The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez
Last year, 17 year old Gaby Rodriguez pretended she was pregnant as her senior project to gague prejudice and sterotyping. She had the cooperation of her mom and boyfriend, but most of their families and friends and teachers at school, had no idea that she was not really pregnant. In this book, Gaby tells about her family and how she planned the project. It turned out to be more difficult than she expected and got much more attention than she had ever imagined, going national with major networks fighting for her story.
The book is interesting and brings up issues that pregnant teens face that many people may not be aware of.
