Book Description

Cry, Baby tells the story of Charlie, a fifteen-year-old girl in her last year of high school. Discovering she is pregnant following a one night stand, Charlie is almost certain she is not ready to be a mother. She agonises over the decision of whether to keep the baby, knowing that only she can make the right choice for her. Will she bow to peer pressure and how will she cope when an even bigger decision comes her way?

Cry, Baby is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style.

Cry, Baby is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Heartfelt Novel in So Few Pages 29 Aug. 2011
By Paula L. Phillips - Published on
Teen Pregnancies are such a huge issue that as each day passes by , it's becoming more and more common in today's society.Cry Baby is a book that is targeted at those with the low reading abilities as its a teen book that is easy to read , big print and not too many words per page. Cry Baby tells the story of Charlie aka Charlotte whose fifteen years old , it follows as a diary format from the day she went to a party with her best friends, to sleeping with a guy and as you read it - you can see that it wasn't consensual as Charlie was drunk and wasted . To the result of ending up pregnant with his baby. Charlie scared and alone visits an abortion clinic with the premise of having an abortion. We read as she toys with the idea and then eventually tells her parents what has happened, scared out of her mind - her parents eventually come round to the idea and we see Charlie and her parents making the way to prepare for the baby. However , tragedy will strike Charlie as the baby is born a still birth - will this push her over the edge or was it meant to be ?
Find out in this heart-wrenching book that is a quick read but packs alot of heartbreak , pain and raw emotions into the few pages. In a way I found this novel similar to Go Ask Alice and Dear Nobody. I highly recommend this novel for anyone wanting to read about Teen pregnancies and what can/may happen.
