E going to be reading this book It s sing abortion as a plot device for a light hearted friendship story The real issues aren t addressed fully How about safe sex She got pregnant because her boyfriend poked holes in the condom How about making responsible decisions and dealing with conseuences The entire blurb is full irresponsible choices and making it out like it s a grand adventure I do believe it isn t the government s right to tell anyone what to do with their body but I am not for abortion I find nothing humorous about abortion I loved this book It is essentially Super Bad with female main characters but instead of trying to get to a party they re on a road trip to an abortion Even though the topics discussed throughout the book are heavy and serious there s this amazing humor and report between these two female characters that you almost forget at times where they re headed and just enjoy the ride That being said there s open conversations about things such as religion abortion female rights and other Southern values showing the multisided views to each and not painting anything as black and white rather on what s right for different people First things first a big fuck off to the gross pro lifers who decided to spew their nasty shit onto this book in the reviews Imagine thinking a book about a teenage girl and the right to her own body and life choices is anti women Can t relate to that level of stupidI still stand for what this book is about but the writing and tone just dragged this book down It doesn t help that I read Girls on the Verge a couple months ago and that book did slap so hard Highly recommend that one Unpregnant is about a seventeen year old girl named Veronica who ends Cirsova (Issue up pregnant when her boyfriend pokes holes in their condoms It s her senior year of high school and Veronica has big dreams but staying in her home town with her boyfriend raising a baby isn t one of them So she makes a decision to have an abortion only the closest one is over 900 miles away Too ashamed to ask her friends or family for help Veronica endsp getting her ex best friend Bailey to drive her But the trip is full of than they bargained forWhy did a man co write this I don t think anyone ever needs a man writing an abortion story sorry Second off this writing just ruined everything The tone of this book tries to be funny and wacky as they go on wild shenanigans on their roadtrip but things just go BEYOND ridiculous to the point where it wasn t even realistic Veronica s boyfriend literally tracks them the entire way screaming babe they do something to slow him down and then he finds them again and it was just so weird Everything he did and said was weirdThen The closest place she can legally get one is over nine hundred miles away and Veronica doesn’t have a car Too ashamed to ask her friends or family for help Veronica turns to the one person she believes won’t judge her Bailey Butler Jefferson High’s own little black cloud of anger and snark and Veronica’s ex best friend Once on the road Veronica ickly remembers nothing with
