This book really documented this young mothers experience with adoption. Throughout the whole book it was almost like you could actually feel her pain. The boom was well written and heartfelt. The only thing I didn't like was that it was sad and a little depressing, but the message she gave was clear. I think this book will really help young girls.

I loved reading about Ashley's life. My husband and I adopted our youngest son when he was just 6 weeks old! This book helped me to understand what my sons birth mother went through...she loved him with all her heart, but knew she couldn't provide for him. Ashley, you did the most loving, caring and bravest thing for Callie. Don't listen to anyone who says any differently....let them walk a mile in your shoes before they judge you!

This book was something that I had been interested in reading for a while. It is eye opening and inspiring. Ashley is brave and selfless, I am in awe of her. I believe every teen girl should read this before they even think about having sex. It is the honest truth. READ IT!!!! It is worth the time!!!!!!

I'd recommend the book to all teens.
It is a great read where you experience with this young lady what turmoil she had to deal with because of her unplanned pregnancy.
I personally would never choose adoption, but I understand why she chose that option.
Cheers to her for making such a selfless decision.

I loved this book because it's 100% real and I can feel what Ashley was going through. I can also relate to Ashley because I am a teen mom myslef and I know what it's like to go through such hard times in life.. It's a very good book to read and be able to see it through someone else's point of view. It gets the point across that teen pregnancy is NOT glamorous in any way and hopefully it'll help other teens learn from Ashley's story so that they don't have to go through this.

Personally I don't know how you could ever give your baby up for adoption but in the end I think Ashley made a good choice. I would recommend this book who is pregnant and is struggling to decide weather to have an adoption or to keep the child.

Good book! I really enjoyed it and it provided a better insight into the life of a girl I didn't much get to know during the show.
