This book is so gripping, it sets a really good example to youngsters telling them the concequences of common teenage mistakes. I read it to my 8 year old daughter and she loved it, while learning about the facts of life. I loved reading the book, and so has everybody i've leant it to. i strongly recommend the book to adults and teenagers as it is an excellent and exciting book. It is very emotional and strong, and gives out mixed emotions. If you haven't read it, then read it!

Tango, school drop-out and no-hoper finally gets Crystal to go out with him. They fall in love and 15 year old Crystal gets pregnant. Tango tries to provide for his new family and make them happy but he learns this is hard as you can imagine it would be for someone his age. This novel dispels all romantic notions of teenage pregnancy. It is hard hitting, uncompromising and gritty...just like reality. A real eye-opener for any young person who thinks teenage sex and love is trendy and romantic. I recommend you give this to your teenage daughters and even teenage sons so they can get a bit of an idea how difficult it is to raise a child, especially when your still one yourself.
