Marilyn Reynolds is my new favorite author! Her books capture teen issues, and all of them are so realistic. When I saw this book in the library, I decided to read it. It was the first book by Marilyn Reynolds I ever read.
'Baby Help' is the story of seventeen-year-old Melissa, who struggles with her two-year-old, Cheyenne, and her abusive boyfriend. Melissa loves Rudy, her boyfriend and the father of Cheyenne, but Rudy hits Melissa. He has for a long time, but nobody's perfect, right? That's what Melissa says, but she can't stand the fact that Rudy is so cruel. But when Rudy really hurts her, Melissa and Cheyenne go to a shelter for battered women.
This is a page-gripping, powerful story of how a teen Mom deals with her abusive lover. I reccomend this for ages 12-90! This book is great!
