Blog Tour: Me, Him, Them, and It by: Caela Carter

Goodreads Summary: 

ME is Evelyn Jones, 16, a valedictorian hopeful who's been playing bad girl to piss off THEM, her cold, distant parents. HIM is Todd, Evelyn's secret un-boyfriend, who she thought she was just using for sex - until she accidentally fell in love with him. But before Evelyn gets a chance to tell Todd how she feels, something much more important comes up. IT. IT is a fetus. Evelyn is pregnant - and when Todd turns his back on her, Evelyn has no idea who to turn to. Can a cheating father, a stiff, cold mother, a pissed-off BFF, and a (thankfully!) loving aunt with adopted girls of her own help Evelyn make the heart-wrenching decisions that follow?

My Review: 

ReadingNook Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I've read many books regarding teen pregnancy, but this one was unique in many ways. Evelyn's family life is falling apart after her father cheats on her mother, and her mother is as absent as ever. Evelyn decides to give up the good catholic girl persona to become a "bad girl" and although the reality is that she's now named the school slut, she has only been with one person, worse though she got knocked up and the baby's daddy isn't even her boyfriend.

Evelyn goes through up and downs of deciding what to do with an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. She goes off to her favorites aunt's house because she dosen't want anyone to know about her pregnancy, even her best friend, but keeping secrets, especially secrets this big from the people she loves leads to disasterous consequences.

Me, Him, Them, and It was a good book regarding teenage pregnancy, I just didn't love it like everyone else did. Evelyn aggravted me at times with her thoughts about the baby, and maybe it's just because i'm at the point in my life where kids are a reality and knowing the struggles some people have to get pregnant makes situations like this extremely fustrating to me. Overall, I did think it was a decent story, but just didn't have the same feelings of elation towards it that everyone else did.
