Comments Too Bad About the Haines Girl

  • Elizabeth

    A teen pregnancy melodrama from the 1960s. Well written but oh so highly moralistic as in keeping with the times. The moral of this book, which is made quite explicit, is "if you get pregnant, you let down your whole family." I remember being puzzled by that when I was reading the book in 8th or 9th grade -- as if pregnancy were like failing the SATs or crashing the family car.


  • Shelley

    Story of a 17 year old in 1967 who gets pregnant and has to decide what to do. I think it only took place over the span of a week - from admitting it to her boyfriend to finally telling her parents. Total melodrama, totally moralistic, and managed to make it seem that the worst thing about her getting pregnant was the shame she brought onto her family. I just hope she managed to make a good life for herself at some point.

    This is an older book but it tells everyhting you would read in a modern day book without all the silly drama.

    I found this book very sad and disturbing!
