A BUMP ALONG THE WAY

by Shelly Love

synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Allegra is constantly embarrassed by her mother’s immaturity, her dead-end job at the bakery and her lifestyle, encouraged by fast-talking best friend Aisling (Mary Moulds). But Pamela’s fed up too, having put her life on hold to raise her disapproving daughter. When Pamela becomes unexpectedly pregnant, the relationship between mother and daughter is tested as the two navigate the upheavals of pregnancy and teenage hormones, driving Pamela and Allegra to a new understanding and appreciation of each other along the way.
