Baby's Breath, YA fiction

Hi, my name is Jessica and I am 16. I had sex with Joshua. I never thought I'd end up pregnant and now I am terrified. I've heard of babies found in dumpsters. I am better than that. I will make sure someone finds him first before the cold does.

I was inspired by Project Cuddle to write this book.They work hard around the clock saving unwanted babies. Through their efforts, they have saved 730 babies the past 16 years! It takes about $2,500 for them to save one baby ...

My author royalties will go straight to supporting their remarkable cause.

While many parents want their kids to read books without sex, I purposely threw it in. Let's face it, sex among teens is fairly common--more common than we'd like. A book about the harsh consequences of sex is likely to impact readers than one regarding abstinence.

Baby's Breath shares with us a girl's traumatic experience of an unexpected pregnancy, and how she deals with her turmoil of hiding it.
