The Best and Hardest Thing - Pat Brisson This book is written in verse from the point of view of fifteen year old Molly. She hates being considered a goody two shoes so she starts dressing differently and attracts the attention of the school bad boy Grady. When she finds out she is pregnant she struggles with the decisions she has to make. Does she want to keep the baby? Molly is a frustrating teenager, her grandmother is not shy about telling Molly to be careful and even provides her with contraceptives. She tried so hard to attract Grady even though he is clearly just using her. Even though Molly was completely frustrating, she also made some hard choices. I did want to shake her for making bad choices but I also found she was not completely clueless. She does not shy away from responsibility, and does not try to blame anyone else for the choices she has made.
