Description

In Girls Like Us , Randi Pink masterfully weaves four lives into a larger story-as timely as ever-about a woman's right to choose her future.

Four teenage girls. Four different stories. What they all have in common is that they're dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

It's the summer of 1972, before Roe v. Wade . In rural Georgia, Izella is wise beyond her years, but burdened with the responsibility of her older sister, Ola, who has found out she's pregnant. Their young neighbor, Missippi, is also pregnant, but doesn't fully understand the extent of her predicament. When her father sends her to Chicago to give birth, she meets the final narrator, Susan, who is white and the daughter of an anti-choice senator.
