By I Read, Therefore I Blog VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
15-year-old Hannah and her best friend Katie are both known at school for getting off with boys but Hannah always uses condoms, which is why she’s so surprised to discover that she’s pregnant. An argument with Katie ensures that the news goes viral among her school and it isn’t long before her classmates are trying to guess who the baby daddy is. However, although Hannah knows exactly who the father is, she doesn’t know how to tell him and doesn’t know how to handle all the judgmental speculation.

Help comes in the form of new student Aaron, who’s happy to pretend to be the father but as the two draw closer, they discover that they each have secrets and they each need to work out what really matters to them … and what they really want.

Non Pratt’s debut YA novel is a charming, funny contemporary tale that takes the well worn subject of teen pregnancy and puts a fresh, witty spin on it. It’s refreshing to read a book where the teenage girl likes sex and talks about it in empowering terms and I liked the friendship between Aaron and the grumpy pensioner Neville, particularly the way it’s not built on instant openness. The dialogue is spot on – most notably in the scenes between Katie and Hannah – and there’s a lot of humour here, particularly in Hannah’s ironic, self-deprecating voice. If I have any complaint it’s that there are a couple of places where the pacing slips and I’d have liked a firmer resolution to the storyline involving Hannah and the baby’s father. That said though, this is a strong, entertaining debut and I will definitely read her next book.

The narrative is split between Aaron and Hannah and Pratt has given them both great (but individual) voices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad I took the chance on Trouble! 8 Jan. 2015
Format:Paperback
I’ll be honest, Trouble never really captured my attention until I went to an author Q&A/signing when Non Pratt visited Birmingham close to the end of 2014. It was then that I became more aware of the book and noticed the high praises. I adore YA contemporary but sometimes when something different comes along – like Trouble appeared to be – I hesitate. I start worrying if it’s going to be any good and if I’m going to enjoy it. I guess you could say I just needed a push in the right direction and going to the author signing was definitely the push I needed.

Trouble is Non Pratt’s debut novel and what an amazing story it is. After just a few pages I was quickly hooked and I found myself quickly devouring the story. Problem was, I was buddy reading the story with a fellow Goodreads friend and I had to force myself to slow down so I didn’t finished it within a matter hours. I just wanted to unravel the story because I found myself completely hooked by Aaron and Hannah’s stories.

Told from both Aaron and Hannah’s prospective, we first meet Hannah who enjoys going out with friends and getting drunk every weekend. It’s clear that Hannah is trying to get over a boy because she gets drunk to distract herself and tries to find comfort in any other boy’s arms. But when Hannah discovers she’s pregnant – at fifteen – Hannah needs someone in her corner because once she tells her parents, she knows she’s going to be in trouble when she reveals who the real father is.

Aaron – new boy at school – tries to fit in with the new crowd of friends but finds it difficult because of the difficulties he’s trying to overcome. It’s clear something terrible has happened to him but he blames no-one but himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 22 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Synopsis

Hannah is 15 and pregnant. She doesn’t know what to do. She doesn’t want to say who the father is. She would rather people think that she is a slut and sleeps around than reveal that. However, new boy and fellow classmate Aaron offers to pretend to be the father. Hannah doesn’t know why he has done it but they both agree to keep her secret.

Review

Being that there is less than two weeks left of the year I was fairly certain that I had chosen my favourite book of the year and then I picked up Trouble. I had planned on reading it to vet it for the library in the school in which I work. They wanted to know if it was appropriate for both upper and lower school. Little did I know that I would be blown away. This book – Trouble – is amazing.

Not only is it an accurate representation of teenagers (believe me, I know, I’ve worked with them for nearly seven years) but it is such a clever, unusual and dramatic tale. One that had me drop a few f-bombs as I realised what was about to happen, get angry at characters and actually yearn to protect our protagonist, Hannah.

There are only a few books that I can name that have ever had that response from me. This is when I know I am reading something special. I also know a book is good if I can read it in one sitting…which I did.

Trouble is a book that all kids should read. Ok, some could see it as scaremongering other somewhat promiscuous teens to not get themselves pregnant (remember guys – no glove, no love) but the way I read this story was that a young articulate girl finds herself in a situation way beyond her experience and proves herself to be strong and indestructible by the bitchy cohorts in her peer groups whilst realising who her true friends are.
