Megan finished with her boyfriend, Luke, months ago and is looking forward to the exams being over, going on holiday with her best friend, and freedom. However, in an instant all this changes. In a Personal Development lesson her teacher tells the class: "Of course, it is possible to be pregnant and still have periods." In this moment Megan realises that this means that she could be pregnant--having only missed one period, and this months after she and Luke had done it, she had thought there was nothing to worry about. From the moment Megan realises she could indeed be pregnant, her emotions spiral out of control--how will her friends react? What will happen to her school work, her exams? And, worst of all, what will her mother say?
Mary Hooper treats the difficult subject of teenage pregnancy with sympathy and compassion. For someone who finds herself in the same situation as Megan, the novel is supportive, informative and encouraging in that it calmly portrays the options available, the involvement of the social services and the help available to a teenage mother. However, it in no way glamorises the reality of under-age sex and pregnancy. Megan is a cautionary tale to all teenagers, showing how easy it is for a girl to get pregnant and the consequences for the rest of that girl's life and the difficult decisions she will have to make. (Ages 12 and up) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Needless to say this series did not let my high expectations down, it is an excellent story, Hooper rly conveys the true feelings one might feel having discovered ur pregnant at such a tender age. She captures a whole host of emotions and the reader will be immediately drawn in and the excitement of the story never falls! This series is not just about pregnancy and the responsibilites that come with it; it is also about a normal girl caught up in a world which brings many obstacles and the way in which she has to cope and overcome these and what this leads to.
I can not highly enough praise this series- if you're interested in teenage pregnancy then the series is an excellent start although if you are pregnant yourself it would help to get a more practical help guide as well. And if you're just looking for a really good read then you've found one. If you're looking to give a book/series as a gift to your teenage girls in your life then I am almost certain they will love it and love you for showing them Megan's world.
It actually surprises me to say that I haven't re-read the series since that night because I have been enjoying many many other excellent books out there but I do so hope to read this series soon and I am sure I will keep it and give it to my daughter(s) if I have any.Read more ›
