Thea Galehouse, adrift and under-motivated, is a junior at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School when she meets senior Will Weston and makes. Hooked by Catherine Greenman is not your typical pregnancy novel. There is no ‘ you will get pregnant and you will die.’ Hooked opens pretty. I am not a huge fan of teenage pregnancy so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love Hooked, but Catherine Greenman does not try to.

I am still undecided on my final verdict as far as he goes. I liked the fact that she didn’t try to portray teenage pregnancy as a cool thing instead she’s found a way to overcome the difficulty of raising a baby.

Then she meets Will Weston. The real selling point for Hooked greenan the writing. Thea, while sometimes naive and even a little annoying at times, was a realistic and likable main character.

It took me a while to get used to it but after a few chapters I didn’t even notice anymore. I just wish it was more prominent. And yeah, like every mother out there, there were accidents with her son and yet, she learned from them. She has little communication with her recovering al “I took the crochet hook and stabbed it into the ball.

It took her longer, but she did it so she can have a future for her son. I am giving this: Not everything is wrapped up, but hey that is real life.


And it was written by someone who is obviously familiar with the area the characters live in, which I tend to appreciate. This book by far has the most realistic take on how a baby can affect a relationship.

When Thea Galehouse meets Will Weston, she falls headlong into love with the quirky, handsome, and smart senior. But still definitely good.

Want to Read saving…. Things can’t always be neatly wrapped up at the end of the day. Nope, none of that here. Carmen was so nice to Thea, helping her and all, and I really liked her.

I found myself a lot of the time thinking “Oh my god, what’s going to happen now?! Honestly this book was amazing.

Will was kind of creepy, and I didn’t completely like him, even in the beginning. Overall, I felt the writing was poor and the characters not real enough to care about.

I guess I could say that the only thing I didn’t like about this book was the fact that sometimes the plot got a little confusing, and you didnt really understand what was going on, or at times, I believed I missed something, because sometimes it seemed as if the characters weren’t explaining their feelings well enough and I thought they meant something else, until later on in the paragraphs, where they elaborated more on what they were talking about before.


But one chat with Will, a handsome datherine witty senior, and she’s a goner—completely hooked on him and unable to concentrate on anything else. It was enjoyable, and definitely dramatic at times, but it wasn’t the best hoked I’ve ever read.

New York must be another planet where everyone has that kind of money. It didn’t make an impact on me, but it was fun and entertaining while it lasted. Jan 31, Pamela rated greenmah liked it.

And from the beginning on, their relationship d This books really makes me wish I lived somewhere where, instead of having to buy books online, I could go to a bookstore or library and take a look at the book, read the first page or so, before buying or borrowing it. I didn’t dis like it, either, so there’s that. Though I liked this book and what it tried to convey, I was left feeling like there is nothing that will make me remember it a year from now.
