I don't read non-fiction books. Now I know why. I become too involved. I became so involved with the story and characters that I felt I was living the story.

I felt the closest to Elizabeth. When she was upset, I felt her pain. Her stupid husband, Josh, annoyed me. I wanted to hit him. I understood her anger. Being betrayed by a best friend is also very hurtful. So much pain she endured. Real life is much sadder than made-up tales.

When I reached the end of the book, I felt like crying. I also wan I don't read non-fiction books. I also wanted to scream out, What happens next? Everyone makes bad decisions in their lives so we could all understand the author's angst. I must read the second book to see what happens to Elizabeth and her babies.

Testing the waters, PISCES. May 8-15

I've got your back: Elizabeth wrote this book in order for teens and the parents of teens to become aware of a harsh reality: She put her deepest secrets on blast in hopes that other teens may learn from her mistakes and that parents keep their daughters locked up in dungeons until a ripe, old age. Okay, the latter is just what I feel like doing with my own daughter who is now 11, almost Elizabeth's story is one that everyone can benefit from.

Whether you are a teenager, a parent, or just interested in reading memoirs, this book is for you. This girl has been through so much in her young life, that she decided to break her memoir up into four I think it's four I can't wait to read on! Get to work, Elizabeth! I'm cracking the whip! Jan 02, Marie marked it as to-read Shelves: Testing the Waters The Elements of Life sounds like an interesting read so I decided to enter the first-reads giveaway and to my surprise I was a winner!

Sort of a weird choice here: I do think there's a genuine attempt here to present an unvarnished picture of the pitfalls of teen parenting, but The structure and end result make me think that the bigger goal was to sell multiple books, making this who Sort of a weird choice here: The structure and end result make me think that the bigger goal was to sell multiple books, making this whole book a cliffhanger for a second one.

Popular. Driven. The girl next door.

First of all I have to say that getting pregnant on purpose without really discussing it with your partner and not having a plan on how to support the child, is very irresponsible immature and selfish in my oppinion. With that said, I actually liked this book even though it's not the type of book i usually read. It shows how judgemental people can be about teen pregnancy, the effort it takes to go through with it and that just because you get a ki I receved this book through a goodreads giveaway.

It shows how judgemental people can be about teen pregnancy, the effort it takes to go through with it and that just because you get a kid early doesn't mean that you're a failure. I like the honesty in the book. It shows that it's possible but not all fun and games with being a teen mom. My sister got pregnant when she was sixteen, so I recognize a lot of the things happening in the book.

I feel a bit bad about only giving the book 3 stars, because it was a good story, well written and an easy read, but it's not my type of book. In it's genre, it's really good, but this is just too much drama and feelings for me. And I changed my mind, I'll give it 4 stars. Mar 07, Isabelle Hunt rated it it was amazing. I was holding my daughter's hand, and she was just the prettiest thing in the world, with curly dark brown hair, just like mine, and the longest eyelashes. When I woke up, that feeling of motherly love was still there, and it just felt so weird and beautiful at the same time, that I couldn't help but imagine what I would be like as a mother.

Honestly, I do not have much knowledge on teen pregnancy. I've seen Juno, sure, but I just don't think the movie depicts the reality of teen moms. Testing the Waters seemed to demonstrate well the hardships that teen moms must overcome, to be accepted in the society and to take care of the baby; however, in the end, all these difficulties are so worth it because of something as small as a little laugh that the baby makes, which can make a world of difference.

I can't wait to read the next volumes and see what happens! Dec 01, E. Kindle Edition Amazon Verified Purchase "Blasted through this book, can't wait for the next volume and I have so much more to say. For example, while still in the hospital from giving birth, the chapter ends with what is described as a loud explosion.

The next chapter begins with the so-called explosion--the baby made a dirty diaper. Newborns don't have enough in them to make an "explosion"--a mess perhaps, but it won't be loud enough to be an explosion. Wish I hadn't wasted my time on it. I haven't dedicated myself to reading in quite a few years, and I am excited to have a hobby that takes me away from the busy world. This memoir is one that many women myself included will probably be able to relate to.

The author takes you through some serious issues with despair, co-dependency, parenting issues, substance abuse and so much more. What she's gone through in her short life is astounding. I recommend this book for anyone who is struggling with the mentioned issues and if you think you're alone, read this book. This book is awsome.

It really hit home for me being a teen mother myself. I really felt for Elizabeth. Although I think she was foolish to plan her pregnancy, I understand her and all she's been through. With that said, the book does have a few mistakes, but that is normal for kindle books, it's not something that bothered me much.

It's well written and heartfelt and defiantly worth your time to read it, especially if your a young woman thinking about having a baby. Elizabeth shares everything about how she feels, her experiences, her expectations and about her failures,In this brutally honest memoir.

I would have liked the book to end after she looses her children so teens get the full picture in one book since the books are expensive and teens do not have much money but I understand it's a way to make money. Teen pregnancy is not glamorous, fun or exciting. It puts you and your child in danger of being serious hurt and is life changing event. You could have to spend the rest of your life paying for your mistakes in more ways than you can ever imagine. So take the time to read this before making a decision to bring a child into this world.

This may only be one girls story but it's not atypical and nearly every girl who has had a teen pregnancy will tell you there are many aspects of Elizabeth's story that mirrors their own. Weather you are planning a pregnancy or have an accidental pregnancy take the time to read this before making your decision, then take the time to learn what your options are. What exactly does 'based on a true story mean'? I am so hoping this is fiction and that there is no self absorbed trashy main character actually walking around in South Tahoe!

If it is a memoir then I am sorry to say thank goodness the children were removed from her care. My heart breaks for the tiny little girl raped by a man because the mother was high on drugs and did not actually care for her children in any sense of that word! It beggars belief that she continued a sexual relationship with that man knowing what he did to the baby! This is not a pleasant read I did finish it however as so many reviews were positive and I wanted to be fair.

I am so pleased that this was a free book because if I had contributed to this person's wealth I would not be happy. One person found this helpful. Was not a whole book very dissapointed.

This is the beginning part of Long Blue Line and I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of inspirational, true stories! This was an interesting book to read. It was a quick read but full of lots of drama and events and moments that define this girl's life. It's so brutally honest and intriguing, you can't help but cringe thinking about yourself at that age and all the ridiculous thoughts that you had.

This is "16 and Pregnant" but without the cameras and the paychecks and the celebrity status. It's very real and gritty and heartbreaking. I don't have kids but if I did, I would have my pre-teen or teen daughter read this in a second. See all reviews.
