This is a sharply observed, bittersweet tale of the trials of teenage pregnancy. Lana Spiggs is fed up with everyone telling her what to do. If it isn't her mother nagging and shouting, it's her teachers nagging and shouting. What Lana wants is to be grown-up. She wants her own flat, her own husband and her own children - and then no one will be able to boss her around any more. When Lana meets Les on her fifteenth birthday, she knows he is The One. And when she gets pregnant without even trying, she knows it's her ticket to freedom - even though everyone else calls it a prison sentence. But can her dream of Happy Families stand up to reality? By turns funny and hard-hitting, this is expressive and accessible teen fiction - teenage girls will find it utterly compelling. It sensitively deals with an important and difficult subject, without ever becoming moralistic or patronizing. It is both infuriating and endearing, Dyan Sheldon's heroine is always feisty and entertaining.
