When Evelyn decided to piss off her parents with a bad reputation, she wasn't planning to ruin her valedictorian status. She also wasn't planning to fall for Todd-the guy she was just using for sex. And she definitely wasn't planning on getting pregnant. When Todd turns his back on her, Evelyn's not sure where to go. Can a distant mother, a cheating father, an angry best friend, and a (thankfully) loving aunt with adopted daughters of her own help Evelyn make the heart-wrenching decisions that follow? With the popularity of "Juno," "Teen Mom," and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," this novel has a built-in audience. Gripping, heartfelt, and responsible, "Me, Him, Them, and It "is not to be missed!

I'm all up in my feelings right now, and probably shouldn't write this review, but I can't stop myself. Evelyn; or Evie is your basic 16-year-old. She's testing the waters, went from Goody-two-shoes, to "Bad Evie" all to try and punish her cold and distant parents. But things, of course, bite her in the butt when she finds out that she is pregnant.

This is one teen pregnancy book that I feel really truly got the thoughts of a pregnant teen down. From not wanting to think about it to almost loving it and wanting to keep it, to finally making a decision that is best for everyone involved. Though I was upset with how Evie made that decision, I understood it. She was scared, even if she wouldn't admit it to herself or anyone else; you could just feel it in the writing.
The last few chapters had me in tears, because I knew after the rash decision she made how she would feel. And of course, this is what happened. Though the ending wrapped everything up in a great little bow, I am glad to see that Evie grew so much during her senior year.
