I swear he came home with three-quarters of the contents of the baby store he’d been to. After ten minutes of unpacking the car, the sitting room was an obstacle course. cent to the door, a ready-to-assemble cot packed in a box took pride of place; there were enough disposable nappies to soak up all the water in the English Channel, a baby carrier thing that let you carry a baby against your chest arms-free, a bottle of baby bath, baby moisturizer, baby cream for nappy.

Boys Don’t Cry isn’t just a book about a teenage boy who discovers that his ex-girlfriend had his baby and didn’t tell him until she turns up unannounced on his doorstep. It’s also a book about family relationships, and has one of the most interesting dynamics I’ve read in YA fiction for a long time.

Dante is the quintessential good boy – he works hard at school, does what is expected of him, has a small group of close friends and a girlfriend. He’s got big dreams and ambitions. Until his former girlfriend turns up and leaves him with his new daughter. What makes the family dynamic so different is not just that Dante is the child of a single parent – he’s the child of a single father and his younger brother is openly gay – not that his father and Dante are particularly accepting of it.

Boys Don’t Cry is a coming-of-age story, and it was great to see Dante moving through a whole bunch of different stages when coming to terms with the huge and unexpected changes that baby Emma brings to his life. Perhaps the only thing that didn’t feel completely realistic is that once Dante comes to terms with the idea that he’s a single teenage father, he doesn’t push things any further. Rather, he kind of just accepts his future, without any real plans on how he could break out from a stereotype, and given his potential I found that a little difficult to understand. However, having said that, he is determined to do the right thing, and the best job that he can. It just left me feeling a little conflicted.

What I liked most about Boys Don’t Cry were the extra elements that I wasn’t really expecting – Dante’s relationship with his brother and father were particularly close and I loved that connection.

The ending felt right – Dante really grows as a character, gets deeper into relationship with brother and father and comes to terms with the fact that his life is forever changed – even seeing the positives in a situation that could have been very negative and really invests time and energy in his daughter – recognising the importance of family. Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a more unique YA realistic fiction book.

BOYS DON'T CRY by Malorie Blackman is an emotionally charged story about love and family and the different shapes they sometimes take. This book is one you won't want to miss.

Dante is anxiously awaiting his A Level exam results. He is proud of himself for taking the exams a year early, and he's eager to know if his scores will have him headed to university in the near future. But when a knock at the door brings his old girlfriend and not the postman, Dante is in for the surprise of his life.

Melanie has been gone for over a year. The last time they spent any time together was at a friend's party. That night they were both drunk and ended up in an upstairs bedroom, where they had a less-than-memorable sexual encounter. Now, Melanie was sitting in his living room holding a baby on her lap. Dante is at first confused and then shocked when Melanie tells him the baby is his daughter, Emma.

If finding out he has a daughter is not enough, Melanie asks Dante to watch the baby for a bit while she goes out to run an errand. Before he has a chance to object, she is gone. And not long after, Melanie calls from her mobile phone and tells Dante she won't be coming back.

Dante's father is furious when he hears about his son's irresponsible sexual behavior, but to Dante's amazement, he immediately leaps into action, making a plan and getting the supplies they need to care for a baby. Dante is equally shocked when his younger brother, Adam, falls head-over-heels in love with little Emma. All Dante can think about is how to get Melanie to come back and get him out of this impossible situation.

Even though his A Level exam scores are perfect, Dante knows his plans for university and the future have become a distant dream. He quickly learns being a father might be the hardest job on earth. The more time he spends with Emma, the more his love begins to blossom. With the help of his dad, his brother, and his aunt, Dante begins to take his responsibility seriously.

Maybe it is learning to love his daughter or maybe it's spending more time at home, but Dante also begins to discover his usually cheerful younger brother has some problems of his own. He finds himself filling not only the role of new father, but also that of protective older brother. Through it all he learns the true meaning of love and all the joy and pain it can bring.

Author Malorie Blackman takes the usual teen parenthood story and turns it upside-down. Readers will be quickly drawn into Dante's experiences and will feel every moment of fear, regret, and exhilaration as he deals with all life has thrown his way. There are fabulous moments of joy, flashes of anger, and terrible tragedies as this odd family struggles to hold it all together.
