When high-school junior Ashley Salazar learned she was pregnant, she immediately started a blog to document the difficult, life-altering experience. Little did she know how life-altering it would actually be. Later, she applied online to be considered for the cast of MTV’s hit show 16 & Pregnant. The show responded quickly and her story will be told as the season 2 finale in a special 90-minute episode aired in December 2010. Her memoir takes the viewer further back and further forward, and chronicles the tortured indecision she faces as she decides whether its best for her baby to give her up for adoption or take the dramatic step toward motherhood.

5Great Book!!!!!!!!  Apr 29, 2014 By Kathy McNeill
I loved reading about Ashley's life. My husband and I adopted our youngest son when he was just 6 weeks old! This book helped me to understand what my sons birth mother went through...she loved him with all her heart, but knew she couldn't provide for him. Ashley, you did the most loving, caring and bravest thing for Callie. Don't listen to anyone who says any differently....let them walk a mile in your shoes before they judge you!

4Well written with a lot of feeling  May 01, 2013 By Diana M Hart
This book really documented this young mothers experience with adoption. Throughout the whole book it was almost like you could actually feel her pain. The boom was well written and heartfelt. The only thing I didn't like was that it was sad and a little depressing, but the message she gave was clear. I think this book will really help young girls.
