Teen Pregnancy And Rising Above

When life gives you lemons...

you make lemonade. It's an old saying, but it is just as true now as it was when it was first said. If you can look at a situation and find the good in it, you can better yourself and the situation. It is the power of positive thinking.

In the book MAKE LEMONADE by Virginia Euwer Wolff, teen pregnancy, urban decay, lack of education and lack of money are the lemons. The lemonade that is made by the 14 and 17 year old main characters is sweet without being too sweet. There are no quick fixes here. Nobody ends up rich and living in a mansion in the suburbs at the end of this novel, but there is tons of hope to go around.
