This review is from: Little Wing (Paperback)
I have really enjoyed reading this book. I was really drawn into the character of Emily, but also into all the surrounding characters - her boyfriend Matt, Martin and Pete etc. The writer writes in a way that really allows you to get right into the story like it's a real situation you're watching as a film. The story is about Emily who has a baby and then has postnatal depression, and so she leaves her baby and goes to stay with a family friend. It's about her very gradual recovery and the life she leads whilst away from home, and the new people she meets. The book is very real and does not try to dress up the issue of postnatal depression. It's an interesting take on teenage pregnancy, particularly considering a lot of books about it make it all seem happy with a great ending. This book is good for older teenagers, but I certainly think adults would enjoy it too. It's a quick read, but certainly not light reading!
