Sixteen-year-old science-geek Eve gets pregnant on a service trip over her winter break, and pro-life Mom and pro-choice Dad want her to study both sides of the abortion debate to figure out what to do. The unaware father Adam is still serving as a volunteer at the Dominican Republic orphanage where they met. Since there's no WiFi at the orphanage, he looks forward to being able to text and Face Time with Eve once he gets back to Germany in mid-August. By then, she'll be eight months pregnant—or not. Eve's best friend Claire urges a quick abortion, but pro-choice Eve believes she still has to do "the choice part." As the deadline for her decision approaches, Eve discovers a radical solution—if she's willing to be the first person to do it. Throughout the ordeal, Eve and Claire commiserate about the situation, and about obvious solutions to the very existence of unwanted pregnancies—solutions which science and medicine have failed to develop for women. They're pretty sure these remedies wouldn't be merely "futuristic" if men got periods and carried unwanted pregnancies. They dream of a day when women will be united rather than ripped apart by these issues. Eve has an idea as to how she might be able to nudge the ball forward in spite of the certainty she'll face ridicule and the possibility of death-threats. "Some things are more important than a hell-free senior year." This is a novel for pro-life and pro-choice women.
