Teen's Fake Pregnancy Fools School
Good Last Book?
I wouldn't reccomend this book as a last book because It's not all that great. It is however, interesting enough to pass your time durring SSR.
Why I read it
I read this book because the concept of a teen faking a pregnancy seemed like an odd concept and I wanted to see how it would play out.
Must include the following:
- 3 things you loved (explain).
- 2 things you did not like about the book (explain).
- 1 connection you made with the text.
- Favorite Quote w/page number. (Make sure you actually find the quote in the book and NOT on the Internet.)
- Recommendation: Would you recommend it? Why? Who would you recommend it to?
I would reccomend this book to someone with nothing to read and need something for SSR. I would not reccomend it looking for a last book
Things I Loved
This was a good book and I liked a few things. One of the main ones being that she went through with the project. She pushed through all of the hate and didn't quit when it got hard. I also liked the plot. Often times when you have a true story, there isn't a good plot to it, however this definetly had a plot and was a good story. Lastly I liked that it was true, this actually happended.
Things I didn't Love
As great as this book is, I didn't like everything. For example, she was afraid of the media and couldn't handle the fame. Also It was really sad when her dad left her.
