Leap of Faith was the best book I have ever read! In this book I felt like from the start it had my attention. I kept wanting to turn the page and I think its because I felt like I could relate to somethings. If you've had a hard, not so perfect life growing up and kinda around some bad influences then you'll definitely understand what the main character is going through, and you'd understand why she wants to give that baby a better life than she had. Not only is this book full of realistic events, it also had romance in it. I would definitely recommend this book to teenage girls. It has the perfect love story about this new (16 year old) mom that has ventured out on her own and gets taken in and loved by the perfect guy of her dreams, which she wasn't expecting at all.
