The First Part Last By: Angela Johnson

Most stories about teenage pregnancy tend to be seen all through the females point of view. In this novel, a boy named Bobby and his girlfriend Nia are madly in love but then find out that she is pregnant while they are still in high school. The story is told through Bobby's eyes, and it is interesting to see what might go through a young boys mind when he finds out that his girlfriend is pregnant. The novel has a lot of flashbacks and can be confusing at times but it a fast, suspenseful, and dramatic piece. Will Bobby and Nia keep the baby? How will they deal? Will Bobby learn what it means to become a man and accept the consequences of his actions? GV
