I loved how Celeste turns into a modern day hero, even though she faces many challenges along the way. Nowadays, being a teen mom is portrayed in a negative light because of the reputation that teen moms receive due to hyped up TV shows (dealing with teen moms) and not actual real interaction with moms to see what motherhood is all about. It was nice to see the author not only shows Celeste as a real person, with real issues and the struggles motherhood can bring, but also focuses on Celeste's desire to better herself for her kids. She didn't give up her dreams merely because she had kids at a young age. Even though she had two kids early, she pushed herself and fulfilled her dreams by getting an education. This book is very motivating and goes to show that one should never give up on their dreams.
