I’m a HUGE fan of Lauren Baratz-Logsted, and she’s now venturing into the world of young adult fiction. Her novel, ANGEL’S CHOICE is due out next month, but you can pre-order now from Amazon.com. I, for one, look forward to reading it because I’m tired of some of the serial young-adult books that are out that simply take Sex and the City like storylines and make the characters 16. Where’s the real, the gritty, the meaty? If I know Lauren’s work, she’s going to pain a realistic story, full of all the nuances of life – funny, bittersweet, dramatic, etc., etc.

Read the descrip below and consider purchasing your copy. I don’t think you’ll be sorry.

All I remember is the sensation of things slipping away from me….

In one night Angel Hansen’s life changes forever: She has sex for the first time. Not that she remembers the act itself — not the pain or the pleasure. But she is left with something that will never let her forget it: an unplanned pregnancy.

Angel must make a choice. Abortion? Adoption? Keep it? None of these choices are easy and none of them are perfect. But there is one thing Angel is sure of. Whatever choice she makes, it must be the right one for her. Braced with that knowledge, Angel faces the toughest decision of her life.
