Fifteen-year-old Hannah is in trouble. She's pregnant, and can't bring herself to tell her family or friends the truth. Meanwhile, Aaron is new at school and desperate to keep a low profile. So why on earth does he volunteer to pretend to be the father of Hannah's baby?
This smart, sharp young adult novel is a real breath of fresh air. Frank, honest and non-judgemental about teen sexuality, it feels authentic, contemporary and distinctly British. The characters are always believable, and never rely on simple stereotyping: told from the alternating perspectives of Hannah and Aaron, Non Pratt's narrative sensitively explores the complex issues of relationships and growing up with both compassion and wit. A warm, funny and brave debut from a young adult author to watch.
