The writing itself is good, but I just can't stand any of the characters. The baby daddy won't consent to adoption, but can't even for one second take a step back from his unreasonable demands and temper and has the nerve to make play guilt games. The new boyfriend is a manipulative asshole whose only purpose in life seems to be shit-stirring. The baby momma, instead of throwing both assholes out of her life and go to court to regulate the fathers visiting rights, just flounces indecisivly around and lets everything happen to her. Also, just because she decided against adoption doesn't mean that her parents also signed up on stopping their lives and playing babysitter around the clock. Her friends at school didn't even realise that she stopped eating lunch and seem to not even notice that she doesn't around with them anymore, that is how much they care about her. The girls parents seem to think that disapproval and limiting contact with boys will somehow do their daughter good? (What, like she is going to forget the biggest mistake she made in having unprotected sex? Or like having zero experience with relationships firsthand somehow helped her learn to deal with a pressuring boyfriend and to say no? Also, if her getting pregnant was such a big deal, why didn't they help her get an abortion or a pill for afterwards? That doesn't exactly speak of trusting family relations.) They also seem to have developed plot predicting powers, since they dislike the new bf when they haven't seen his shitstirring in action, but already had more than enough experience with the ex-bfs shit. I also can't help but wonder how long the baby daddy would insist on denying adoption, if the baby would have been installed in his house with his ex barging for a visit in whenever she had time, instead of the other way around. Because he honestly shouldn't be allowed to make decisions that have long-reaching consequences for at least two other people, esp. if he is going to constantly be a whiny selfish bitch and raising her stress levels any time he opens his mouth and so distressing the kid.
Full disclosure: I managed to get only to page 120 and not further, because I hated everyone in the story so much. Maybe the story picks up after that, but somehow I doubt it since the characterisation had already been set.
