    I first read Megan Mary Hooper when I was a young teen at school I absolutely loved the series back then and was pleased to find the series in the school I now work in I couldn t resist reading the series again I read quite a lot of books surrounding the topic of Teenage Pregnancy whilst I was at school come to think of it I must have concerned a few people at some point My friends definitely thought I would be the first to have a baby but alas, that is not the case.Megan really gets into I first read Megan Mary Hooper when I was a young teen at school I absolutely loved the series back then and was pleased to find the series in the school I now work in I couldn t resist reading the series again I read quite a lot of books surrounding the topic of Teenage Pregnancy whilst I was at school come to think of it I must have concerned a few people at some point My friends definitely thought I would be the first to have a baby but alas, that is not the case.Megan really gets into the head of our main character and her thought processes We don t just read about a teenage girl falling pregnant We read about her shock of finding out, her lack of knowledge surrounding the topic of sexual intercourse, contraception and pregnancy which just highlights the need for much improved Personal and Social Education in schools, even now , her confusion throughout the pregnancy, her panic and fear about different things and of course, her thoughts, feelings and fears about possibly being single teenage mother I really enjoyed the first person narrative as we really get to know Megan and watch her mature and grow as a person as the story progresses I still really enjoyed reading this book a good 10 years later than I first read it and I will be reading the rest of the series too

    It s been years since I last read the Megan books But for some reason I felt like revisiting them and so I searched them out on my bookcase I think the first Megan book was one of the first teenage books that I really fell in love with I really love the way in which Megan is written Mary Hooper allows the reader to get inside fifteen year old Megan s head and to get a genuine idea of the thoughts, feelings and emotions that come from being pregnant at such a young age along with everything t It s been years since I last read the Megan books But for some reason I felt like revisiting them and so I searched them out on my bookcase I think the first Megan book was one of the first teenage books that I really fell in love with I really love the way in which Megan is written Mary Hooper allows the reader to get inside fifteen year old Megan s head and to get a genuine idea of the thoughts, feelings and emotions that come from being pregnant at such a young age along with everything that happens to her as a result the reactions of those around her, exclusion and being sent away At times I felt the reaction from Megan s mum was rather over the top and too harsh reading it now as an adult I felt angry towards Megan s mum and would have liked to have slapped her and given Megan a cuddle Although as a young teen the reaction probably would have scared me a little which may have been the point Which could also be detrimental as it may have put some girls off telling their own mums if they were in Megan s situation One thing that I probably would change about the book is to have included the letters written to Megan during the time she spent with her aunt rather than just being able to read the letters Megan sent in response But that is just a minor quibble I do think it was a very good way of being able to pass time in the novel Another thing that I think the book maybe could have benefitted from is perhaps they could have shown Megan s reaction to things such as having her first scan and seeing the baby along with maybe how she found antenatal classes and the like as the book doesn t really touch on these aspects of pregnancy

    Wow I read this book when I was 14 and it defenety opened my eyes and made me think This book is every teenage girl and for every young mum to be This book prepares you for how life will change when you have a baby Unfortunately, in this case Megan was only 15 when she found out she was pregnant.

    I first read this book back when I was in high school, I d never read a book based on pregnancy and this was a novel subject within fiction I love the way in which Mary Hooper approaches the subject, making it easy to follow with her simplistic writing style.We follow a 15 year old girl, Megan, who is in her final year s of high school She finds out she is five months pregnant, after having sex with her older ex boyfriend, during a personal development tutorial with the pastoral care teacher I first read this book back when I was in high school, I d never read a book based on pregnancy and this was a novel subject within fiction I love the way in which Mary Hooper approaches the subject, making it easy to follow with her simplistic writing style.We follow a 15 year old girl, Megan, who is in her final year s of high school She finds out she is five months pregnant, after having sex with her older ex boyfriend, during a personal development tutorial with the pastoral care teacher After two pregnancy tests confirming Megan s fears, we follow her journey into motherhood We see what it is really like to be 15 and pregnant, Megan becomes the subject of humiliation in school She becomes isolated and no one wants anything to do with her Megan s mother is a single working parent who is disappointed with Megan s news to begin with We soon discover that her Auntie, an easy going character isthan happy to support Megan through the highs and lows of her pregnancy after being sent to a specialist school for teenage mothers I loved how raw and realistic the topic of teenage pregnancy appears in the book, showing the reader how isolated and confusing pregnancy can be We also find that Megan s ex, Luke, does not want to live up to his mistake, and how Megan s friends aren t who she thought they were This book is a very good stepping stone intoserious literature for younger readers who are ready to make that step from child fiction to young adult literature

    Lo ammetto me la sono cercata Non che mi aspettassi chiss che storia, ma avendo cominciato presto a fare figli spesso leggo storie di questo tipo, perch fanno parte di me La prima parte stata carina la presa di coscienza del fatto, le ripercussioni di questo nella vita di un adolescente, i dubbi La seconda parte, piena di lettere a genitori, amici e assistenti sociali l ho trovata piuttosto soporifera Il finale ha senso, ma stato tirato via con la velocit del fulmine e ogni situazio Lo ammetto me la sono cercata Non che mi aspettassi chiss che storia, ma avendo cominciato presto a fare figli spesso leggo storie di questo tipo, perch fanno parte di me La prima parte stata carina la presa di coscienza del fatto, le ripercussioni di questo nella vita di un adolescente, i dubbi La seconda parte, piena di lettere a genitori, amici e assistenti sociali l ho trovata piuttosto soporifera Il finale ha senso, ma stato tirato via con la velocit del fulmine e ogni situazione a cui la protagonista va incontro zia fantastica a parte totalmente e assurdamente sgradevole Non lo consiglierei

    During a Personal Development lesson that was talks about female reproduction, periods, the pill, and how it all works out, the teacher says something that will change 15 year old Megan s life Of course, it is possible be pregnant and still have periods.From that point on, everything changes for Megan, because she finds out she s five months pregnant How did this happen What is she going to do What will the father say What will her Mum say This book is pretty good It focuses mainly on Mega During a Personal Development lesson that was talks about female reproduction, periods, the pill, and how it all works out, the teacher says something that will change 15 year old Megan s life Of course, it is possible be pregnant and still have periods.From that point on, everything changes for Megan, because she finds out she s five months pregnant How did this happen What is she going to do What will the father say What will her Mum say This book is pretty good It focuses mainly on Megan and how she s thinking and feeling, and what she s going to do, and less so on what happens to her physically, but it was good You have no idea how often I wanted to slap her Mum She was so nasty, insulting and unsupportive, it was just so awful Reading this book as a 22 year old, I wanted to give Megan a hug and knock her Mum s lights out, but if I had read this book at 15, or maybe younger, it would probably have scared me It could work that young readers may decide to be extra careful because they wouldn t want their mothers talking to and treating them like that It was awful.Claire, Megan s best friend, also needs a slap She enjoyed the drama of it all, and didn t think enough about Megan s feelings It was because of her that everyone at school found out and treated her so horribly She kept pestering Megan about what she was going to do, and had she told her Mum, she just wasn t helping at all.I liked how we got to read the conversations with the social worker, Susie Through those conversations, everything was explained bout what Megan s options were keeping the baby or having it adopted, and what either choice would mean for her as she is 15 Not only does Megan get this information, but so does the young adult reader I thought it was clever.I think it would have been better if there wason what happened at antenatal classes and doctors appointments It would have been cool to see how Megan reacted on seeing her first scan, and all these other things However, Megan s feelings on being pregnant were brilliantly portrayed I d have given anything to have my own room I really needed it now I felt the need to pace about, to shout, rock backwards and forwards and generally cry, yell and make a fuss about what happened to me And another part of me wanted to get right inside myself and be quiet, try and sort things out in my head P 29There were no sex scenes in the book, as it happened before the book started, but it s a pretty good story that deals with an outcome of unprotected sex Over all, Megan is a pretty good book, and maybe good as an introduction to the topic for younger readers I liked it

    SpoilersI liked this book I liked how it deals with the strain on families that teenage pregnancy has Some of the books I ve read before about a pregnant teen include supportive families I liked how in this book, Megan s mother wasn t supportive about Megan s pregnancy because it gives us another view on how hard it is for some girls who do not get the support they need from their families However, I really didn t like Megan s mom I felt she boardered on verbal abuse towards Megan especiall SpoilersI liked this book I liked how it deals with the strain on families that teenage pregnancy has Some of the books I ve read before about a pregnant teen include supportive families I liked how in this book, Megan s mother wasn t supportive about Megan s pregnancy because it gives us another view on how hard it is for some girls who do not get the support they need from their families However, I really didn t like Megan s mom I felt she boardered on verbal abuse towards Megan especially the names she calls her after she found out she was pregnant.I didn t really like Claire because she seemed to enjoy the trouble that Megan was in She was way to eager to tell everyone about Megan and that s just evil Shes mean and I just really don t get why Megan doesn t just drop her She s donebad annoying things to Megan during her time of need, which shows that she s not a good friend I like how Megan flip flops between adoption and keeping the baby This is a big decision for her and I do like how she s unsure of herself because lets be honest alot of teen mothers and even non teen mothers sometimes face this hard decision This isn t a one two three decision This is life alerting and the mother has to be able to deal with her feelings after she s made her decision I really enjoyed the ending where Megan feels the instant connection with her baby and decides to keep it because I ve heard that that is a real feeling when mothers hold their babies for the first time Luke was ok I liked how he wasn t an ass hat about Megan s pregnancy and saying that it wasn t his He was stepping up to do the right thing He even offered to give her money for the baby so he s a good guy in my book in that aspect I thoroughly enjoyed the book and can t wait to read the next two
