Having had a baby at fifteen, Megan has to make the most difficult choice. Everyone thinks she shouldn’t keep the baby but Megan feels quite differently. Can she really bear not to? What choice Megan should make and how she can cope with it is a challenging dilemma beautifully handled by Mary Hooper. There are three titles in the Megan series, all of them short but brilliantly written and totally addictive.

If you like Mary Hooper you might also like to read books by Melvin Burgess, Judy Blume and Lynne Reid Banks.

Synopsis

Megan Book Two: And Then There Were Two by Mary Hooper

The second in the series, Megan comes to terms with her new baby.

The hugely compelling sequel to Megan, who, at age 15, has discovered in her ‘Personal Development’ class that she is 5 months pregnant. With the first book ending with Megan giving birth, the sequel describes what Megan decides to do with the baby (yes she keeps it) and also how she copes in her first six months as a young mother - as her life is completely turned around.

About the Author

Mary Hooper

Says of herself: I was born in Barnes, South West London, which became expensive and trendy as soon as I left it. I often – nostalgically and rather lazily – use Barnes as a setting for my books. If I speak of a river then I’m thinking of the Thames, and if it’s a park or common then I picture Barnes Common. I was able to utilise all these local points and bring in Mortlake and Richmond, too, when I was writing two books about Queen Elizabeth I’s magician, Dr Dee, who lived in Mortlake.

I wasn’t very clever at school, although I was always good at English. I failed my 11-plus exam, and then my 13-plus, and after this there wasn’t a lot of hope for me, so I didn’t get any qualifications or certificates. My last school report says, “Far too noisy and talkative” and I think this was because, being an only child, I just loved having someone around to talk to. I left school when I was fifteen (you could in those days) but it wasn’t until many years later than I did a part-time degree at Reading University and began to get officially educated.

I started working as a window dresser, but soon went into an office and – very valuable, this, for a writer – learned to type. One day I read a short story, thought that I could do better and sat down and wrote one. I sent it to Jackie, a teenage magazine, and much to my surprise sold it for £14. I was launched as a writer! I went on to write lots of short stories, and then serials, and eventually decided to write a book. At the time, there were hardly any books for teenagers, so I found getting published quite easy, but it’s very different now. I’ve written perhaps seventy or so books for children and young adults, most of them set in modern times, but as soon as I began writing historical novels I realised how much I loved doing this, and decided I didn’t want to write any more modern ones. No, not even any Megans!

I’m married to Richard and we live in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. I’ve still got a VW Beetle, but have upgraded it to a cabriolet version, which will be lovely when the weather improves and I can put the top down (if I can remember how to do it). My children are very grown up, my son is a writer and works for New Scientist and my daughter works for Microsoft - and has recently presented me with a gorgeous first grandson, Mackenzie. I look after him on Wednesdays so don’t ever bother me then! My hobbies are reading (of course), pottering around the house, painting furniture and being nosy (which goes with being a writer).
