Summary: Ginny McKensie's life is spiraling out of control. Finished with college, she should have been planning her wedding. After all, Ginny and Josh were made for each other—everyone said so. Except the love of her life didn't agree. Now Ginny is back in her hometown, unwillingly single, and stuck in a dead-end job. When she discovers she's pregnant, Ginny is convinced her life is ending. Instead of planning a future with Josh, she's learning the truth about morning sickness, juggling bills, and seeing just how far designer jeans can stretch. Her life-plan never included dating again (not even with her too-hot new boss), or being a single mother at 23. Now, with the help of her best friends, Annie and Jen, Ginny must try to re-imagine—and rebuild—a life she never wanted.
Review: Ginny McKensie, the main character is young woman who has just finished college and works as a nanny; it may seem like she has the perfect life, that is until she finds out she's PREGNANT. Ginny might not have seen the pregnancy as a bad thing if it didn't come as a shock and if she wasn't still trying to get over her ex-boyfriend, Josh. Ginny has two roommates, Annie and Jen; Annie is also a nanny and works at the local theatre, and Jen works for an Event Planning company. I must admit, I had mixed feelings while I was reading this book; Ginny's character just seemed to be such a Debbie Downer from the time she found out she was pregnant, up until it seemed like things were starting to look up for her. Jen's character, to me, seemed to be a little bit too overbearing and take charge, but I absolutely LOVED Annie's character; she was funny, carefree, and just out there. Overall, I thought the book was really cute, but I kind of had a feeling of how it was going to end…must've been my writer's instincts kicking in!!
