    A Two-Time Coretta Scott King Award-winning Author Bobby is your classic urban teenaged boy - impulsive, eager, restless. On his sixteenth birthday he gets some news from his girlfriend, Nia, that changes his life forever. She's pregnant. Bobby's going to be a father. With powerful language and keen insight, Johnson looks at the male side of teen pregnancy as she delves into one man's struggle to figure out what "the right thing" is and then to do it. No matter what the cost.

The Pageturner

New Perspective on Teen Fathers

by The Pageturner on Oct 10, 2008

I got this book at my school's annual book fair and assumed that it was not worth reading (they only have about five books that deal with Black culture). But I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it very much. It kept my interest and I connected to the main character. It opened my eyes and made me think that perhaps there were good fathers out there who happened to be teenagers. Overall, this is a good story for a beginning reader who is about 14 years old, maybe 15. I am making the assumption that the author is a beginning writer so this book would be an appropriate pair for the reader. There are some parts of the book that seem unnecessary, but other than that, it is enjoyable.
