Synopsis: A novel by Lisa Burstein
From the Author:
I know this is a place where I am supposed to discuss my feelings about Dear Cassie, but I wanted to share Karen Jensen's, MLS Youth Services Librarian, Betty Warmack Branch Library, Reviewer for VOYA magazine since 2001
"I sometimes read books about teenage pregnancy and wonder where the discussion of abortion is. Cassie has had an abortion. As she lay at camp writing diary entries to herself she sometimes punches herself in the stomach. This is because she has had an abortion and she is wrestling with how she feels about this fact afterwards.
Lisa Burstein makes a bold decision, telling the story of a girl who has made a choice that is so very controversial in our country. And yet, it is a story that needs to be told because our teens sometimes make this choice and those teens deserve to have their stories told just as much as we advocate for diversity in young adult literature. Diversity can mean diversity in choices.
Cassie's reaction to her abortion is interesting and complex. She obviously feels tremendous confusion and sometimes guilt over the choices she has made. And as a woman, I can't help but think: of course she does. She lives in a world that tells her every day that people who choose abortions are murderers. Even if she didn't think this were true, it makes sense on some level that a teen who is still trying to figure out who they are and what they believe would have periods of times where she questioned the very real decisions that she made. Abortion is not a black and white issue in the world we live, so it makes sense that a contingent of our teens wouldn't see it as a black and white issue either."
