The book The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez is a positive book to read because it teaches readers lessons on stereotypes and discrimination of teen pregnancies. The main character, Gaby,  is the daughter, sister, and sister in law of teen mothers. With this family tradition everyone expected Gaby to follow in these footsteps and become a teen mother as well. Unlike the rest of Gaby’s family, she was involved in honors classes, sports and other extracurricular activities. During Gaby’s senior year of high school each student had to come up with a independent, year long project. After a long time of trying to come up with a project, she thought of the perfect idea,she decided to fake her own pregnancy. Throughout the entire project Gaby stayed strong and didn’t let the rumors or rude comments get to her.

People should read this book to see what teen mothers go through and learn the stereotypes and discriminations against teen moms. Also, this book teaches how to stay strong during hardships.

A negative about the book could be that it could be taken offensively to teen mothers. Actual teen moms don’t have the option to say what they are going through is fake and have everything turn back to normal, so teen mothers have the potential to think their futures are over by having a child as judged by the reactions in this book.

I would give this book a 5/5. Because it was a very interesting book that keeps you on the edge of your seat and you don’t want to put down until the end.
