This week’s theme: Let’s review a book. We all read; what have you read?
I would like to share Lucy V. Hay’s ‘Lizzie’s Story’ from The Decision series.
Lizzie is in her late teens and is set to go off to University when to her horror she discovers that she is pregnant. At first she is stunned and has no idea what to do about it. Her boyfriend doesn’t seem to want to know, her mother had a teenage pregnancy herself, and her father flits in and out of her life and evades responsibility.
A teenage pregnancy is a situation Lucy V Hay has been in herself in the past, and she writes with true feeling of the emotions and thoughts that her character Lizzie undergoes on first finding out she is having a baby.
Lucy V Hay cleverly writes five different scenarios which blend in seamlessly with each other, and all help to lead Lizzie to her eventual decision. Each one gives a different outcome on the problem which many teenage girls unfortunately find themselves in. In fact I would definitely say that any young girl newly pregnant would do well to read this book in order for her to make an informed decision about her future.
Lucy V. Hay is a novelist, script editor and blogger who helps writers via her Bang2write consultancy. She is the associate producer of Brit Thrillers DEVIATION (2012) and ASSASSIN (2015), both starring Danny Dyer. Lucy also helps organise The London Screenwriters’ Festival.
