This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I’m a bit torn about how I feel about this one but I liked it overall.
Lana is definitely a really difficult character to like but I think there are perfectly sound reasons for that- she’s still just an immature kid and appears to be suffering from postnatal depression or maybe she really was just clueless and selfish.
As infuriating as a lot of her actions were, I still found myself drawn into the book and eager to know how things turned out. The writing itself is very good- easy to read and I’m a bit torn about how I feel about this one but I liked it overall. The writing itself is very good- easy to read and told in a very coherent fashion. It wasn’t too long or too short; the story was told in the perfect length and every page had meaning to the book.
It wasn’t perfect and it wasn’t amazing but it was interesting and certainly easily kept me reading until the very last word. That girls who think having a baby at the age of 15 is considered to be the best way to start a mature life They’re crazy, aren’t they?? Lana Spiggs, what does she do with her brains??? Abby, she thinks about Les. And having a baby, of course This really lets me down I don’t mean Dyan Sheldon isn’t good. I’m just disappointed with Lana. But what would you do if you’re already with a baby at the age of Menggambarkan dengan jelas apa yang ada dipikiran perempuan-perempuan muda yang tidak terlalu mengenal kondom, kurang berkomunikasi dengan orang tua terutama ibu, ketahuan banget ngga nonton stasiun tv khusus anak muda yang seldon mengkampanyekan “Say No to Free Sex” tapi sudah terlalu terburu-buru ingin merasakan seks.
Dan parahnya, pengen hamil. Dyan Sheldon, kenapa sih, selalu mengurung nalar pembaca di kepala tokoh utama? Kalau saj Ide cerita: Kalau saja dia berhenti melakukan hal itu atau editornya berhenti berusaha memasukkan tulisan-tulisan ngga bermaknanya ini ke penerbit, mkes penerbit-penerbit sial itu berhenti menerbitkan buku yang hanya membuat bumi to bertambah panas karena diperlukan sekian ratus ribu batang pohon untuk menjadikan buku-buku tidak berguna ini sampai di tangan pembaca, tapi setelah membaca buku-bukunya pun, para pembaca tidak bertambah pintar sedikit juga Pembaca akan menjadi lebih pintar.
Dan pohon-pohon itu tidak ditebang untuk sia-sia. I can’t believe how thoughtless and irresponsible the MC was in this book. How could she even consider having a baby at 15 to be the best way to start a “mature” life?
I had hoped that things would work out in the end but no.

Book Review: And Baby Makes Two
On GoodReads one day Xyan saw a book called “My Worst Best Friend” and the thing that struck me about the book was it’s cover so I did a quick Amazon search and saw it was by Dyan Sheldon the book, not the cover and that, luckily enough, she had a new book coming out called And Baby Makes Two which I was able to pre-order half price.
Not wanting to pass up such a beautiful looking book I quickly ordered it and awaited it’s arrival.
I was browsing my shelves for a bit of light reading and saw that at just over pages And Baby Makes Two was going to be my reading choice on that particular night. Although I said And Baby Makes Two was a new release, it’s actually znd re-release and was originally published qnd which abby more sense as to why the book appears to be set in anv nineties Discmans, oh how I miss thee.
I was interested to see how Dyan Sheldon would write a teenage pregnancy – we’ve seen and read it loads of times, after all – and it’s fair to say that Lana is much like most teenage girls you see on Jeremy Kyle – thinking a baby means happiness and happy every after et al when in reality it’s not all sweetness and light.
The way in which Dyan portrays it makes it sound so unglamorous that any youngster even thinking of having a baby ought to be given this book to read. It would definitely make them think twice. Of course she,don the baby actually comes along, Lana already seems to have troubles as her relationship with her mother is tenuous to say the least. It’s due to her mother kind of that Lana meets Les, in McDonalds of all places. At first it seems like the dream relationship – as dreamy as a relationship can be when you’re a lying bby your age and b keeping him away from your mother.
It all starts to go wrong there after as Lana finds herself aand at fifteen and Les isn’t exactly jumping with joy. The months pass fairly quickly and Lana’s pregnancy isn’t too much a focal point though it is enough, as I said, to put any teenager off wanting to have a baby.
The most impact of the entire book comes after Lana has had her little girl and Dyan Sheldon is able to ram home the message that looking after a baby really isn’t as fun as it may sound. I admit I found myself cringing as Lana struggles to deal with her little girl.
I could see how hard it was and I found myself also getting annoyed at Lana at times because when she moaned about not being able to go out with friends and things I just mkes she was being utterly selfish. Having to deal with a screaming baby was what she had signed up for and for her not to know how it was really going to be was rather naive. The fact that she also refused her mother’s help – calling her all names under the sun in the process – made it all the worse. I struggled to truly see why Lana and her mother didn’t get on and I thought Lana acted petulantly whenever her mother came up in the book which was regularly and not without the ajd – Wicked Witch being a firm favourite.
I did like Lana though, even though I wanted to grab her by the shoulders and give her a good shake for being so naive and stupid but it’s to be expected because she is only No one else really hung around for the entire book, bar Lana’s mum who I actually maies mind. Les, Lana’s kinda boyfriend, does pop up from time to time but I tow really liked him. I really enjoyed And Baby Makes Two, it was an incredibly quick read and it only took me around 3 hours to complete the entire book, which makes for a good evening read I must say!
There’s nothing like being sheldonn to start a book one night and finish it before going to bed. It’s a testament to Dyan Sheldon’s writing that I pretty much read it in one bby and I’ll definitely be on the look out for Dyan’s other books!
If you’re looking for a bit of light reading, this is well worth picking dyna and, to be honest, every teenager even contemplating having a baby ought to give this a read.

Fifteen year old Lana Spiggs meets her perfect guy Les on her birthday at McDonalds, and after being in a relationship for a couple of weeks, she falls pregnant. Not worried by the fact that she would be throwing her life away, she decides to keep sheldpn baby. She was so driven makex this belief she abandoned her family and friends to be with a guy who didn’t want anything to do with her.
Like a fairy tale, but in reverse. Instead of the Prince’s kiss waking me up, it put me to sleep. This book definitely made me think deeper about being too lose with your body and living in the moment, because these are serious issues and have negative life changing consequences. You need to be careful with decisions like these and make sure the time is right before you do anything drastic like getting pregnant.
This book is a great reflection of the thousands of girls getting pregnant at an early age, and displays the consequences significantly. Mar 23, Kayla rated it liked it. This story is about a silly, day dreaming, 15 year old. All she wants to do is grow up. She wants marriage, a home, a family and to be an actress. She is so annoying and got on my nerves.
