When Susan Tate’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Lily, announces she is pregnant, Susan is stunned. A single mother, she has struggled to do everything right. She sees the pregnancy as an unimaginable tragedy for both Lily and herself.

Then comes word of two more pregnancies among high-school juniors who happen to be Lily’s best friends—and the town turns to talk of a pact.

As fingers start pointing, the most ardent criticism is directed at Susan. As principal of the high school, she has always been held up as a role model of hard work and core values. Now her detractors accuse her of being a lax mother, perhaps not worthy of the job of shepherding impressionable students. As Susan struggles with the implications of her daughter’s pregnancy, her job, financial independence, and long-fought-for dreams are all at risk.

The emotional ties between mothers and daughters are stretched to breaking in this emotionally wrenching story of love and forgiveness. Once again, Barbara Delinsky has given us a powerful novel, one that asks a central question: What does it take to be a good mother?

    " A warm wonderful look at learning to deal with family issues between a single mother, her daughter and how choices can destroy other lives. Ms Delinsky has delivered another superb must-read. "

    " Teenage pregnancy pact - hard to think about 17-year olds getting pregnant on purpose. This could be a great discussion book... "

    " The story/idea was good- a pregnancy pact of teen girls. But the characters were flat, there wasn't any tie-together with several of the themes, and everything had a happy ending. Not very realistic, in my opinion when we're talking teen pregnancy. "
