Synopsis via Goodreads
It’s senior year, and while Kenzie should be looking forward to prom and starting college in the fall, she is mourning the loss of her father. She finds solace in the one person she trusts, her boyfriend, and she soon finds herself pregnant. Kenzie’s boyfriend and mother do not understand her determination to keep the baby. She is sent to southern Spain for the summer, where she will live out her pregnancy as a cook’s assistant on a bull ranch, and her baby will be adopted by a Spanish couple.

Alone and resentful in a foreign country, Kenzie is at first sullen and difficult. She begins to open her eyes and her heart to the beauty that is all around her and inside of her.

This book has the potential to be a very powerful, beautiful, and poignant read and I just hope that it turns out to be just that.

I read Kephart's You Are My Only, which also had a great, interesting premise. I didn't love it, but I'd be willing to read more by her. Hope you get to read and review this one!

Honestly I don't think this is very original. We have a shocking number of pregnant students every year and they ALL keep them! There is NEVER another choice made. As a happily adopted child this makes me sick when there are SO many out there desperate for their own child; I'm interested to see whether this is a fabulous adoption story or whether she decides to keep it. Here's our Waiting on Weds
