Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender has been on my shelves since I heard the author speak at a virtual Harper Collins Canada event last year, and when I saw Read With Angie was doing a readalong for it in February, I knew it was time to pick it up. Y’all, my heart was NOT READY!
“No guilt. No moment of awakening. No tearful repentance. My eyes slid over the signs and my heart remained unaffected. I’d made my decision long before we arrived. Those signs were just words.”
Reading a book about a 17-year old on a road trip across state lines to get an abortion may not sound like the greatest story, but in Unpregnant, Jenni Hendricks and Ted Caplan take this topic and spin it into a fast-paced, funny-at-times novel that also deals with the topic at hand.
