A Librarian Reads…


The First Part Last by Angela Johnson

“Now” Bobby is a single teenage father raising his baby daughter on his own. “Then” he and Nia were a typical couple trying to figure out what to do with an unplanned pregnancy. As Bobby deals with sleepless nights, fighting to stay awake through classes, trips to the emergency rooms, and a mother who makes sure he knows it is all his responsibility, he also thinks about how he got where he is. The two stories weave together, asking and answering questions and leaving you guessing until the heartbreaking end.

Recommended for high school and up.
