It's Not About Him by Michelle Sutton

Here is the kind of novel every teen needs to read. It isn't about what happened at the party, it's the 9 months after. It's about what's best for everyone. It's about raw feelings and about someone who doesn't have much self esteem so can't recognize true love when she sees it.

That was probably the most aggravating thing... the chick kept whining and thinking she's got to do all this alone. Which, in actuality, is what most of all women think. We've become so feminist that we abhor appearing weak or needy or reaching out for those close to us.

It's a good effort and one that I would recommend to every young girl. We should absolutely explore all possibilities. We should never assume we are always safe because we are not. Consequences will happen. Einstein taught us that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Stands to reason that we must suffer the consequences of our actions. This is what Sutton explores in this novel, and she's done a really good job.

Michelle Sutton, otherwise known as the Edgy Inspirational Author, is Editor-in-chief of Christian Fiction Online Magazine, a member of ACFW, a social worker by trade, and a prolific reader/book reviewer/blogger the rest of the time.

She lives in Arizona with her husband of nineteen years and her two teenaged sons. Michelle is also the author of It's Not about Me (2008) and It's Not About Him (Sheaf House 2009). She has nine other titles releasing over the next three years.


Susie passed out while drinking at Jeff’s party and later discovered she’s pregnant. She has no idea who the father is and considers having an abortion, but instead decides to place her baby for adoption. Following through ends up being more wrenching than she imagined, but she’s determined to do the right thing for her baby.

Jeff feels guilty that Susie was taken advantage of at his party and offers to marry her so she won’t have to give up her baby, like his birth mother did with him. But Susie refuses, insisting he should he marry someone he loves. Can he convince her that his love is genuine before it’s too late? Can she make him understand that it’s not about him—it’s about what’s best for her child?
