Randi Pink's unforgettable YA novel demonstrates the extent young women and their families went to deal with teen pregnancies, pre Roe v Wade.

In rural Georgia, 14-year-old Izella is wise beyond her years, but burdened with the responsibility of her 16-year-old sister, Ola, who has just found out she's pregnant. Their mother, Evangelist Flossie Murphy, believes her daughters too pious to ever find themselves in that kind of trouble.

The youngest narrator, their 13-year-old neighbor, Missippi, is also pregnant, but doesn't fully understand the extent of her predicament. When her father sends her to Chicago to have her twin babies, she meets the final narrator, 15-year-old flower child, Susan, who is white and pregnant.

Randi Pink is the author of Into White, also published by F&F. She lives with her family and two rescue dogs in Birmingham, AL, where she works for a branch of National Public Radio.

Editorial Reviews

Into White:"Pink is careful to never allow the story itself to fall into agenda-pushing. Instead, she allows Toya to explore the gray areas teens negotiate as their identities shift and as their belief systems are challenged. This debut ought to inspire readers to have conversations among themselves about family, empathy, community, and respect for others." -Booklist, starred review"Pink isn't afraid of being provocative . . . and the book dives into thorny issues of identity, self-image, and the internal effects of racism in a strikingly frank way." -Publishers Weekly
