Sixteen year old Bobby (first introduced in "Heaven") and his girlfriend Nia are classic urban teenagers until they learn they are going to have a baby. Told they should put the baby up for adoption as the only way to lead a normal life again, Bobby struggles to figure out what "the right thing" is and then how to do it. Johnson delves into the male side of teen pregnancy with keen insight and powerful language. Winner of the Coretta Scott King Award in 2004.
