GoodReads Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Lenna James goes to church, attends youth group, and hangs out with the “church geeks” at school. At least, she did. Enticed by a chance with the boy she’s had a crush on for years, Lenna abandons her values and her lifelong friends to hang out with the popular crowd. What she gets in return couldn’t be further from her expectations.
Feeling used and alone and facing an unexpected pregnancy, Lenna struggles to regain control of her life, her parents’ trust, and the love of her best friend, Will. But when her pregnancy takes an unexpected turn, taking away what little control she thought she had, she must find the strength to make the most heart-wrenching decision of all. She feels lost no matter what she chooses. Will she finally choose to look up?
I don't recall ever reading a book about teen pregnancy before this one, but it's something that I feel very strongly about so I was looking forward to reading a YA Contemporary on this topic.

The started off with a bang. It took not time at all to get into the storyline and I felt the characters were pretty realistic and easy to follow along with.

I knew something was going to go wrong just by reading the summary, but I didn't expect things to go so badly. Parts of the story were really heart-wrenching.

The Day We Met was a very emotional, realistic story about a brave girl that ended up with a horrible situation on her hands.

Characters:  Lenna and Will.
Rating:  4 Stars.
