Fourteen-year-old Jaime is used to her best friend, Melissa, being the center of attention. Melissa wants to be a model—she’s beautiful, popular, and talented. There’s just one small problem—Melissa thinks she’s pregnant, and she wants Jaime’s help. But there’s not much Jaime can do. Melissa refuses to tell her parents; Jaime refuses to be the same old reliable doormat. She’s got a lead in the school play and a new friendship with Zach. Jaime is changing, too. And she’s sick of being stepped on!
Fifteen-year-old Kelly McWilliams’s debut novel is an inspiring story about friendship, choices, and learning how to shine.
Doormat is a short book, about 130 pages. It's pretty good though. Not my favorite though by a long shot. Doormat is about a girl named Jamie and her best friend since kindergarten, Mellisa. Mellisa finds out she's pregnat, at fourteen. The book is about how Mellisa deals with her pregnany. But even more so, Doormat is about Jamie (its Jamie talking) and how she struggles to help out Mellisa with everything.
The really cool thing about this book is that the author, Kelly McWilliams was about 15 when she wrote the book. I hope she writes more books!
