Body of Review
Going Forward: A Prequel was a coming of age page turner. Emily Scott’s teenage angst and real life turmoil will grab the reader until the very end. Teenage pregnancy is very relevant in society today and K.M. Galvin’s take also entwines the abuse of drugs and other triumphs and tragedies young adults face when growing up. What sets this story apart from the rest is the use of language and adult scenarios that plague our teenagers. The ending was a very pleasant surprise leaving the reader wanting more.
What I Did Not Like:
There wasn’t anything that I did not like.
What I Did Like:
The co-mingling of teenage angst with young adult triumphs and trials. The protagonist never gave up despite all the obstacles she faced. Any woman reading this story will understand the message and will be able to face any obstacles.
