This week I'm picking:
Immaculate by Katelyn Detweiler
Expected publication: May 26th 2015 by Viking Children's Books
Mina is seventeen. A virgin. And pregnant.
Mina is top of her class, girlfriend to the most ambitious guy in school, able to reason and study her way through anything. But when she suddenly finds herself pregnant—despite having never had sex—her orderly world collapses. Almost nobody believes Mina’s claims of virginity. Her father assumes that her boyfriend is responsible; her boyfriend believes she must have cheated on him. As news of Mina’s story spreads, there are those who brand her a liar. There are those who brand her a heretic. And there are those who believe that miracles are possible—and that Mina’s unborn child could be the greatest miracle of all.
Why I'm Waiting:
I generally avoid overly religious books, but this one looks like it has something more to it. Plus, I've read some really good books in the past that do deal with questions about religion without being religious, or trying to promote religion. Either way, it looks like it will be a very good read.
