This historical fiction novel set in the summer of 1972, months before the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade, is an introspective look into abortion rights. The novel weaves together the lives of three teenage girls from very different backgrounds. 16-year-old Ola, 12-year-old Missippi, and 15-year-old Sue all find themselves pregnant pre-Choice, and must decide, before they become too far along in their pregnancies, how to move forward.
