Jamie and Elaine are best friends, juniors in high school, and “in trouble.” Based on Levine’s interviews with women who came of age in the 50’s and 60’s, this novel explores the girls’ choices at a time when women and girls had very few options, and when pregnant teens were rejected, humiliated, and unable to obtain reliable medical care.
