About book Not My Daughter (2009)

Wow! Now I understand why there's a lot of controversy with this book. A lot of mixed reviews but as for me... I truly enjoyed this book. I gave it 4 stars because it got some boring parts. SOME SPOILER PART!!!But it was an easy read for me and I sympathize with Susan and her predicament (along with the other 2 mothers). It was tough in Susan's part, being the principal of the high school and having her teenage daughter pregnant and also knowing that the daughter is part of the pregnancy pact with her friends. Of course, all the accusation would be focus on her and was totally not fair. Anyway, everything worked out well in the end. I must also admit I can truly identify and love reading about the knitting and dyeing yarn part of the book since I'm a knitter myself. I like this book because it teach us a lesson not to be so judgmental with the mistakes of others since we ourselves are not perfect. Very real emotions and actions with regard to the pregnant teenagers and the people involved with them. A very unrealistic school board in their reaction to and their handling of the principal and the issue of three pregnant girls in high school. Many times it is asked, "What are we gong to do about this?" Seriously?????? There is nothing for a school board, superintendent or principal to do or can do. Good story about strong women and female relationships based over time.From the book cover-----When Susan Tate’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Lily, announces she is pregnant, Susan is stunned. A single mother, she has struggled to do everything right. She sees the pregnancy as an inconceivable tragedy both for Lily and herself. Then comes word of two more pregnancies among other high school juniors who happen to be Lily’s best friends. The town turns to talk of a pact. As fingers start pointing, the emotional ties between mothers and daughters are stretched to breaking in an emotionally wrenching story of love and forgiveness
