Immaculate by Katelyn Detweiler
Well, this is an interesting story. Seventeen year old Mina is visited by a mysterious - ok, strange - old woman as she is closing up the pizza shop where she works. The woman knows Mina's name, and Mina finds her creepy so when she asks Mina for her permission - for what, Mina has no idea - she says yes, just to get away from the creepy old woman. Later, Mina discovers she is pregnant. She is totally a virgin and her boyfriend and father don't believe her. The only people who do believe her are her mother, and Jesse, a co-worker who was there that night and had also been spoken to by Iris, the creepy old woman. From there, the story covers Mina's life until other people hear her story and then how society would treat someone who claims to be a pregnant virgin.
