From the Author
An incredibly timely novel, What They Don't Know explores the abortion debate in an emotional story of friendship between two seemingly opposite teen girls.

"A flawless deconstruction of the hypocrisy turning deeply personal matters into deeply political ones, this book follows two once-upon-a-time friends, both with life-altering - and perhaps life-ending - secrets. Should be required reading for anyone who's ever said 'I would never.'" - Patty Blount
