Every Little Thing in the World

Review of: Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont
Release date: March 2010
Pages: 282
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Grade: A

Sydney Biggs is 16 years old and somewhat of a rebel. After her and her best friend Natalia sneak out to a party one night her mother ships her off to her father for the Summer so he can deal with her. Her father tells Sydney that he is sending her off to a wilderness camp for a month. The only problem is that Sydney is pregnant, and she needs to decide whether she wants an abortion or not within a very short period of time.

She plans to not think about her pregnancy at all during the month that she is away but then Natalia shows up on the trip with her and is a constant reminder of Sydney's situation. In the end what will Sydney choose to do?

This was a fantastic read. As soon as I read about it I wanted to get a copy right away and when I got my hands on one it definitely did not disappoint. I felt so bad for Sydney during the whole book. She was constantly trying to figure out what the right thing to do was and it didn't help that her best friend was always pushing her opinion on Sydney. All of the characters were great and I liked the ending. It was a great story about a huge decision that a young girl has to make.
