The Pregnancy Project

ebook

When Gaby faked a pregnancy to challenge stereotypes, she also changed her life. A compelling memoir from an inspirational teenage activist.

Growing up, Gaby Rodriguez was often told she would end up a teen mom. After all, her mother and her older sisters had gotten pregnant as teenagers; from an outsiders perspective, it was practically a family tradition. Gaby had ambitions that didnt include teen motherhood. But she wondered: how would she be treated if she lived down to others expectations? Would everyone ignore the years she put into being a good student and see her as just another pregnant teen statistic with no future? These questions sparked Gabys high school senior project: faking her own pregnancy to see how her family, friends, and community would react. What she learned changed her life foreverand made international headlines in the process.

In The Pregnancy Project, Gaby details how she was able to fake her own pregnancyhiding the truth from even her siblings and boyfriends parentsand reveals all that she learned from the experience. But more than that, Gabys story is about fighting stereotypes, and how one girl found the strength to come out from the shadow of low expectations to forge a bright future for herself.
