Proof Positive (Intersection Series Book 1)
On the eve of her eighteenth birthday, Lizzie finds herself pregnant: she’s literally days away from her exam results and university beckons around the corner. The bright Lizzie has big plans, but can she have the life she wanted, with a baby in tow? What will her family and friends say? And what will the baby’s father choose to do: stay out of it, or stand by her?
An exciting “What if…” journey in the style of “Run Lola Run” and “Sliding Doors”.

My Review: This is an unusual story but one I enjoyed and which got me thinking. We start off with Lizzie finding out she is pregnant and trying to decide what to do next while dealing with the shock of the news itself. What happens next though is what makes this story different. We follow Lizzie through what we think is her choices, but are they? Because as the blurb says, it has elements of Sliding Doors about it and anyone who has seen that film will understand the reference.
To mention anything more specific would be to reveal spoilers and I don’t do that. What I will say is that this book takes you on an emotional journey. I spent time being annoyed for and on behalf of Lizzie, cheering for her, questionning what she was doing and many, many other reactions. This book will make you think, question decisions and the impact of them and most importantly, will hopefully help those of a similar age to Lizzie question their decisions about their futures and the possible directions they could go in. Such an excellent, thought provoking and enjoyable read, highly recommended whatever your age or stage in life.
