Told in a nonjudgmental narrative that confronts issues head-on, this story follows 17-year-old Elisabeth who discovers she is pregnant and has a tough choice to make: keep the baby or make alternative arrangements. With parents pressuring her, a boyfriend she cannot trust, a best friend she keeps pushing away, and her own indecision, Elisabeth's dilemma grows more and more difficult. This realistic account of teenage pregnancy addresses the pros and cons of both possible outcomes through the alternating perspectives through Libby, who keeps the baby, and Beth, who does not.

Dianne Wolfer is the award-winning author of Border Line, Lighthouse Girl, and Photographs in the Mud.

"Young adult fiction that manages to deal with a sensitive issue yet doesn't thrust too much teenage anguish upon us . . . A story about change, agency and responsibility, with a pleasant mix of stylistic neatness and thematic uncertainty."  —Sydney Morning Herald

"This novel is written in a manner that is both honest and touching, as it does not attempt to give a fairy-tale ending and is extremely realistic."  —Courier Mail

"Wolfer paints both scenarios so convincingly that this book begs re-reading and discussion. For teenage boys and girls it should be compulsory reading."  —West Australian

"Wolfer has given honest, non-judgemental pictures ofthe consequences of two different courses of action."  —Magpies
