About the Book

Not My Daughter

In the novel’s opening pages, school principal Susan Tate confronts a devastating secret. Her 17-year-old daughter, Lily, has revealed that she is expecting a baby --- and that this is not an accidental pregnancy. Susan soon learns that some of Lily’s friends are pregnant too: they’ve made a pact to become moms in high school, intentionally having unprotected sex. Naïve but determined, they yearn to raise their babies on their own, wanting to keep the fathers away for as long as possible. For Susan, the news threatens to destroy her career. Once a teen mom herself, she has launched high-profile campaigns to educate students about preventing unwanted pregnancy. Then Lily makes a frightening discovery about the baby she is carrying, and she and Susan begin to see their future in a new way. Gripping and heartwarming, Not My Daughter will keep you enthralled on every page.
