Jumping Off Swings (YA)

Jumping Off Swings (YA)

Ellie, a high school student, gets pregnant after a one night stand with Josh.  She plans on having an abortion but she cannot go through with it.  Ellie then decides to give up the baby for adoption.  This book is told by multiple narrators:  Ellie, Josh, Ellie's best friend Corinne and Josh's friend Caleb.  These four detail how this unplanned pregnancy affects all parties, including the parents of those involved.  This is a powerful book but not necessarily an easy read.  This book is a good show of YA realistic fiction and is a quick read.  I enjoyed the multiple points of view and the fact that this book was extremely real.
