That being said, I didn’t really feel any connection from Miranda. Teens will be held by the fresh take on the teen-pregnancy plot. Aug 19, Katie rated it it was amazing Shelves: However I hoped a bit more for Rand and Kamran.

Tell Me a Secret. Her death shattered their perfect family and nothing c Debut author, Holly Cupala, has taken a very tough subject and written a beautiful novel about it.

The plot was fast-paced. Miranda considers her baby to be a replacement on sorts for his dead sister, but the author never shies away from the negatives of being a scret mom. The loss of her sister Xanda leads her to make some very stupid choices. She needs Lexi as much as Lexi needs her mother. Refresh and try again. Apr 22, Skye rated it liked it Shelves: About Product Details Praise It’s tough living in the shadow of a dead girl.

Perhaps this book would be enjoyed more by teenagers I’m hardly the right age to be included in the books target audience and hopefully it contains enough information about teen pregnancy to make them think twice about getting themselves into Rand’s situation.

Rand has had a lot to deal with since her sister Xander died 5 years ago, she has never really dealt with her grief and her parents haven’t helped by refusing to talk about Xander now she is gone.

She was incredibly likable and I found myself relating to many of her doubts from when I was a teenager. Get a free e-book from Book perk. She had that sour, sharp smell, and I knew she had been with Andre—Andre, of the sultry voice and skin the shade of coffee with milk.


I was relieved to see her happy and moving ahead with her future, after so much heartache and sadness during her pregnancy. Anyways, I think that this could be a good book for teenagers to read and possibly even parents of pregnant teenagers. I liked the second part of the book with Lexi.

She was brave and forceful when it came to her baby and that was what really mattered. She’s strong and vulnerable at the same time. Miranda Mathison hasn’t had an easy life since her sister died.

I liked this book in general, it’s very emotional and I cried a few times, but I was so pissed at Mandie for He isn’t the focus of the story, but he grows as a person as well, and by the end of the novel, I had stopped making angry faces when his name was mentioned.

More accurately, she would give anything to just be like her. I would of freaked in her condition: Other than that, if you like audio, this was very good quality then again, I have no real reference material.
