Teen Pregnancy Books...please Read

Hey everyone! I know that im pretty much the only book worm in here, but I have read a few teen pregnancy books too. And I would like to tell you about them so maybe you can read them too! If you do its alot easier to relate to it, than reading other books.

The best one for all of you- detour for emmy, by marylin reynolds.

Emmy's carefree days are enlivened by friends, time at the beach, anticipation of the new school year, and dreams of college. Longing for the affection and understanding that she doesn't get at home, emmy is propelled into the arms of overachiever, chorus star, and school hero arturo. Art promises that he will never hurt her, and their sexual relationship proceeds idyllically and explicitly, complete with birth control. One night, they make love without protection; as a result, emmy finds herself on a detour from carefully laid academic plans to the road of teen pregnancy and single motherhood. The hardship, tedium, and responsibility of parenting and the pain of deferred dreams provide a strong, if sometimes didactic, message to sexually active yas. (this is very good because it tells how she struggles with the dad and does it alone, leaving her feelings for arturo to fade because he wasnt a good father)

baby help-by marylin reynolds

being a teen mom, living with your boyfriend and his mother, and trying to finish high school are even more difficult when your boyfriend is physically and verbally abusive and his mother claims it's your fault. This is melissa fisher's life--a life she accepts until boyfriend rudy begins the same abusive patterns with two-year-old cheyenne. True to other books in her hamilton high series

what kind of love-by sheila cole

is a diary about two people in love with each other. Valerie falls in love with peter, and she thinks peter loves her too. Then valerie notices that she has not had her period for three months so she decides to try a home pragnancy tester. Valerie, fifteen,is now well aware that she is pragnant. Peter purposes and they together try to get married. Both of their parents think it is an outragous idea. Peter's parents forced him to go to los angeles to graduate. Will valerie get married and give birth to a baby at age fifteen? How will their strict parents take the idea of them getting married and having a baby? Well, I guess you will just have to read the book to find out what happens!

Too soon for jeff-marylin reynolds
the realities of teenage sexuality are portrayed in this story of jeff browning and his girlfriend christy. They have been together for a year, and he has just decided that he needs more independence and time to spend with his friends. He is a high school senior looking forward to a promising college career in debate. When christy reveals that she is pregnant, life changes drastically. Jeff is outraged that she often "forgot" to take the pill, and insists on an abortion. The young woman protests, and has the baby, hoping jeff will stay with her. His family is angry, but supportive, while christy's beligerent father makes the situation worse. Unlike many teenage fathers, jeff does finally take responsibility for his son and learns to balance college life with fatherhood. Believable characters and an easy-to-read text will make this an appealing story that emphasizes the consequences and responsibilities of sexual behavior among young people
