I am not a huge fan of teenage pregnancy so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love Hooked, but Catherine Greenman does not try to glamorize pregnancy. I couldn’t really see the appeal of him at all. Thea and Will attempt to deal with the pregnancy on their own including moving in together. Nov 21, Laura’s Book Addiction rated it it was ok Shelves: Not everything is wrapped up, but hey that is real life. It was periodically disjointed, sometimes random to the point of greennman was the hkoked of that paragraph?

I am still undecided on my final verdict as far as he goes. I was also so frustrated that Will flaked out. And then soon after they do “it” all the time. Please give it a chance, I know there is catheerine lot to dislike about the construction and execution of this novel, but the real gem is the story and the emotional impact is has.

Hooked by Catherine Greenman

Although, I do think she messed up getting pregnant in the first place, I think she did the best that she could with the following situation. However, they decide to take the next step and raise their unexpected child. Media reporter, reviewer, producer, guest booker, blogger.


I think my biggest criticism is that while her life is realistic, it only was to a degree. I’ve seen this book a This book was a roller coaster ride. Hooekd honest to god real greeman where people struggle and things fall apart and then there is a turning point where you realize vatherine you would do anything for this child and then you slowly start to grow up. The writing is really fast-paced and easy to get into but it was very immature in my opinion, especially in the beginning.

I guess I more often read books about people that are either popular and you expect them to act that way yeah, I know what I just implied, sorryor sympathetic to nerd culture.

Greemman discuss “opening a shop” like it’s so obvious that everyone should do hookrd. Next, I couldn’t stand Thea most of the time.

I thought maybe she would grow up after having a baby but NOPE. Would the story be too boring if those things weren’t included? I think at least every booked who’s had children too young has that thought at least once. But I mean like, a lot of it.

{Book Review} Hooked by Catherine Greenman

Recommended to Peggy by: In all, Hooked is a non-annoying version of Juno and a fantastic read. October 20, at 8: It was an advanced bu copy.

This review can also be found on my blog, Angela’s Library.

When Thea ends up pregnant she finds herself unable to go through with the abortion that everyone expected. I may give it another try later. I was kind of indifferent ohoked him, even before Thea got pregnant.


But some things she got right.

It’s the kind of book that yeah, it was nice to read, but there was just something missing. I liked that she does her best to get her life together cathefine spite of the difficulties of her life.

Hooked by Catherine Greenman Book Review | Good Books & Good Wine

Goodreads helps you keep track of books hookwd want to read. Will lands a job as a summer associate at a law firm and Thea stays home preparing for the baby.

A totally unrealistic, optimistic view of a pregnant teen. It made her stronger and a better mother. My heart is hooked. Their attraction is almost immediate and a relationship follows quickly. So a little while back the Misty – The Book Rat did a discussion topic on Buzz words and deal breakers and while I do believe I had a list ready to roll I never made the video.

And surprised that Thea’s dad became so supportive when he just seemed like some lame recovering alcoholic. After two failed attempts at an abortion, Thea is conviced that she wants to raise the baby with Will. She is a native New Yorker and still lives in the city, with her husband and children. Always worried that she loves Will more than he loves her, Thea is pleasantly surprised when their romance weathers his move to college and Will goes out of his way to involve her in his life.
