"There's a box in the back of Audrey's closet that she rarely thinks about. Inside is a letter, seventeen years old, from a mother she's never met, handed to her by the woman she's called Mom her whole life. Being adopted, though, is just one piece in the puzzle of Audrey's life--the picture painstakingly put together by Audrey herself, consisting not only of the greatest family ever but of a snarky, loyal, sometimes infuriating best friend Rose, and a sweet, smart musician boyfriend, Julian. But when Audrey realizes that she's pregnant, she feels something--a tightly sealed box in the closet corners of her heart--crack open, spilling her dormant fears and unanswered questions all over the life she loves. Almost two decades ago, a girl in Audrey's situation made a choice, one that started Audrey's entire story. Now Audrey is paralyzed by her own what-ifs and terrified by the distance she feels growing between her and her best friend Rose. Down every possible path is a different unfamiliar version of her life, and as she weighs the options in her mind, she starts to wonder--what does it even mean to be Audrey Spencer?"--

The book itself was written quite artistically, with emotions and decisions skillfully woven into the protagonist's life. However, I felt that certain choices were not supported as they should have been. I understand that the author is writing from one stand point, but I personally feel a different way regarding the topic. She was also good at fleshing out the side characters, and while some still blur a bit for me in names, I did enjoy reading about Olivia. I would recommend this to people only under the conditions that they realize that pregnancy is controversial and they wouldn't choose selfishly.
