It started as a school project…but turned into so much more.Growing up, Gaby Rodriguez was often told she would end up a teen mom. After all, her mother and her older sisters had gotten pregnant as teenagers; from an outsider’s perspective, it was practically a family tradition. Gaby had ambitions that didn’t include teen motherhood. But she wondered: how would she be treated if she “lived down” to others' expectations? Would everyone ignore the years she put into being a good student and see her as just another pregnant teen statistic with no future? These questions sparked Gaby’s school project: faking her own pregnancy as a high school senior to see how her family, friends, and community would react. What she learned changed her life forever, and made international headlines in the process.In The Pregnancy Project, Gaby details how she was able to fake her own pregnancy—hiding the truth from even her siblings and boyfriend’s parents—and reveals all that she learned from the experience. But more than that, Gaby’s story is about fighting stereotypes, and how one girl found the strength to come out from the shadow of low expectations to forge a bright future for herself.

I don't think I'll read this one, mainly because the movie was so bad and even though the book claims to have a good message I just don't get what it's trying to teach me. Yes, I get that stereotypes are bad, but let's face it. If you get knocked up as a teen it's going to be difficult to succeed ...

1.0 The Pregnancy Project: A Memoir
The writing seemed very juveline, and this girl is supposed to be 18. The backstory about her family took up a good half, and it dragged on. The actual content about her MONTHS pretending to be pregnant were only a few pages. The same thoughts about her family being disappointed repeated incessantly...
