DEAR NOBODY by Berlie Doherty, winner of the Carnegie Medal, is the moving story of two teenagers and an unplanned pregnancy.

DEAR NOBODY by Berlie Doherty, winner of the Carnegie Medal, is the moving story of two teenagers and an unplanned pregnancy. It is one of The Originals from Penguin - iconic, outspoken, first. This compelling story is beautifully told from two points of view, brilliantly evoking the feelings of both Helen, in a series of letters to the unborn baby, and of Chris as he reads the letters and relives the events of their relationship while Helen is in labour. I have never read a book that evokes so vividly how it feels to be a teenager in love.

Dear Nobody is a realistic young-adult novel by Berlie Doherty, published by Hamilton in 1991. Set in the northern England city of Sheffield, it features an unplanned teenage pregnancy and tells the story of its effect on the teenagers and their families. Doherty won the annual Carnegie Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book by a British subject.

Dear Nobody is not just about the journey that Helen and Chris make away from their childhood, but about the journey . I knew that in Dear Nobody I was handling a difficult situation. Chris writes the story, and through it explores not only his own emotions but also those of their two families.

Dear Nobody is not just about the journey that Helen and Chris make away from their childhood, but about the journey they make towards knowing their own parents properly. I talked to lots of young people in schools when I wrote the novel. I didn’t want to write about their experiences, because I had the story and characters in my head by then. This was important for me, even though it’s obviously more difficult for a woman writer to write in the first person of a male.

I thought that the novel "Dear Nobody" was a very outstanding book of a pregnant teenager who was very confused. The two main characters of this book are Chris and Helen. Helen and Chris are both seniors, during the school year Helen becomes pregnant with Chris's baby and is left to make a decision on what to do with the unborn baby. She is pressured greatley by her non-understanding mother to have a abortion. Throughout the book Helen writes letters to her unborn baby about her most personal thought. This book to me gives a great perspective of a teenage girl, going through very confusing issues and how she deals with the changes her body is going through. The author does a termendous job of stating realistic facts. The novel is always leaving you wondering what is going to happen next. I never knew if Chris and Helen would stay together or not. I gave "Dear Nobody" four stars because it was well written and a great book to read, but it was drug out in some places.

Book Review: Berlie Doherty „Dear Nobody"
The book deals with the (sometimes tragic) story of two 18-year old teenagers: Helen, who gets pregnant, and her boyfriend Chris, also the father of her unborn child. The unwanted pregnancy brings about all the troubles that both now have to face, for unfortunately they want to study at two different universities. So now their plans for the future seem to be made in vain. Additionally both teenagers have problems with their parents: [...]The book is written in a style typically for today's youth, and if you're a teenager yourself, you can easily identify with the problems described in the book, either because some of the situations mirror your own life and it may help you to get on with it, or just because you want good entertainment. I would recommend it especially to young people, because the book really deals with the current problems of today's youth.

This book was stunningly beautiful. The plot is lovely and the characters are real. This book creats no pretty illusions. It reveals the frightening reality of being young and pregnant. Helen and Chris are young, foolish and in love. They are in no way ready for the results of unprotected sex. When Helen discovers she is pregnant, she is terrified. But soon, she is ready to deal with her pregnancy, and Chris is not. Chris stands by her, but she ends the relationship, feeling its for his own good. But Chris feels he has a right to play a part in his babys life. This story is magnificently told, and truthful. Unlike other stories of pregnant teenagers, this book precents the an honest veiw of Helen and Chris's situation. I would recommened this book to anyone, its so wonderful that everyone deserves to read it.

"Dear Nobody," Helen's letters start. You may ask, "who is Nobody?" or "Why is this Helen girl writing to someone who doesn't exist?" The answer is that Nobody is 18 year old Helen Garton's baby, growing inside her. Nobody is Chris' baby too, and so when Helen breaks their relationship saying, "I just need some time to figure everything out" he is furious. This just adds to Chris' list of problems of passing his exams, finding and talking to his ex-mother, and making his desions about college. Helen also has many probems to deal with, like college, exams, abortion, and regaining her mother's friendship and love. Find out how Helen & Chris figure their complicated lives out by reading "Dear Nobody", a **** out of ***** star book.

I was really overwhelmed by "Dear Nobody".It tells the reader about every day-problems of young adults, for example arguments with parents or friends and love/loneliness.The main characters Helen and Chris are both seniors and deeply in love when Chris gets Helen pregnant unwanted.Chris's narrative and Helen's letters to her unborn baby whom she calls "Nobody" show up how they cope with their new circumstances. Some passages can almost move you to tears because it is written in a realistic way.

I couldn't put it down and it only took me 2 days to read it. I hope that everyone else who reads this will emjoy it as much as I did.
