Jumping off Swings by Jo Knowles

Wednesday, December 23, 2009
Tells, from four points of view, the ramifications of a pregnancy resulting from a "one-time thing" between Ellie, who feels loved when boys touch her, and Josh, an eager virgin with a troubled home life.

This was a really easy and quick read but was so poignant and gritty. I think all teens should read this to realize the gravity of their decisions. I felt bad for all the teenagers involved because it was a sad situation, and unfortunately it's becoming more and more common these days.

I like the writing of this author and really enjoyed this one, I read it in about three hours. It's a good book and I highly recommend it!
