A must read for every girl
Read last year and I still get emotional thinking about this book. This story follows a girl who got pregnant on her very first time having sex, and it now seems that she has to give up all of her dreams because no matter how hard she tries, no matter how many family clinics she visits, she's repeatedly denied an abortion. This was such a heartbreaking, and immensely important read, no matter where you live in the world.
I adore Sharon Biggs Waller and her historical fiction, so I was thrilled when I saw she had a new book coming out, and intrigued that it was contemporary. I wondered it if it could possibly stand up next to her amazing historical -- well, let me assure you, it may even surpass them! It's a slim book, but my oh my does it pack a punch. It is EXACTLY the book young women need right now, with the new, even more restrictive abortion laws some states have passed in 2019. What the young women experience in 2015 Texas will pale in comparison to what women will face if these laws stand up in the courts. Truly, Sharon has written a rallying cry for young women, chock full of straightforward facts to counter the myths and misconceptions we hear too often in the abortion debate. I hope every young adult (and adults, especially parents!) will read this book with an open mind, no matter your political persuasion. This is an extremely important, relevant, and timely book that I want to out in everyone's hands. Thanks to Sharon for writing this!!
