Two months after her boyfriend, Josh, dies in a hazing accident, high school senior November discovers she’s pregnant. Having to tell her mother is hard enough, but Josh’s parents’ reaction is even more devastating: they hire a lawyer to try to take her baby away from her. Josh’s cousin, Jericho, wants to help November however he can, but he’s still dealing with his own sense of responsibility for Josh’s death. The sequel to the Coretta Scott King Honor Book The Battle of Jericho pulls no punches as it explores—with Sharon M. Draper’s trademark keen insight into how teenagers think, feel, and speak—the difficult decisions and harsh realities of teen pregnancy.
