The Lit Report (YA) (5/5)


The Lit Report (YA) 5/5

Julia's best friend Ruth gets pregnant. Julia is a great list-maker and decides that she will walk Ruth through her pregnancy, make sure it stays hidden from her overly religious parents, deliver the baby and then leave it at the church of Ruth's parents. Of course sometimes the best laid plans don't happen. Julia, Ruth and the supporting characters of Julia's parents, Miki and Jonah are great. Readers will care about these characters. I enjoyed the literary references throughout the book. I could definitely relate to Julia.
