Summary
  • "The author describes her experience hidden away by her wealthy Chicago parents in a dreary government facility for impoverished pregnant teens after she discovered she was accidentally expecting at age 17 in 1979,"--NoveList
  • Chicago, 1979. Halfway through her senior year of high school, Pryor discovers that she is pregnant-- a fact her parents are determined to keep a secret from her friends, siblings, and community forever. Driving across three states, her mother drops her off at what Liz thinks is a Catholic home for unwed mothers but is, in truth, a locked government-run facility for delinquent and impoverished pregnant teenage girls. She's alone and terrified, a fa girl from a privileged, sheltered background living amid tough, street-savvy girls who come from the foster care system or juvenile detention. As Pryor develops a bond with the other girls, she begins to question everything she once held true
