Beginning ~ never saw it coming

Not My Daughter ~ by Barbara Delinsky, 2010, fiction (Maine), 9/10
"Susan Tate never saw it coming."
That's a real hook!  And it hooked me into wanting to know what "it" could be.  Well, that's not quite true, since I already knew the book is about Susan Tate's seventeen-year-old daughter getting pregnant, along with other girls at her school, where the mother just happens to be the principal.  It was a quick read, so I've already rated it 9 of 10, an excellent book.

What coming? Know Barbara Delinsky is always good. Loved Lake News and quite a few of her books.

Good beginning.

I only read one of her books, and it was VERY good. I read Sweet, Salt, Air.

THANKS for sharing.

Barbara Delinsky is not one of my favorite authors but I am going to put that aside and go by your recommendation.
Will let you know, Bonnie !
