Doormat by Kelly McWilliams
This book is about a girl named Jaime. Her friend, Melissa, tells her she's pregnant, but Jaime doesn't believe her. After doing a pregnancy test, they realize that she's pregnant. But the problem is, Melissa is Catholic: and can't get abortion. Melissa refuses to tell her parents and is struck with morning sickness. One day during school, Zach, who is part of the drama club, overhears them talking and offers help. So basically, this book is about a girl telling her best friend she's pregnant, and her best friend helps her. I didn't really like this book that much. I thought it was sort of "plain". It was more like one event, then another and so on. I didn't find many details. It wasn't very touching. I give it a 6 out of 10. -Jisun K.
