about

When Annie discovers she's pregnant by her boyfriend, she's devastated. She has never felt so alone. With no one she can talk to, she pours her heart out to her diary, confiding her feelings of panic, self-doubt, and the desperate hope that some day she can turn her life around. She decides she wants to keep her baby and dreams of loving and caring for this little person. But after the baby is born, it's in her diary that she faces the agonizing question: Can she really raise this child on her own?

Beatrice Sparks is a family and adolescent therapist who edited the diary that formed the basis forGo Ask Alice,and has since edited many diaries on topics such as gangs, AIDS, and teen pregnancy in the 1988 Annie's Baby. She lives in Provo, UT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! I could not put this book down. I have re-read it 3 times now (after a longer period of time went by). It's even more compelling since it is a real girl's diary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Book Was Awesome!! This book was the BEST book I have ever read. I recommend it for teens. It's the kind of book you can't put down, you just want to see what happens and it is a true story also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD! This is a good book. Tells teens not to get to involved with your boyfriend. Poor Annie got tricked. Girls need to be more self confident, and learn to say NO. She was still a kid, and having to take care of a kid?! That's harsh...not to mention that the DAD just left. tsk tsk tsk Guys also need to learn to take repsonsibility for their actions. All in All this is a good book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I thought this book was amazing. It was so different from the other stuff I have read, but I really enjoyed reading it. When I got to the last couple pages I didn’t want it to be over, that’s how much I enjoyed it. It definitely gives out a message to teenagers and informs them on how serious a pregnancy can really be. I do recommend this book. It’s a wonderful book, and once you start to read it, it’s hard to put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Was A Great Read I couldnt stop myself from reading this book. It was just too good to put down. I made me think, i am never getting pregnant as a teen. never. I would recommend this to everyone who is looking for a good read, or is thinking about having sex for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent book. Annie's Baby: The Diary of Anonymous, a Pregnant Teenager was an amazing book. I read it two summers ago and I still remember how excellent it was. You get so worked up in the story. I suggest you buy this book. It is a great find. It really opens your eyes about the sensitive subject of teen pregnancy. Read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from annies baby This was one of the most touching books I have read. It made me cry over and over again, if only more teens read this book it might make them think twice about getting into that kind of stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Annie's Baby A very good book for teens. It's a story of a good girl who makes a few wrong decisions and ends up with an abusive boyfriend who gets her pregnant and refuses to help her with her child. The story may help some teen girls not to make the same mistakes that Annie did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOW! This book was so blunt and real that I know I will never get pregnant (at least while I'm a teen). It kind of made me feel sad, and a bit down. I definetley wouldn't recommend this book for someone who needs an uplifting book. It was real, but too sad for me to really recommend to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By Far the best book I have ever read In the book, Annie's Baby, I was so touched and had such a rollercoaster of emotions it thrilled me. But it also made me cry, and made me think about thing that don't seem all too big when you are compared to what you deal with in everyday life. It is by far the best book that I have ever read, and I read a lot. Bravo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent book!! When I read this book, it brought tears to my eyes. It is remarkably well-written, and hopefully, this will prevent some teens of today from getting pregnant. No one should have to deal with some of the things she had to deal with. This would be a good book to do a book report on.It definitely gets two thumbs up from me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding... This book had so many complacations it was crazy. From rape to adoption. I felt it taught me a lesson but also was a bit cluttered with all of the events happening. It was emotional, very deeply, but also taught young teens the horror of sex and new boyfriends.
