Bertagna's clever use of perspective enables a male reader to empathise with a young girl in a situation he can never experience - teenage pregnancy. Her relationship with Gil, a young social outcast, leads her into a danger which has disasterous consequences.
The amazing thing about this book was that it made me rethink one of my fundamental beliefs, the immorality of abortion. It is this combination of moral discussion and gripping storytelling that make this book such a success.
