In life there will always be choices that have to be made. Do I sneak out? Do I drink this or that? Kara's life is no exception. With an over protective family her new love life seems like a blessing. When a terrible rape leaves Kara pregnant she faces the choice of having a baby or terminating it which is against the beliefs of her religion. Will Kara do what’s right for her or right for the church?

I loved this book and could not put it down. It kept me locked into the terrifying aspect of teen partying and date rape. I will forever be changed and have a better view of the trauma women face all the time. I recommend this book to every teen girl because in some way we will all learn from Kara and her friend's mistakes.

Hot Mess

New York City. Glamor and glitz are what you think of. But when tow teen girls are off to New York for summer internships it turns out to be anything but. The girls must learn to cope with new people and all new life styles in Hot Mess. Will thay ever get the hang of the subway or will they continue to act like tourist? Can they fit in with the A List Crowd? It’s all about to go crazy…

This book was very refreshing. It seems the same things are happening in a lot of teen girl books but this one had new ideas. I became addicted from chapter one and had a hard time putting it down to go to bed. The writing style will really sweep you in…
