I'm only about half-way through this book. At this point it has earned a "somewhat better than fair" rating. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to make it all the way through to the end...not because of the story, but because of the grammatical errors. Any publisher who releases a book that includes the use of "I" in place of "me," or "through" spelled "threw," just to name a few, should fire the editor. If you are a grammar fanatic, be warned.

I am amazed at the level of interest I had for an ordinary and not at all unusual topic. The entire story was laid out with no surprises, no cliffhangers, no violence and danger, yet the story glued me. Perhaps it is the innate honesty of the double narrators, and the interleaving of two different first person narratives, a mother and daughter several years apart.

The title of the book already gives away the main conflict, an unwanted pregnancy. The main narrator, Sydney, is the one who receives the verdict of the pink line. She has a way of being calm in the eye of a storm, strong and mature about the situation she faces. She makes the right decision for herself and never looks back, even when it meant losing the man she loves.

Granted there is no angst about the happy ending. It was practically presented at the beginning when the daughter, Grace, appears on the scene. Yet, I was still interested to see how the drama would unfold. It was heartwarming how family pulled together, and true love survived. The big hearts of most of the people in the story made me want to hug all of them (except for one character) at the end. I felt as if they had been my friends and I had lived through this experience with them.

I received a complimentary ebook for review purposes.

This was an incredibly moving read.

Sydney had the perfect boyfriend back home but, like many college coeds, she got restless (and drunk) and had a one-night-stand with a boy "friend" that resulted in a pregnancy. Sydney wants to keep the baby but the baby daddy wants nothing to do with either of them.

The author writes from both Sydney's perspective and Grace's (the baby). From Sydney's perspective, we see how she dealt with having a child at such a young age while unmarried and how it affected her relationships with her family and the boyfriend she left at home. From Grace's perspective, we feel her confusion at discovering that the man who raised her is not her birth father and we understand her desire to meet her biological father.

Although the book focused more on Sydney than Grace, I didn't mind as I found Sydney's story more compelling. I especially enjoyed the complex relationship between Sydney and her mother. I initially disliked Sydney's mother but loved the way the author redeemed her once Grace was born. While I thought Ethan was a bit too good to be true, I also loved him and was touched by his loyalty to Sydney.

I did have a few issues with the book. For one, Sydney's sister Kendra, who was such a big part of Sydney's life, was not mentioned once in the Grace segments. The only relatives mentioned in Grace's segments were from her birth father's side. I found mentions of Nanna Lynne and Aunt Sharon a bit confusing in Grace's segments since the author did not explain who they were until much later in the story. Also, while I was happy with how things turned out, I would've enjoyed a more drawn-out ending. Finally, *Spoiler altert* - I wished the author had explained why Taylor told Sydney that Ethan had reunited with Robin when it was not true. Was it a purposeful lie or just a miscommunication?

In sum, however, this was a very compelling read. I would definitely read more from this author.

I have to say, the Kindle's advertising scheme worked on me. I kept seeing the ad for this book pop up and, wanting something that was more of an easy read, I finally decided to give it a try. I wish I hadn't. I gave it two stars because it's not on the level of a couple of the one star reviews I've given, but it was a pretty poor book.

First of all, I read the one review that said "great for young adults and adults alike" which confused me as to whether it was YA or not. To find out that it isn't is frankly kind of depressing. The writing style and vocabulary were far more reminiscent of a YA novel. I can't believe it has ratings this high as a book marketed to adults.

**SPOILERS AHEAD:

Second, I found story to be very preditable. I expect a certain amount of predictability in a story like this, but there also has to be an element of surprise to keep the reader interested. I will say that this book is very readable, but disappointing. I kept thinking something exciting would happen, but nothing ever did. There was absolutely no climax. I believe the whole ordeal with Kevin suing for partial custody was supposed to be a climactic event, but it just seemed tacked on and pointless. There was nothing leading up to this point that suggested this would be a logical next step in the story, and the resolution of it was very, very anticlimactic and boring. The whole thing seemed very contrived.

Third, I found every one of the characters in this story, with the possible exception of Sydney, to be very weak and poorly developed. Throughout the story, only three of Sydney's close friends are ever given any page time. This is normal - you can't have too many characters - but I would at least expect them to be developed as people.
