St. Martin's Griffin

In this heart-wrenching story of an open adoption gone wrong, Caroline Leavitt reveals the astonishing power of family bonds and maternal love. Sara, sixteen, is in denial about her pregnancy and too far along for an abortion. Her once-devoted boyfriend has disappeared so Sara decides her only option is an open adoption with George and Eva, a couple desperate for a child. After the birth it's clear Sara has a bond with the child that Eva can't duplicate and Eva and George make a drastic decision, with devastating consequences for them all.

REVIEWS

Praise for Girls in Trouble

"Leavitt's writing is so fluid, her characters so well realized, I found myself reading nearly until the sun came up. When I was finished I felt as though I had made a new friend, and had stayed up all night listening to her stories."
- Pam Houston, author of Cowboys are My Weakness and A Little More About Me

"Given the hot topic of this novel--open adoptions gone wrong--you'd expect a finger-pointing, too-PC tone. But Leavitt's surprising take will get your book group really talking."
- Glamour
