This could have been a good book. The story line seemed very interesting. But alas, it's told from the point of view of one of the mothers. The mother is a high school principal who can't believe her 17 year-old daughter is pregnant even when the daughter tells her she took 6 tests, all positive. I'd love to see the high school principal who is so sheltered. Not to mention, I don't think Barbara Delinsky has any idea of what being a high school principal is like. It's a full time job - they don't leave @ 10:00 to go chat w/ friends, no matter what. The character is ludicrous.
All the parents constantly talk about how the pregnancies affect them. The first question - will they lose their jobs? Is it 1950???? The superintendent of the school district comes and asks the principal if her daughter had a boyfriend, was it just a mistake, is the girl using protection? Ridiculous.
The characters are plastic and stereotypical. I'm not even going to finish.

This book got more and more annoying as it went on. I generally like Cassandra Cambell's narrations, but her Maine accents are all over the place and kind of painful to listen to.
