Mya has a plan. Give the baby up for adoption, finish high school and college, marry Michael, and then have kids. But a pregnancy complication lands Mya at a hospital half a country away from home and changes everything.
She moves in with her aunt and uncle and their kids, including Jane, Mya’s self-absorbed sixteen-year-old cousin. Living in tight quarters, with tense small talk and unspoken judgments, Mya and Jane struggle to find common ground.
Feeling all alone, Mya longs for home and for Michael. But as her baby grows, so does her love for it, and what she’d thought was a clear choice becomes fuzzy. Keeping the baby could mean losing Michael, and Mya isn’t sure she can handle her own life without him much less the life of another.
How can she choose between the boy she loves and the baby their love created?
