Ok. Don't roll you eyes ( I, did) but I had to read this book. Why, you ask? For, several reasons. The first being that, I am the result of a teen pregnancy and it shaped my life in ways that I can't fully understand or comprehend. The second being that, many of my friends and family members had children as teens and for the most part family/friends were happy for them ( I don't understand why).
The third but not final reason is that, with all the resources available to prevent pregnancy, it continues to happen at a relatively large scale.
I hoped that, My Teenage Dream could give me some insight into this teen pregnancy, phenomenon. It didn't but it did help me to understand and have a bit more compassion for, Farrah. Farrah, opens up, emotionally and you can finally get an understanding of, why, she is angry, has such a hard exterior and doesn't let people "in."
Farrah is very open with her sexuality and her sex life, so if it isn't something you are comfortable with, pass on this particular book. She also gives an in depth look into her relationship with, Derek (the father of her child). This is perhaps the best part of the book because it is not covered in the Teen Mom, television series. This personal account is heartfelt.
The books is a short, fast read and if you have a few hours to spare and are interested in, Farrah's background story, give it a try. The writing isn't exceptional, but she is just telling her story --- her life -- not writing an epic tale.
