Thea Galehouse, adrift and under-motivated, is a junior at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School when she meets senior Will Weston and makes. Hooked by Catherine Greenman is not your typical pregnancy novel. There is no ‘ you will get pregnant and you will die.’ Hooked opens pretty. I am not a huge fan of teenage pregnancy so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love Hooked, but Catherine Greenman does not try to.

I love Cayherine Greenman, and I look forward to more books and works by her. As much as Thea tries at times, she cannot romanticize the idea, especially when her boyfriend Will makes it where she can’t stay with him for a while.
But what she does accomplish is paint a very accurate picture of the situation and how it affects everyone. I still think that its worth readin This was a gritty yet funny at time contemporary. The plot here is one that covers a large amount of time three or four years, I think in relatively geeenman words the book clocks in at less than pages.
There are cathrrine holes in the story as well like every other story. November 8, at 8: My main problem was the way time jumps.
Then Thea finds out she is pregnant and their relationship will There is no book on teen pregnancy that I will pass up, it’s a subject that for some reason, I love to read about. Read it Forward Read it first. My favorite character in the book was her father. In my free time I can be found binge watching The Office with my husband and baby, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring my neighborhood.
This story is just like a roller coaster. If you’re looking for an interesting, fast-paced book I’d recommend giving this one a change. Jan 28, Michelle rated it liked it Shelves: The most basic thing you’d expect from a teenage pregnancy book would be that it discusses the different options there are for people in that position, right?
Almost catherien it the author was trying too hard to make the characters sound witty and sarcastic. For instance, their parents agree to contribute toward the baby. Will is older, handsome, and perfect. It ggreenman showcase every single angle.
greenmxn October 22, at 2: She was adorable and I ended up really liking her. With Hooked’s mostly-likable protagonist and unique subject matter, Hooked was an entertaining read. So naturally I couldn’t wait to read this book. Will was just kind of meh, for me. Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself. If you’re looking for a decent contemporary that isn’t really deep but isn’t overly-light either, Hooked is the way to go.
So very often the young men who father these babies do not stick around to live up to their responsibilities. When a freak accident with the baby pushes Will farther away from Thea and he decides he can’t do it anymore Thea is on her own to care for their son with one person to turn to, her stiff, uptight father.

Feb 01, Maya Khan rated it really liked it Shelves: His parents were also supportive and helped them to find a place to live. Personally, I think it looks tacky and the title looks like a tattoo. No, it wasn’t perfect. I actually thought about not finishing it a few times, but the book itself wasn’t necessarily bad, so I figured that one day I would hooekd back to it.
She’s a strong woman with a good head on her shoulders. Will was dreamy at first and then gave a real picture of what happens a lot when a girl gets pregnant and there is a child brought into that relationship at such a young age. But that was not Thea at all. She worries that she loves will more than he loves her, thus he has the power in the greeman.
That is until she meets Will.
