Baby Love


In stock


The peerless Jacqueline Wilson returns with a deftly handled and emotionally engaging story of teen pregnancy and unexpected friendship set at the dawn of the 1960s.

A heartbreaking, compelling and timely story for older readers about teen pregnancy, family trouble and unlikely friendships, set in 1960.

Sent away to keep her secret . . . 

When Laura meets a French exchange student, Leon, she is flattered by his interest in her. She’s never had any sort of boyfriend before.

One night, Leon walks Laura home – and her life will never be the same again.

Things start to change for Laura – first her moods, and then her body. Laura isn’t prepared for what she learns next – and doesn’t even know how it could have happened.

When her family learns her secret, they are horrified. Sent away to save them from shame, Laura meets girls just like herself, whose families have given up on them – and they become a family for each other at the most difficult time in all their lives.

Not suitable for younger readers.
