No More Sad Goodbyes (Paperback)
Autumn Grant is a volleyball star at Hamilton High and has her choice of both athletic and academic college scholarships. She is lovingly raised by her father and grandmother, who have taught Autumn to make sound decisions about her future. When Autumn discovers she is pregnant, however, she is determined to keep her perfect life and erase the mistake of one night by scheduling an abortion. Only five days before her surgery, the news that her grandmother and father have tragically died changes Autumn's life forever, and she is faced with a difficult decision--whether to have the baby and raise it as her own or to give the child to her volleyball coach. Her choice becomes even more difficult when she discovers that the baby and her grandmother share an extraordinary physical trait. Touching on the adolescent themes of teenage sex, adoption, and abortion--this topical novel is poignant and inspiring.
