Reviews

"A frank, thoroughly contextualized portrayal of Black teen motherhood."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Told with empathy and nuance, Pregnant Girl is a remarkable and heart-wrenching memoir from an inspiring leader."
-Booklist

"[T]his book is so much more than a memoir . . . .Her prose has the power to undo deep-set cultural biases about poverty and parenthood. It should be required reading for every lawmaker who will vote on whether to make the current child tax credit permanent policy."
-New York Times Book Review

"You will learn something important about race, poverty, and gender . . . And about how hope can win over adversity."
-Soledad O'Brien

"Pregnant Girl is not just a powerful memoir; it's an empowering guide for all of us. Nicole Lynn Lewis shows us that all our journeys matter, and the beauty of those journeys is not just the destination but the lessons of the path. I would highly recommend this book to all."
-Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood, author of The Other Wes Moore

"[Nicole Lynn Lewis] makes a compelling case for the multifaceted approach that is necessary to ensure that all young people-particularly our youth of color and young parents-are able to make the choice to pursue a college education, earn a degree, and lead thriving lives. . . . It is an approach that is deeply rooted in the belief and call to action that is core to this book-that all young people are worthy of an education, worthy of resources and opportunity, and worthy of our every effort to help them reach their potential and soar."
-Dr. John King, US secretary of education under President Obama
