Slam by Nick Hornby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved every bit of this wonderful tale about growing up, making mistakes and getting things right.
This book has everything a modern teenage story needs.
We all know the story about a teenage girl getting pregnant. We had that before and we still see it in most tv shows. But this time it is not about the girl, it's about the boy who got her pregnant and sixteen-year-old Sam is so not ready for something like this.
The story is narrated from his point of view and sometimes he has visions of his future life as a father. Sam tries to deals with the new situation in a way, that made me love until my belly hurt just to drive tears in my eyes a few pages further.
I really enjoyed watching him through a process of great change and growing up.
The author Nick Hornby did a great work, showing the readers all the emotions that trouble the main characters.
Definitely a must-read.
Best wishes KJ
