    I always find published diaries a little hard to swallow because I think it's rare that real diaries have the sort of story arc that these stories often adhere to About ten pages into this book something about it felt very off the diary entries didn't sound like diary entries and the teen author didn't sound like a teen The narrator's infatuation with a new boy in her class and her incredibly low opinion of herself was so over the top that you just knew this was going to be some sort of after school special cautionary tale That's when I remembered hearing rumors that Go Ask Alice also edited by Beatrice Sparks wasn't a real diary I did a bit of internet research and discovered that my gut instinct about Annie's Baby was right on it's not a real diary And there is nowhere nowhere in the book where it is catalogued as fictionAnd this pisses me off to no end that Dr Sparks thinks she can make up whatever drivel she wants and then sell it as a real teen's story It's like she knows that she doesn't have the credibility to tell this cautionary tale as an adult but she's not willing to publish the story of a REAL teen mother either Because a real live girl wouldn't tell it the way that Dr Sparks WANTS it to be toldAll in all this story reads like something straight of the the Abstinence only curriculum complete with the girl feeling dirty and ashamed for having sex being totally appalled by the thought of abortion and feeling complete disdain for mothers who are on welfare At the end of the book she gives her baby up for adoption after raising her for several months and realizing that she just can't cut it as a mom This is the part that struck me as LEAST believable since 97% of teen moms do keep their babies and I doubt many of the remaining 3% give children up for adoption without making that decision during their pregnancy But seeing as this isn't a real life story Dr Sparks thought that giving the baby up was the best option and since she was writing the damn thing herself why not tie it up with neat hospital corners?Boo for adults that lie to children

    As a teenage mother I can say that this book is as far from realistic as it could be I have never in my life met a mother who would have thoughts about their child the way Annie felt for hers I was fifteen years old when I got pregnant and yes it was undoubtedly hard it still is but I have never ever wished my daughter were never born I have uestioned whether someone else would be better for her than me but I think that is normal for all new mothers in general This book is degrading to all teenage mothers it was written to make everyone see us as scum of the earth If it even is a real story that girl was the most incompetent fool I have ever heard of

    When I got this as a blind item for a uarter at my local library I thought well this sounds like it could be a good snark read and I might be surprisedThe time it sat on my book shelf the less I wanted to put myself through that I'm just being honest So I'm re donating it to the library I hope the next person enjoys this ORAND snarks it for me I'm not saying it was a bad book I just have low expectations for it Who knows I may regret re donating it D

    This book was a very sad and a very realistic book Again this girl is a girl who is a real person and goes through a lot in her lifetime This book is about a 14 year old girl She had a lot of friends she was pretty and she was really intelligent This cute boy approaches her and tells her that he was new and that he wanted to look for someone to hangout with Therefore she insisted and they became closer and closer and closer Sooner or later she goes out with him They had a pretty strong and good relationship as for now He invited her to a party and she goes to the party with him As he takes her home on the car he pulls over and asks her to have sex with him She denies it and then he insults her and abuses her as well At that time she really really wanted to apologize to him She did and she embarrassed him in front of the whole school which was pretty great for him After a while he just forgave her and things were good at that moment He then continues to abuse her and hit her It was way worse than she thought it was There was this one night where he took her to this house and he was really nice to her at first But only at first only When they entered the house he told her to strip for him She didn't want to but she knew she was trapped she denied it once again and he abuses her and kicks her out the house It was dark and that house was far from her home Imagine that They then got back together again and they had sex And still he kept abusing her At the end she gets pregnant and she now has to take care of her baby But he leaves her knowing that now she is pregnant with his child I think that this is a depressing book because she gets abused so badly by her boyfriend and she really did love him and gave her all that she got And all he did was abuse her and hit her and beat her up It doesn't even seem fair to her because he treats her like a dog and he gets what he wants all the way He leaves her with a baby and now shes all alone but with the help of her family

    Annie's Baby The Diary of Anonymous a Pregnant Teenager is a book written by Beatrice Sparks This is a very sad and hard to understand type of book It is about this regular girl in school with friends and everything was just normal One day some really cute guy started talkin to her because of some excuse that he was new and was looking for some friends to be with and just chill He was really nice and sweet to her All of the sudden it all changed between them two He was pressuring her to have sex with him She didn't want to That didn't stop him She was so submissive and apologized for anything she did wrong After a while they had sexual relations She ended up pregnant He left her because he didn't want the baby Then some time passed and went back together He asked her to do something really wrong This was the worst decision she ever made This is one of the best books I really liked it The thing i did not like at all is what she did to her baby Also she apologized to him everytime even though she wasn't doing anything wrong The pointof it is that here attitude towards him was at good at all

    I read this book because it relates to a school project I'm currently working on and also because I thought that I would give Ms Sparks yet another chance to redeem herself Nope I've read three of her so called edited books and my respect for her as a writer decreases and with every page In this particular diary the main character annoyed me even than Nancy in It Happened to Nancy a feat that I once deemed impossible Than again those two books are basically the same; a fourteen year old girl with divorced parents gets raped by her older boyfriend The only difference is that Nancy gets AIDS and Annie gets pregnant Annie was dim witted annoying and sometimes downright rude


  8. Angela Angela says:

    This book is trying to convince girls that if they have sex before they are married their life will be over and they will get pregnant and that baby will have a terrible life This is fucked up There’s literally a part where they mention and babies are being born “out of wedlock” This is because less people were getting married in the 90s because changing social norms Is that mentioned? No A baby can be happy even with only one mom or not in a normal home I literally had the most nuclear family one could have and I’m still very messed up So


  9. Jessica Jessica says:

    The book that I read was Annie’s Baby The Diary of Anonymous A Pregnant Teenager edited by Beatrice Sparks Beatrice Sparks is known for the understanding of young people The main character Annie then falls head over her heels for this new popular and rich 16 year old Danny Even though Annie is only 14 years old and he is older than she is she begins to think about this kid all the time Once Annie and Danny started dating she thought he was the perfect man because he cared for her made her feel special and always showed love and respect After months of dating she found out that Danny was the complete opposite of what she thought of After all his insults and mistreating she still stood with him and he did not mean the things he did and said and believed he will change Her main problem came when she found out that she was pregnant and Danny was the father She then went trough a face that she did not know what to do with the baby because her relationship with Danny was not the best she was young and her mother is hard to talk toThis book contains many emotions This book is composed of diary entries and these writings usually express one’s true and inner feelings This book pulls a reader in because of its detail and the feelings it portrays The details make you feel like as if you were in the characters shoes This book also had the common mistakes teenagers make and it makes the book feel as if one wrote it This book is one of those that one can relate too and understand easily The book is targeted towards teenagers especially female because the diary entries are portrayed through a female mind People who like to read about love this book might be for you In the book there are many topics revealed but he one that can apply to everyone is blind love Blind love it self can be seen differently this makes the book interesting This book is also for those teenagers who need to see examples of what no to do in life In conclusion you must read this book because it can be portrayed differently and it relates to teens

    After reading part of this book part of It Happened To Nancy part of Lucy In The Sky and all of Go Ask Alice I found it hard to believe that any of these books were actual diaries from anonymous teens The tone of the writing is the exact same It literally seems like it is the exact same girl in every one of these books just different scenarios
