Grade 9 Up—Angel Hansen, 17, has been in love with Danny Stanton for what seems like a lifetime. When he rejects her at an end-of-summer blowout party, the drunk teen ends up having a one-night stand with someone else, which results in her becoming pregnant. Beginning with that fateful night, journal-style entries take readers on the 10-month journey that Angel must make as she defies all odds and decides to keep the baby. She finds an unexpected ally in Danny, who walks away from his jock image to step into the role of boyfriend/replacement father. While the story moves along at a fairly rapid pace, there are times when the characters are somewhat puzzling, such as Danny suddenly shifting his feelings for Angel. This first-person narrative offers a vivid portrait of the dark side of fleeting hookups and teen pregnancy. It will resonate with older teens.—Caryl Soriano, New York Public Library
