What I Read #38

Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky: Four prominent women in town are best friends. Three of the four have daughters that announce that they are pregnant. They are seventeen, seniors in high school, and destined for college next fall.
These are girls who have been nurtured, loved and taught right from wrong. How could this be happening?
Will the town turn against the girls and blame the mothers? Will lives be ruined?

This is a poignant story of a mother's love. Though it is fiction, it is happening today in our society. Once again, Barbara Delinsky comes through with using her writing skills to bring to light another of societies problems. This is one book that should be on every Mom's reading list; Dad's too. It speaks of parental love in the most realistic manner. A good read!

Happy Reading,
