Read this! Me, him, them, and it by Caela Carter

by: 
Chandra, Belmar Library

Me: Evelyn, a high school junior, first in her class, just visited Planned Parenthood to get birth control so her boobs will get bigger. 

Him: Todd, Evelyn's not-exactly-boyfriend. 

Them: The Stranger and The Lawyer, otherwise known as Evelyn's father and mother. Neither talks to her.

It: The fetus. Specifically, the fetus inside Evelyn.

 

Evelyn only found out she was pregnant because Planned Parenthood required her to take a pregnancy test before they'd give her birth control pills. Now she has 39 days to decide whether to get an abortion or keep the baby. Todd's no help, and she can't talk to her distant and fighting parents.
