Elisabeth has to make the choice of her life. Seventeen and pregnant: does she sacrifice her dreams for a baby, or do something she’s not sure she can live with? Under pressure from her parents, she’s juggling a boyfriend she’s not sure she can trust, a best friend she keeps pushing away and her own indecision. Something’s got to give. It’s the hardest year she’s ever faced – what choice will she make?

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘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.’ The West Australian

‘… Dianne Wolfer has given honest non-judgemental pictures of the consequences of two different courses of action.’ Magpies

‘Wolfer writes with compassion and honesty allowing the characters to tell their own story.’ Reading Matters
