Choices (Burchett)
Katrina L. Burchett
Five teenage girls make decisions about boyfriends and premarital sex: Shauntice lives in a world of domestic abuse. Her dad beats her mother, so this Christian teen is not sure she wants a boyfriend. Angel has a mother who is never around, she doesn't know who her earthly father is and she doesn't care about the heavenly Father. She became promiscuous to fill a void. LaKeeta is a Christian, but instead of doing it God's way and waiting for marriage, she has sex out of wedlock. She is seventeen and pregnant. Bridgette feels strongly about abstaining from sex and she will not compromise her beliefs. But this young Christian still has her flaws. Hope is so shy that she's barely heard when she speaks. She lives a sheltered life because of her mother's strict rules, and the word 'sex' isn't in her vocabulary... until she suffers a loss. CHOICES is young adult fiction for mature readers.
