November Blues by Sharon Draper
Sixteen-year-old November's boyfriend died as a result of hazing when he was attempting to join a school club. Two months after his death November finds out that she is pregnant. This book provides a very realistic look at teenage pregnancy and all that teenage girls go through (i.e. their feelings of how their life will change forever, the reactions of parents and friends, sickness and what their bodies go through, etc). I guess I do think this was a good book, but at times it felt a bit too contrived for me. This book was a CSK Honor book this year. I also forgot to mention that it's a sequel to THE BATTLE OF JERICHO. Right now, my vote is NAY. I would love to hear what others think about this one.
