What you Left Behind is an amazing book of the struggles young teens go through when they have a baby. The struggles are real and trying to balance parenthood, school and just everyday life is so much harder then most believe.
Add to all that........ cancer, and then death and you have something you as a teen will most always struggle to understand.
This book tells the story of a 17 year old "couple". She has cancer and gets pregnant. He tries to get her to terminate the pregnancy so she can continue having her cancer treatments but she will not do it. She wants to have the baby and continue with her treatments after the baby is born. Before she dies she leave a trail of journals for him to find that lead him on an emotional journey with feelings that will make you giggle, smile and flat out bawl your eyes out.
