This new installment in the Roosevelt High School series focuses on teen pregnancy.

Celia is a beautiful young girl on the brink of her sophomore year in high school. She watches her weekly soap opera Teen Angel and dreams about cute boys. One day, when Celia goes to visit her best friend Cassie, she meets Nicky, and exciting older boy with a tattoo of a snake on his arm. Finally, it seems that all the things that she’s been dreaming of are coming true with this boy who could pass for one of the stars on her favorite show.

When Nicky discards her and Celia discovers she’s pregnant, problems spiral around her. How will she face her parents and finish school? What happens when her fellow students at Roosevelt High find out? With the help of her older sister Juanita, Celia tries to deal with the results of her infatuation with an older boy.
