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.

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.
