About the Book:
Psychologist Cary Taylor’s life just isn’t what it used to be. She dreads her job and no longer finds it exciting. Her family barely spends more than a few minutes together in the same room. She and her husband are drifting apart, and their fifteen-year-old daughter has developed an attitude. When Cary discovers her daughter is pregnant by a boy from the wrong side of the tracks—and he is the son of one of her clients—her already out-of-control life suddenly gets more complicated. Cary’s never imagined having a relationship with a client beyond the fifty-minute hour, much less someone so different from her. Cary must come to terms with her own fears if she is going to salvage her already rocky relationship with her daughter—and piece their family back together. Told from the perspectives of both mothers and the young couple, Trailer Baby gives us a refreshingly honest, yet uplifting story of hope and healing, and how the heart can open up to love.

My Review:
This book was so good I read it in a day. I felt bad for all the characters and liked them all except the father, Ben. He was such an ass when all he had to do was so there and be supportive. The family dynamics seemed true to life and seeing as I had my first child at seventeen I could definitely relate. 

I loved the short chapters and the different points of view. I had to keep reading this book to see what the final outcome would be. My heart ached for all involved and I felt so many emotions. I also enjoyed the differences of the two families, one middle class and the other living in a trailer park. I liked seeing how they dealt with the situation in their own ways.

Overall I loved this book so much, maybe because I could relate?  I also loved all the feelings I had while reading it. I thought this was a marvelous debut and look forward to other works by Ms. Sanoden Pearson.

Thank you NetGalley, Kathryn Sanoden Pearson and BHC Press for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
