Hooked: A Review

It took me a long time to read this one.

It is not a bad story at all.  It is wonderfully written. It is the coming-of-age story of Thea.  She is totally in love with Will.  She even loves his lazy eye.  During her senior year she discovers she is pregnant.  Her mom and best friend just assume she will have an abortion, but Thea can't go through with it.  To gain some normalcy in her life she clings to this old picture of her as a child wearing a crocheted bikini.  She decides to increase her crocheting skills and learn to re-create the bikini.  The crocheting calms her down in her crazy world of teen-motherhood.  This book covers the trials of being a mother and being young.

This is a great representation of motherhood and crocheting (as I dabble in both).  It took a while, but I really started to feel a connection to Thea and what she was going through.

3/5 stars
