Annie is a fourteen year old girl who fell for a guy named Danny like a magnet. At first he was very kind and sincere but he often whould physically abuse her. In Annie's diary she pours out all her pain and sorrow. I felt Annie was an innocent kid who knew nothing better but to continue going with Danny even after each terrible incident. When Annie discovers she is pregnant she doesn't know what to do. She is scared to tell her mom or Danny. Who wouldn't be? Eventually Annie tells Danny and he he tells her to go pout to all the other guys she messes around with. Soon Annie gets up the courage to tell her mother, who does nothing but comefort Annie. Annie decides she won't get an abortion. She prepares for a small baby in her home. As soon as the baby is born Annie finds out how much work a baby is. Can Annie get her life together? This book is good for any person, teen through adult, because it deals with a real problem that many teens go through.

"Annie's Baby" is supposedly a real teenage mum's diary but it obviously the creation of psychiatrist Beatrice Sparks in an attempt to deal with the subject of teen sex and pregnancy in a way which teens will relate to. Written in the same style as "Go Ask Alice" and "It Happened to Nancy" and in a diary format, it begins when Annie meets Danny. At 16, he is two years older, has his own car, and hangs around with a different crowd. She instantly falls in love with him and despite the fact that he is violent towards her, she doesn't seem to think it's wrong because "everyone is doing it". When she becomes pregnant by Danny he is typically unsupportive and uncaring. Her mother, when told, is unrealistically supportive and willing to help (for a more realistic attitude from a parent, read Mary Hooper's "Megan") and Annie changes to a school for teenage mothers. When the baby is born, Annie finds out how much work it is to have a child. Can she handle the responsibility?

When I bought this book it was out of boredom. I was in Kmart and I walked by the books. I hadn't read in ages but considering that it was summer and I was really bored so I stopped to look at the book. I hadn't even intended on buying one but I saw it and I flipped through the pages and saw that it was like a diary and diary books were always my favorite when I used to be a big reader so I threw it and one other book--that I have yet to read--into my moms shopping cart. Since we were 100 miles from home shopping at the mall the Kmart we had stopped at was 100 miles from home too so one the way home I started reading 'Annie's Baby' By the time we pulled up in the drive way I only liked 20 pages to the end of the book. I finished it that night and it was the best ever. I only wish I could find another book that could interest me that much.

What really scared me about this book was that I could have easily been Annie. I am not allowed to date at the moment and i would probably do the things Annie did to get what she wanted. Annie was totally blinded by her love for Danny and she could not see what danger it could lead for her. This book really taught me a lot about life. It taught me that just because you are in love with someone does not mean they are in love with you. I recommend this book for all teenagers out there. This is an excellent book.

I just completed "Annie's Baby" less than ten minutes ago, and was so disgusted with its amateurish attempts at 15-year-old vernacular that I rushed over to the computer. And, yes, I AM in a position to comment -- I am, actually and truly, 15 years old. First, plain and simple, nobody talks like that. Writing, maybe, but when the suppposed "tape transcripts" were added in? Not only did the syntax of the words not line up, the "conversations" were never meant to be spoken. (I won't even mention that the Q&A at the end of the book, supposedly informative, held many of the same writing styles as the body of the text.) Second, Annie manages to experience a textbook case of every symptom of low self-esteem, depression, abuse, and every other blight associated with teenage pregnancy known to man, not to mention that she is, and is surrounded by, one-dimensional characters that could never exist in real life. I'm sorry that this second attempt at a novel is so poor, since I loved 'Go Ask Alice" (whether it is fiction or not.) At best "Annie" is an amalgam of several actual girls who have gone through a teenage pregnancy, put together shabbily by the author. Dr. Sparks better hope that her readers are as stupid as she has made her heroine out to be.

The first thing I have to say is that for anyone thinking this is a true story, it isn't. The style of the writing matches that of all the other books Beatrice Sparks has "edited", and is fairly unrealistic for a teenager.
The story, however, is believable, if a little over-dramatic, and ends happily, which is not always the case. There is some depth, but not enough, and it is quite preachy.
