'November Blues' by Sharon M. Draper

Gritty, honest look at teen pregnancy.

Age: 13+

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this is a realistic portrayal of a teen pregnancy and parenthood, and readers will get a good look at the difficulties November now faces in her life. As books about teen pregnancy go, this one is pretty mild: no sex scenes, and no glossing over the difficulties. There are references to having unprotected sex, a clinical description of conception, prenatal doctor exams, a childbirth scene, discussion of abortion, and a pregnant 12-year-old. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Atheneum)
