to that was no and I’ve no regrets (well going to University the year after he was born is one but we live and we learn) but would I have liked to know the different outcomes, hell yes!

The book is quite short, around two hundred pages, then split into different sections, each starting with Lizzie receiving a phone call from a different person. First, her younger sister Sal, then her mum, then her boyfriend Mike, then her her best friend Shona. It was interesting to see each outcome changed slightly by whoever she told.

Lizzie is a likeable character, even though she is a little self involved, she’s very naive and easily led. She had quite a complicated relationship with her mum, wanting her to take change but feeling that she was overbearing at the same time.

In one of the sections, Lizzie has her baby and this really reminded me of when I first had my son. The author really captures the feelings tiredness, loneliness and isolation of being a young mum sometimes especially if you have no friends with kids. The only thing it was missing was the looks and snide comments that I used to get.

This book covers a very sensitive subject and the ending is a little ambiguous so it won’t be for everyone. But if you give it a try it will really tug on the old heart strings and you will root for Lizzie no matter what her decision is.

Overall an emotionally absorbing book that I think teenagers and parents alike should read.

Rating: 4/5
