Kurzbeschreibung

29. Oktober 2011
$1 for each book sold is to be paid to 'Planned Parenthood'. In 'Six Weeks', Jessica L. Degarmo departs from the style of her very successful Romance novels - 'Hooking Up', 'The Storm Within', 'Decisions' and 'How To Meet A Guy In The Supermarket' - to examine every teenage girl's nightmare: that she is pregnant and not certain she's ready for a child. It is a life and death decision – not her life, but her decision - and despite the opinions of those around her, she is on her own. In a world of gray, one thing is black and white. Six weeks is her deadline to decide. Maybe you have been there, in which case you will understand.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A waste of author's money. 22. Juli 2012
Von Endeavour
Format:Taschenbuch
When are these authors going to realise that not all readers are simple-minded. We are capable of reading first person past perfect, even if this author cannot write in it.

How dare you write in the present tense about something that happenned. This is not a badly written screenplay, is it?

One very short paragraph contained the word "I" six times.

Flowery (without the petals) over-written prose with the usual abundance of non-sensical adjectives and sloppy dialogue.

I didn't buy the book, I took a peek inside, 10 of any currency is too much for a print-on-demand book.
If only this author had contacted a helpful (not the scam ones) author support site then she wouldn't be stuck with a pile of books, and the 2,000 dollars she paid for the edit could have been spent wisely.

Yes, a fool, or a desperate author and her money are soon parted.

This comment is meant as a warning to others who think POD is better than nothing.

The author may think she is on a winner, she has been robbed and the people who conned her should be poisoned with their own ink.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't waste your time! 22. Mai 2012
Von Jennifer K. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Aside from being overly repetative, and pounding the facts over and over, this book was a total waste of time. Why? (Spoiler) IT DOESN"T END. You go thru all of this pain and suffering with the main character, and then you don't get to know what happens. You get to GUESS what happens. I hate stories like this, and for sure I will not read anythng else by this author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bring the Tissues 21. August 2011
Von LovesToRead - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was sent this book to read by the author. Being a complete departure from her usual style, I was keen to see how she handled it and the subject matter. I was not disappointed. The story was compelling. I felt sympathy for Immy, her life and the choices she was forced to make. At times I wanted to hug her then, in the next breath I felt annoyed that she was prepared to put up with the circumstances. I was glad that she stood up for herself at the end, though the decision was undoubtedly tough. Degarmo has handled the interwoven concepts in the story with sensitivity and maturity, though I was sad that the ending didnt have more of a decisive end. But that's just me... I like closure.
Well worth the read!!! Just bring the tissues.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful, emotional, enriching, rollercoaster ride. 20. August 2011
Von Soooz Burke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Some books grab you by the emotions and drag you screaming on the journey they make.

Some books hit you in a raw spot, like biting down on an exposed nerve to feel the relief when you stop.

Some books leave an aftertaste , a tingling something on the tongue, that leaves you hungry for more.

Six Weeks does all of the above.

Author, Jessica Degarmo doesn't protect the reader from the emotion ...in fact she opens up a vein and dares you to allow it to bleed. The journey that Immy is on, is one that millions of woman have undertaken, yet Immy is unique..her thoughts feelings and experiences touch the commonalty within us all and manage to stand separate. That is the measure of a fine writer. Ms Degarmo is such a writer, she invites you to share her character's painful journey, the invitation is subtle, you can choose to leave this rollercoaster at any time, yet why would you? For this ride is as exhilarating as it is painful.

Imogene is on the brink of womanhood, that lonely place where the last vestige of childhood is swept away. She had no real innocence remaining, so she thought. Having to deal with the pathetic, drunken, excuse for a mother that she has, having to raise her little sister and ensure that the youngster has adequate food , shelter and above all else love...that would seem to be more than most teenagers have any right to have foisted upon them.

Then in a moment of frailty, when her defences are down and her needs are high, she makes the biggest mistake of her life. The resulting pregnancy will alter her life, and her sisters life forever.

Ms Degarmo has a masterful touch. She doesn't bog the reader down with mawkish sentimentality. She doesn't take the easy road, and let you off the hook emotionally either.

What she does, and extremely well..is make you care. You care about Immy, you care about her little sister, you ache for the father of the baby as he undergoes his own hell, you want these fictitious people to survive, you want the solutions to give them some sort of future, and some sort of closure.

If you enjoy a fast paced read, if the characters you read about need to be real to you, if you want to care..then read Six Weeks.

I for one, would be delighted if a sequel to this could be written. I would love to know what happens in Immy's life after the Six Weeks is over. That is the measure of a wonderful reading experience...I want more!

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's about the journey, not the destination. 19. Juli 2012
Von R. C. Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
In response to the one-star reviews complaining about the ending, I will start with a (supposed) spoiler:

You don't find out what the teenage protagonist's decision is regarding her pregnancy. And yes, that aspect bothered me a bit at first, when I reached the end and didn't find out what she'd chosen. You do tend to expect a book about a monumental decision to end with the closure of what the decision was, so I can understand some readers feeling disappointed. The more I thought about the book after reading it, though, the more I realized -- this book isn't about what her final decision is, and really, it doesn't matter what it was. What matters is the process the character goes through to learn about herself and her situation in order to be able to make the decision. That's what the book is about, to me -- how we sift through everyone else's opinions and expectations and advice and needs and biases, to find out what's right for us, when making any kind of big decision about our lives. (Frankly, I give the author credit for cleverly sidestepping the potential controversy of having the character choose one path or another, and then everyone assuming the author is preaching at them one way or another, and getting one-star reviews based on that.)

Overall, not necessarily the greatest novel ever written about teen pregnancy, but the character shows developing maturity, the text is pretty clean as far as editing goes, and I found it a thought-provoking read.
