COMPLICATED CHOICES is a young adult contemporary novel.
High school senior Claire Jackson’s life shatters after an unplanned pregnancy.
Not hers, her mother’s.
With no father named on baby Harry’s birth certificate and their mother sinking into despair, Claire finds herself knee deep in diapers, streams of baby barf, and mountains of laundry. Not only does Harry rob Claire of her freedom, but also her future when her mother uses her college funds for day care.
Claire’s uncle offers to replenish the funds on the condition Harry is given up for adoption. With a troubled and unstable mother, Claire must take control and choose: trade Harry for money and return to her former life, or fight for him.
The stakes run high when a baby is involved, and the choices are complicated.
