The Best and Hardest Thing

Pat Brisson

from the book...

Fifteen-year-old Molly Biden has always been studious, dependable, some might even say saintly. And she’s sick of herself. So when she spots mysterious bad boy Grady Dillon, it doesn't take Molly long to devise a plan to become someone new, someone who will attract Grady’s attention. And attract him she does. But when Molly discovers she’s pregnant, she realises too late that her makeover has gone much further than she ever intended.

Told in a series of poems, from haiku to sonnets to free verse, The Best and Hardest Thing is the story of a good girl who makes a bad choice - and then has to figure out where to go from there.
