Term 2 Book: The First Part Last by Angela Johnson


Bobby’s a classic urban teenager.  He’s restless. He’s impulsive.  But the thing that makes him different is this:  He’s going to be a father.  His girlfriend, Nia, is pregnant, and their lives are about to change forever.  Instead of spending time with friends, they’ll be spending time with doctors, and next, diapers.  They have options: keeping the baby, adoption.  They want to do the right thing.  

If only it was clear what the right thing was.
