Legends and an Interesting Teen Pregnancy

THE INCONCEIVABLE LIFE OF QUINN has to be the most interesting and original story I've read all year. It follows Quinn, a teenager who discovers she's pregnant, even though she's never had sex before. So, the answer Quinn and her family are searching for is how?

Even with her predicament, all Quinn wants to do is carry on with her life as normally as possible, but it's hard to do when everyone is judging her. Relationships become strained with her friends and boyfriend because Quinn doesn't have the answers they're looking for. Of course everyone's go-to is that she's lying about everything, but Quinn truly has no idea what happened to her.

With her dad running for Congress, word about her pregnancy gets out quickly and gets blown over-the-top, as you can expect the media to do. While the beginning is a little slow, the author still keeps you turning page by page to discover the truth behind Quinn's pregnancy.

The bullying Quinn faces at school and at home (from other people harassing her, not her family) is so sad to see and it's probably how others in her shoes feel. Those girls may relate to this story a bit. One thing that I loved was that even thought Quinn and her dad's relationship isn't perfect, her parents and brother wanted to do everything they could to help her and it was so refreshing to see the family coming together rather than breaking apart.


Final Verdict: Initially, I was worried this was only going to be a typical repressed memory story, but there is so much more to it. I would recommend this to fans of myths, legends, finding yourself, and YA contemporary.
