Her life is messed up big because lo and behold she finds out she is pregnant with Josh's child. She then has to face the dilemma of giving her baby to Josh's parents or keep the baby herself and have to sign up for welfare. When she least expects it she goes into labor months earlier than she was due she had a condition called pre-eclampsia a condition only found in pregnant women which causes your blood pressure to rise dangerously high.

How to Eat Fried Worms
Review
My sister, mother and I have been reading books together this summer and then watching the movie afterward. This book was very funny! I enjoyed all the different challenges that Billy encountered while trying to eat 15 worms in 15 days. Some chapters made me cringe as I imagined having to eat the worm of the day but it was a fun read. The movie was great too though very different from the book!  "Check it Out"
