    OMG!!!!Looovvveedd it sooooooo much!o

    I can't really look at this book and think, 'Yes-this was written for Young Adults.' Although the plot of the book-a teenager falling pregnant-was good, the characters and writing made it fall flat. The writing seemed bland as if the author had no idea where she was going with the book, and Amy had the personality of a wooden spoon.Credit where credit is due though, the author didn't hold back from some of the more sensitive parts of the book. The birth scene was quite well written, and she defi [...]

    Overall, this was a nice, little read about families, relationships and teenage pregnancies. While I liked Amy and felt sorry for her, her naivety did frustrate me. I found it difficult to believe that a modern sixteen year-old girl would not know she was pregnant. However, I did find myself cheering for her and Robbie. There were some good secondary characters in this book including Amy's neighbours Mr and Mrs Kelly, their foster child, Shaun, and Mr Smith, Amy's form teacher, but my favourite [...]

    A mediocre soup. Fills the urge to read but doesn't impress. The writing improves during the half way point of the book.Although the subject of the plot is interesting, I agree with other reviewers that Amy's personality isn't very compelling. [spoiler]I also detest her high exam results. Very Mary Sue.[/spoiler] This is probably why the 'soup' feels like it has too much water and not enough stock.

    When i found this book in whsmith with my dad the other day i read the blurb and it sounded really exciting i started to read it a a week or so after we bought it i was amazed at it's brilliant it gave me a lot more than i thought it would. Tells you about how hard caring for someone with a illness is. I hope this author writes more. Found myself reading the whole book in a day was so gripped.

    3 StarsA decent contemp read - but it feels like the sort of simplistic, slightly childish UK YA that was being written ten years ago, compared with the increasingly sophisticated, clever YA of today.


  • Lisa

    I enjoyed it but it felt predictable from the beginning. Very emotional but that is understandable given the protagonists situation. It carried on a bit which became a drag to read but it was tied up nicely.

    Amy at Usborne recommended another cracker of a read. It started slow and I had seen a few people's partial reviews and for a short while I agreed with them. But once I got stuck in I was hooked and wanted to know the outcome.


  • Georgia (The Bibliomaniac Book Blog)

    Very enjoyable read that tugs on heartstings but warmed my heart too, with that ending :) I disliked a few little parts, but overall, it was a really good contemporary debut! Looking forward to hearing more from Helen.


  • Eleanor

    This book was really good and I would recommend it to people that like heart warming books.Helen Brandom


  • Kirsty

    Not gripping me at this point. Will come back to at another point.


  • Robyn
