According to Amazon, this book is suitable for age level 12-18, grade level 7-12.

There are three books in the Blue Moon Chronicles series; this is number 1.

I couldn't readily come up with more than a total of 9 ratings, which is much less than I like to see before posting a book. But the average ratings of them is very high. Too, the book is in its fourth edition, which I have to think speaks well of it.

Book Description (from Stephanie Morrill's website)
By now Abbie Hoyt should be used to not fitting in. She hasn’t since she got pregnant at fifteen. But five years later, as her son begins kindergarten, Abbie wrestles anew with where she does—and doesn’t—belong. It’s not with her old high school friends, who are partying their way through college. Or with the other mothers at Owen’s school. They look at her like she carries some kind of disease. Abbie’s not even sure she fits into her sister’s life now that Skylar is getting married.

When wedding festivities throw Abbie back into the company of her ex-boyfriend, Chris Ross, the questions only get worse. Maybe Chris still loves her like she loves him, but what college-age guy wants to be saddled with a five-year-old? And how selfish would she be to ask that of him?

Abbie is used to the world throwing stones—she knows how to protect herself. But can she figure out how to open up and trust again before she throws away a chance at happiness…for good?

Comments: The book is suitable for girls around high school age.

You're referring to the link after "Book Description" in the template part of the post. The program automatically created the link. I didn't really want it, but I just left it be. Then, I failed to check it to see if it actually was right. The link in the introduction part of the post, that I created, was good, as well as the ones at the bottom of the post giving the links to the ebook in different formats. Thanks for letting me know about the issue, I've fixed it.

Those files contain classified information. I wanted to read this book, but now I'm too worried.

What would you do?
