Not leaving the house because a teen is pregnant? Then they changed in a matter of two days? Nah It didn't ring trueI did love the writing and the characters except for the main character's parents who were well developed but dishonest distateful The test of the characters were flawed growing and loveable The spirituality in this book is beautiful
