WoW is brought to you by Jill at Breaking the Spine I changed the idea bit, I feature books that have yet to be released or books that are already out that I just really want (but can't buy or they are not at my library).
So I'm Waiting to read....
Choices by Katrina L. B Burchett 2007
Five teenage girls make decisions about boyfriends and premarital sex.... Shauntice Johnston lives in a world of domestic abuse. Her dad beats her mom, so she doesn't trust guys. Angel Nichols feels neglected by her workaholic mother and she has no idea who her father is; she started having sex for the attention. LaKeeta Wilson is pregnant and she got that way on purpose. Bridgette Anderson feels very strongly about abstinence and nobody is going to change her mind. Hope Patterson lives a sheltered life because of her mother's strict rules. The word sex isn't in her vocabulary until she suffers a loss.
The topic of sex is really important for teens and it's something we are bombarded with almost daily. I'm especially curious to read Choices to find out why someone would intentionally get pregnant. Also Ms. Burchett is a new YA author of color and I want to support her!
