Tender and thoughtful, Megan charts the welter of complex emotions Megan goes through from the moment she discovers she’s pregnant. At only fifteen she has to deal with the impossibly difficult choices that it throws up as well as coping with how her friends and her mum will react. Mary Hopper writes without prejudice and with great sensitivity. There are three titles in the Megan series, all of them short but brilliantly written and totally addictive.
The first in the Megan series, as Megan falls pregnant and has to work out what to do...
Megan, at age 15, discovers that she is 5 months pregnant in her ‘Personal Development’ class. How she copes, the decisions that she has to make, how her family and friends react are all told in a telling, compulsive tale. A tale that pulls no punches and yet is hugely responsible in its narrative. The sequel to follow will tell of Megan’s first year with her new baby.
