Series: Megan #1
Publication Date: 1999
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Format: Paper back
Genre: Young Adult,
Rating: 4 out of 5
Synopsis from back cover
Megan is fifteen. One day she finds out in the worst possible way, the worst possible news - she is pregnant.
What will she do?
How will her friends react?
How will her ex-boyfriend react?
How will her mum react?
Megan, the first book in the Megan trilogy, tells the story of 15 year old Megan Warrell. Megan has just found out that she is pregnant and has no idea what she should do. Megan has confided in her best friend Claire, but isn't sure if she should her ex-boyfriend, Luke, and her mother. Although Megan does tell Luke, it's the reaction from her mother that hurts her the most.
I don't want to give too much away, but this is a must read for every teenage girl. Although I am far from being a teenage girl, I am a parent of a teenage girl and I have often wondered how I would react in this situation, hopefully better that Megan's mother did.
This is a quick read that grips the reader from the very beginning. Mary Hooper has created characters that, at times, I felt really sorry for.
