Another teen pregnancy thing. Or is it? This book is about a girl who's best friend gets pregnant. She struggles with her mother and her new boyfriend, but helps her pregnant friend along the way while learning valuable life lessons.

This is a great book. It may not seem like that interesting or good of a book but if you read it you'll be surprised! I loved this book. It's about a girl named Hallie and her friend who go through many tough times. Her friend Scarlett's boyfriend dies in a motorcycle accident, and they have to go through the sadness of that and there are many other bumps and turns along the way. They realize that sometimes people aren't what they seem like. They realize that though sometimes it seems like your in the worst place you could be in your life but friends will always have your back. And Hallie realizes she is a lot stronger than she thinks she can be... i reconmmend this book.

This book is the best. I read it twice. It makes you cry and it makes you laugh. Sarah Dessen is the best author ever. Once you start reading this book, you won't be able to put it down. I think every teenage a girl should read it and think most of them will enjoyed too!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was so easy for me to relate to and the situations were very realistic. It talked about real issues girls have and it wove these ideas into the story very nicely. I felt like i was getting to know the characters as people and I could understand why the felt the way they did. I would recommend this book to girls ages 12-18.

The storytelling in this book was very good, and the characters came alive easily. But the main character and her friends don't have any morals, and the choices that they make are not inspiring and make for sad reading. All in all, the book is not the best I've ever read, but it was okay.

This is the second of the two books that make up the new movie "How To Deal." From what I can tell, this book makes up the most of the plot, and it's not a very good one. Read it if you want to see what the movie's about, but don't expect any deep revelations.

Possibly the best book I've ever read. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think. This book chronicles a story of a girl aching to get out of her shell and live the life of her best friend, until roles are reversed, she is the strong one while her best friend goes through the tragic death of a boyfriend, the father of her unborn child. Beautiful book that any teen could relate to, whether or not they've gone through the circumstances in the novel. Excellent story and characters.
