Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Returning to territory first explored in Spellbound, McDonald focuses on a high school dropout who was pregnant with one child already. "Readers get a strong sense of Aisha's world--the projects, her battles with the welfare system, her friends and their families--and the ribbing between friends reads genuine," wrote PW. Ages 12-up.
