I read this book junior year in high school in AP Lang. It's charming, honest, and funny. Even though it was required reading, I enjoyed it.

The book is written on an elementary level. The dialogue is extremely cheesy and predictable. I was frustrated at the lack of depth in the characters. Cute story, but not recommended if you're over the age of 11.

The book wasn't at all what I expected. It focused primarily on the parents and their reactions and why it was such a big "problem" for them. When I began to read this book, I thought it would be more focused on the girls themselves and their emotions and reasoning behind wanting to get pregnant. The prose was at times long, irrelevant, and boring but overall it was an easy read and somewhat entertaining.
