Slam is about teenager pregnancy

Slam - Nick Hornby

Teenager pregnancy from the angle of a teenage dad with a mom who had him when she was 16.

 

Why oh why?

 

This is not boring. It is told from the view of the teenage skateboarder who talked to a poster of his idol instead of a real person.

 

So, is it bad?


Why didn't the girl get an abortion?

 

Don't know. It is a stupid move. And both of them got the responsibility of being parents without really knowing what they are getting themselves into.

 

Still, it is rare to explore this area. So,  it is still readable. 

 

Go for it if teen story is your thing. 

 

If not, skip over this one.
