Thea Galehouse, adrift and under-motivated, is a junior at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School when she meets senior Will Weston and makes. Hooked by Catherine Greenman is not your typical pregnancy novel. There is no ‘ you will get pregnant and you will die.’ Hooked opens pretty. I am not a huge fan of teenage pregnancy so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love Hooked, but Catherine Greenman does not try to.

HOOKED by Catherine Greenman | Kirkus Reviews

The romance was too quick. Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself. This book was a roller coaster ride. When a freak accident with the baby pushes Will farther away from Thea and he decides he can’t do it anymore Thea is on her own to care for their son with one person to turn to, her stiff, uptight father. I couldn’t really see the appeal of him at all.

It took me a while to get used to it but after a few chapters I didn’t even notice anymore. Didn’t fall head-over-heels for any of them, but I didn’t hate any of them. Almost like it the author was trying too hard to make the characters sound witty and sarcastic.

When they decide to keep the baby, their concerned parents chip in what they can to keep Will in school and give both teenagers a comfortable place to raise their child. Personally, I think it looks tacky and the title looks like a tattoo. Thea may not be the most fleshed-out character, but even as a teenager she’s a great mother.

She worries that she loves will more than he loves her, thus he has the power in the relationship.

After two failed attempts at an abortion, Thea is conviced that she wants to raise the baby with Will. You find yourself getting attached to the characters, and it’s hard to say goodbye by the end. What keeps this strong debut on course is freenman accumulation of myriad, closely observed details, the building blocks of fiction that delineate character and bring an imagined world, narrow or not, to life. There are weird time jumps, and I just cannot understand the reasoning behind why some scenes are so detailed while others aren’t.


Then Thea discovers that she is pregnant. I don’t know, I just didn’t feel anything for either of them, so I guess their relationship catberine something I cared much about.

I think the relationship between Jaimie and Will allows teenagers to see that they may not always know the true meaning of love at the age of 14 or This book moves very slow and has wayyyyy too many details but it is a good book with an okay ending.

Her parents are wonderful people who did everything they could to protect their daughter and their grandchild. Thea was kind of easy. If you enjoyed this post, please Subscribe to Book Briefs in a reader.


She works for a non-profit. This book touches a lot on the subject of love, and how it is not always going to come out to be as easy or predictable as we all sometimes hope. Needless to say, he is not happy when he discovers that Thea’s new boyfriend is taking time and energy away from her studies. Thea and Will are the definition of insta-love; they meet, and bam – gooked in love.

Maybe I just wasn’t ambitious enough, or maybe I just didn’t come greenmzn the right background to have this kind of advantage.

Hooked by Catherine Greenman

My favorite character in the book was her father. Maybe it’s that hreenman, when I’m not liking a book, I’m enjoying not liking that book. Her and Will’s parents help them financially so that Will can continue to go to school and later, when a fight with Will When Thea Galehouse meets Will Weston, she falls headlong into love with the quirky, handsome, and smart senior.

I liked the fact that she didn’t try to portray teenage pregnancy as a cool thing instead she’s found a way to overcome the difficulty of raising a baby. Then Thea finds out she is pregnant and their relationship will be tested in ways they never could have predicted.
