Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Wednesday meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine Participants highlight an upcoming unpublished novel they're interested in.

Title: Pregnant Pause
Author: Han Nolan
Release Date: September 19, 2011
Publisher:  Harcourt Children's Books


Nobody gets away with telling Eleanor Crowe what to do. But as a pregnant sixteen-year-old, her options are limited: move to Kenya with her missionary parents or marry the baby’s father and work at his family’s summer camp for overweight kids.

Despite her initial reluctance to help out, Elly is surprised that she actually enjoys working with the campers. But a tragedy on the very day her baby is born starts a series of events that overwhelms Elly with unexpected emotions and difficult choices. Somehow, she must turn her usual obstinance in a direction that can ensure a future for herself—and for the new life she has created.
I've never read a Han Nolan novel and I'm hoping Pregnant Pause will be my first. I love when authors take the popular topic of teen pregnancy and put a new spin on it. I can't wait to read this!
