'THE SECRET LIFE OF AN AMERICAN TEENAGER'

When: 8 p.m. Tuesdays, ABC Family

 

My Thoughts: Amy Jeurgens is 15 and pregnant. Most would feel sorry for her, but she attempts to hide her pregnancy, even from herself. Although the story focuses on her pregnancy, The Secret Life of an American Teenager is all about this cast of remarkable characters: sweet-natured Ben Boykewich , who is Amy's boyfriend, religious cheerleader Grace Bowman, womanizer Ricky Underwood ( who got Amy pregnant) and seductress Adrian Lee.

Although the series is sweet and heart-warming, the message is clear: Wait until you are married to have sex, and if something does happen, tell your parents right away; you can only hide it for so long.

Verdict: This show divulges the intense realities of being pregnant. It is an amazing drama - and drama is a guilty pleasure of many teenagers.

'BREAKING DAWN'

Author: Stephenie Meyers

Released: Aug. 2

My thoughts: This is a great finale to Ms. Meyer's Twilight series.

It keeps you guessing until the final page. When you think you know what's going to happen, a surprise comes along that you would never expect. It had some irrelevant parts that slowed down the plot, but this book is definitely one to check out and get into.

Grade: B
