From the Author
This case sparked a debate about how parents and their teenagers fail to communicate about sex and the dangerous consequences that can result. It also was the case that prompted states to begin passing so-called "Safe Haven" laws, permitting mothers to drop off their unwanted infants at designated safe zones like hospitals. Planned Parenthood listed this book as recommended reading for high school students, and I have traveled around speaking to high schools about the case and how the tragedy could have been avoided with one conversation.
