This is a great book, it teaches young teens that they should have protective sex, because if they dont it will result to pregnancy at a young age taking on the responsibility of an adult... its better to have save sex than to be sorry u ruined your young life by having a baby at a young age... Kids shouldn't grow up as fast, be a kid while you can, dont rush and want to be adults.

I think this book is a good book for kids and parents to read because it can tell parents that they can forgive their kids if they do anything bad!! and its a good book to kids because if there are kids with low self esteem like olivia they can be as powerful as olia was!!
