Cry, Baby tells the story of Charlie, a fifteen-year-old girl in her last year of high school. Discovering she is pregnant following a one night stand, Charlie is almost certain she is not ready to be a mother. She agonises over the decision of whether to keep the baby, knowing that only she can make the right choice for her. Will she bow to peer pressure and how will she cope when an even bigger decision comes her way? Cry, Baby is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Cry, Baby is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.
