This little thing with the perfect face and hands doing
nothing but counting on me. And me wanting nothing else but to run
crying into my own mom''s room and have her do the whole
It''s not going to happen....
Bobby is your classic urban teenaged boy -- impulsive, eager,
restless. On his sixteenth birthday he gets some news from his
girlfriend, Nia, that changes his life forever. She''s pregnant.
Bobby''s going to be a father. Suddenly things like school and
house parties and hanging with friends no longer seem important as
they''re replaced by visits to Nia''s obstetrician and a social
worker who says that the only way for Nia and Bobby to lead a
normal life is to put their baby up for adoption.
With powerful language and keen insight, Johnson looks at the male
side of teen pregnancy as she delves into one young man''s struggle
to figure out what "the right thing" is and then to do it. No
matter what the cost.
