208 pages
Julia and Ruth have been unlikely best friends since they first met in Sunday school: Ruth was standing on the Bible-crafts table belting out "Jesus Loves Me." Now that they're a year away from graduation, they're putting the finishing touches on their getaway plans. But their dream of a funky big-city loft and rich, interesting older men is threatened when preacher's daughter Ruth goes to a wild party without studious Julia, and all hell breaks loose. Ruth gets pregnant; Julia gets creative. Determined to support her friend and stay on track for life after high school, Julia comes up with a plan that will require all her intelligence, compassion, ingenuity and patience. Drawing on some great (and some not-so-great) works of literature, Julia proves that you can learn a lot just by opening up a book.

Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show. —Charles Dickens,David CopperIeld
I’m not going to lie to you. My opening line may not be as brilliant as te opening line ofDavid Copperfield, but not many lines are. I adore Dickens. I realize tat tis is a peculiar and deeply uncool confession from a seventeen-year-old girl, but I can’t elp tat. My book is sort of likeDavid Copperfield—it’s about parents and cildren and te abuse of power—but don’t freak out and stop reading just because of tat. It’s not nearly as long asDavid Copperfield, it doesn’t ave undreds of caracters wit weird names, and it’s full of sex and foul language. Well, not full, exactly. But tere is a bit of bot. Maybe in two undred years te first line ofTHe Lit Reportby Julia Riley will be on a test in some futuristic ig scool were everyone wears identical silver jumpsuits and
