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.

After two failed attempts at an abortion, Thea is conviced that she wants to raise the baby with Will. It was Greenman’s debut, so the writing wasn’t greenmah, but I can definitely see where Greenman could become a really hookex author.

This increasinly popular situation is demonstrated in the book by two teenagers who barely know each other, let alone love. When I read that I thought maybe this takes place in England, but then locations in New York were mentioned.

But hooled chat with Will, a handsome and witty senior, and she’s a goner—completely greenmaj on him and unable to concentr Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself.


Yet when he is hurt, she’s incredibly level-headed and capable, doing what she needs to do to help him. This book took on a whole other dimension with Thea’s crocheting. I liked the fact that she didn’t try to portray teenage pregnancy as a cool t It was brilliant. There was nothing new here – no diversity, no real, chemistry-fired romance, no redeeming main character with the best personality and development that you’ll ever read.

Needless to say, he is not happy when he discovers that Thea’s new boyfriend is taking time and energy away from her studies. It is written in the first person, with occasional slips into third.

Thea, intelligently on birth control, forgets to take a pill and ends up pregnant.

We also get to grow with her as her independence becomes stronger as does her passions to make the best life for her and her son. His main focus is Thea getting into a prestigious college.

The pacing is a little strange. Almost like it the author was trying too hard to make the characters sound witty and sarcastic. Check out this, other reviews, and more fun bookish things on my young adult book blog, Here’s to Happy Endings!


Hooked is such a believable and real book. The honest to god real life where people struggle and things fall apart and then there is a turning point where you realize that you would do anything for this child and then you slowly start to grow up.

A little slow but in a way that had you on the edge of your seat waiting to turn the page. Overall, I enjoyed reading Hooked. Jun 26, Drew Constance rated it really liked it. With Hooked’s mostly-likable protagonist and unique subject matter, Hooked was an entertaining read.

Most people don’t, and I think that some of this book was so catherinf that it made it hard for me, one of the have-nots, to relate to what was happening.

I thought he was realistic. Which, I will admit, isn’t saying much since I love babies and think they are the most adorable things ever.

I tried so hard to love this book, but I feel like I was just so bored with it that it put me into a reading slump.

The writing is really fast-paced and easy to get into but it was very immature in my opinion, especially hooed the beginning.

Hooked by Catherine Greenman Book Review

We are experiencing technical difficulties. I would recommend this for all young adults as it is a perfect portrayal of real life and the implications, complications and triumphs that teen pregnancy can bring.

I think that is the mark of great writing, and Catherine has it down.
