Plan B by Charman Simon-ADVISABLE.

Plan B (Surviving Southside)Simon, Charman, Plan B. Darbycreek, 2011. Pgs. 104. Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: PG-13

Lucy and Luke has been dating for over 8 months. They plan to go to the same college together, get married, and start a life together. Things change, however, when Lucy ends up getting pregnant. Lucy is afraid to tell her boyfriend for fear that he’ll leave her. She’s worried what her mother will think. Will she keep the baby?

A great book that doesn’t put rose-colored glasses on the issue of teen pregnancy. The plot is believable. The characters are realistic and easy to relate to. Readers who like urban fiction, school stories, and relationship fiction will enjoy reading this book. MS. HS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
