Wonderful book about a girl who doesn't seem to fit in any place. The daughter of overprotective parents who have planned her life for her without much consideration of what she wants. However, she becomes involved with the bad boy at school and they fall in love. She becomes pregnant and their families tear them apart. She decides to have an open adoption with a family she picks. This too creates chaos for everyone involved. She finally gets her life together and everyone's life turns to chaos again. Her, her parents, the daughter she gave up, the adoptive parents who ran away, and the father to her daughter...whom she still loves.

Absolutely unputdownable. A very well written book with an interesting premise, that of an open adoption that goes wrong; the best of intentions of all the concerned parties converge in chaos, heartbreak, and ultimately - redemption. Recommended!
