    An Important Must Read

    First, I want to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire for the chance to read an advanced copy of this book. A beautiful story about a difficult subject. This book is very hard to review without revealing some spoilers. So I am going to warn in advance that there will be some spoilers in this. Once upon a time, a long time ago back when they were in Girl Scout Mellie Rivers and Lise Grant were friends. Though they were very young when Mellie's parents took he out of Girl Scouts because one of the girls had two Dads Lise never stopped feeling as if Mellie was her friend. So many years later when the girls are sixteen and Lise notices that something terrible is going on with Mellie she sets out to do what she can to help her. It seems Mellie has been raped and has fallen pregnant. Mellie is from an extremely religious family and he Father also happens to be Mayor. She is frightened and lost, feeling like there is no way out and beginning to become more and more desperate she needs help but has no one she can go to. Lise may be the one person in the whole school who can actually help Mellie but by doing so she risks everything she holds dear. WIll she risk everything to help a girl whom she really has had no contact with in ages? Told through journal entries assigned by a teacher we see the growth of the friendship between these two girls. We learn their fears and hopes. Their secret thoughts. This is a story that could happen anywhere and to anyone. It is a brave and lovely book that moved me in too many ways even count. As the author stated at the end we may not be aware of this but we all more than likely know someone who went through something like this. Is this book Pro-Choice? Yes, it is but it is also Pro-Life. The life of the person going through this. I think every girl should read this. Thank you again for allowing me to read an advanced copy of the wonderfully written book.

    So, before I get into my review for this book I just want to say that there are some trigger warnings. There is talk about rape, abortion, bullying and verbal abuse. When I read the description of the book I was really interesting in to see where it was going to go. I have to say after reading the book, I was shocked. I really enjoyed this book. It is told in duel POV’s Sixteen year old Mellie comes from a very conservative family. So you can image what happened when she found out that she was pregnant. Mellie isn’t sure what she wants to do. She has always believed that having an abortion was was wrong but she knew she didn’t want to give the baby up to someone else. Lise is Mellie’s friend, when she finds out that her friend pregnant she try’s to help her out. This book was told in a journal entry in Lise and Mellie’s English class. I thought that was an interesting to the story. I was a tad confused at first because I thought it was all from Mellie not just her and Lise. I given this book as an Arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
