Dear Nobody takes teenagers on an honest, thought provoking journey through teenage pregnancy. It delves further than the obvious and explores the effect that other family members responses to the situation changes the way I thought about the issue.
It still remained a very good story and never reduced to a judgemental point of view. I borrowed this book from the local British Council library. This book is recommended to the local upper secondary school students. Grade 9 and 10 The book is in very simple easy-flowing language.
However, the idea is complicated. The author has a magic way to make the story interesting.
The author is also able to put on readers' thinking caps. The story starts with a conflict and ends in an open-ended way: The book is a good guide to teenagers who are in love. It alert them how much trouble pre-marrital sex can bring. It also serves as a good guide to show teenagers who are pregnant at such early ages what to do. It is also a good guide book for parents who are living with teenagers.
The book helps parents understand what the teenagers of the new century are thinking so that they can get closer to their sons or daughters. Anyway, this is a book that is very easy to read. It is just about pages, so it won't take a lot of time.
Helen and her boyfriend Chris have sex for the first time, but one month later Helen has an unsure feeling in her. After having done a pregnancy test and having gone to visit a doctor it becomes reality: It deals with realistic problems of teenies and because of that it is very interesting to read and at some parts surprising. I would recommend it to every young woman and man who like reading stories from real life.

Chris is bewildered, and feels bereft. To get away from all the memories in Sheffield, he goes to France with Tom. He meets a girl called Bryn, but cannot forget Helen. In September, Helen learns her mother's greatest secret — that she is illegitimate, a great disgrace when she was growing up — and finally begins to understand her. When her contractions start, she has a sudden impulse to send her "Dear Nobody" letters to Chris.
Chris finishes reading the letters, realizes the baby is coming and rushes to the hospital, where he meets his newborn daughter, Amy. Doherty describes the book as being essentially about love: The emotional intensity of the novel is well attested: John Murray's essay on the novel's narrative technique focuses on the novel as a literary artefact and discuses how its structure affects the reader.
The playscript has been published by Collins in the Plays Plus series  and it has been performed in schools and theatres around the world.
Doherty is enthusiastic about the productions: I am just endlessly fascinated by the different ways of representing them, and always impressed by the actors' ability to bring the characters to life. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
