When I first heard about The Baby I knew it was something I wanted to read and once it arrived I made short work of it. The Baby is told in multiple points of view, but instead of taking turns, each character gets thier own chapter to explain thier story with thier own month. Olivia in February,...

When I opened The Baby, I anticipated a quirky, mystery-comedic-misadventure of baby-sitting gone hilariously wrong. With a dash of adolescence adoration. I was grossly mistaken. Instead, I plunged into a pertinent plot involving important issues. The depth of this quickly captivating story, seem...

I'd give the book 3.5 stars! I really liked the concept and the structure of the story, that each of the five characters got a chapter. It was great how new information was slowly revealed throughout the story, and it wasn't just the same event from five different perspectives, but each character...

I fell in love with the idea behind Lisa Drakeford’s debute the minute I saw the book and once my copy landed on my desk, it went straight to the top of my reading list. Teenage pregnancy – and especially teenage parenthood – is a hugely important issue which, I think, doesn’t get the attention i...

While I wasn't as emotionally invested in the characters as I'd have liked to have been, I did really enjoy the concepts it brought up. About teen pregnancy, being a parent, bullying, domestic violence, friendship. I liked it a lot. The Baby by Lisa Drakeford was an interesting read that covered l...

The message is dreadful and quite harmful for girls (and boys). The fact that the characters all congratulate the boy on what a great father he is when all he does is take the baby for 2 hours on Sundays!!! Our expectations as a society for men is so low that we are ecstatic when they spend 2 hou...

3.5 Stars. Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase. I read The Baby by Lisa Drakeford thinking that it might work for my upcoming Sex in Teen Lit Month II blog event, seeing as it's about the arrival of a unexpected baby. It doesn't quite work for what I want the month to highlight, but I was sur...

Recipe for teen best seller - you think hmm: teen pregnancy, abusive boyfriend, absent parents and friends with a deep dark secret..... ACTUALLY NO! It would be great for a book to focus on one of these things or maybe two but seriously 17. Clearly writing about all of these issues at once didn't...

The Baby was not at all what I was expecting. The cover paints this picture, as if this book was to be a lighter contemporary--when it fact it's not all that light. It tackles more serious topics than it does anything fun. True to the title, The Baby is about the baby. In the midst of a party, bes...

"The Baby" is a short book, only a couple of hundred pages long. It's a YA book that revolves around five friends, each of them get a chapter to themselves but the whole book is in the third person. Olivia and her boyfriend Jonty have been going out for 6 years, but Jonty isn't particularly nice...
