Saipan Southern High School book club members and other island teens discuss their books of interest by writing their thoughts about the book choice of the month.
In this chapter, I was really interested in reading it. I think that Sam was really nervous and anxious at the same time to see his baby boy for the first time. When I first started reading this chapter, I actually thought that Sam got another girl pregnant and was having a second child. But I was wrong because Max’s name wasn’t really Max in the first place, it was a different name. I just wonder why they changed Max’s name to Max. I also think that Sam’s ex-girlfriend’s (Brittany) mom doesn’t really like Sam just by the way she acts around him.
I think the mom of Brittany is a cruel, brutal, malicious, heartless, vicious monster! It’s dumb how she acts towards the father of Max, or in this case Julian. I don’t think she should be even showing that attitude towards Sam; it’s just inconsiderate and ignorant. A baby isn’t about the parents just giving up bills and sending mix emotions toward each other, but the taking care of the baby part is parenting. I think she doesn’t know how much Julian/Max will mean to Sam, and to see her just say “We’ll send your father the bill” is just unpleasant, like that was all she cared about.
well on this chapter i didnt notice who the chapter talking about but i think it will base on britany giving brith to her son MAX well thats what im thinking will happen in this chapter

I like this chapter because Sam see’s Max for the first time! It’s very touching when you get to hold your child for the first time. So the nurse teaches Sam how to hold Max and he does a great job but I think Sam almost drops Max. I don’t like the name Julian Patrick it sounds so… I don’t weird and lame, I guess. Thank God that Sam took Julian and changed his name to Max. Mrs. Ames is so mean to Sam, like instead of congratulating him and talking to him she just goes straight to the point and tells Sam his share of the bill is coming up. Mrs. Ames sounds like a money face and she’s awfully rude. Max shouldn't be an issue he's more like a blessing but to Mrs. Ames he's just a bill.
This chapter was about when Sam went to the hospital to see Brittany and Max. In this part, I felt that Sam became someone who committed a sin,when he faced Brittany's mom.I thought that Sam's arrival was not really welcomed by her mom because most of the time she talked about how Britanny and Sam will take care of the child. It seemed stressful because their teenage love expanded more complicated and broader case. They had to discuss every sort of things for the household.
In chapter 13, the story went back to the past again; it was a story when Sam gets to see his baby, Julian. But I don’t think both of them seem they aren’t happy to see their baby, maybe they were not ready for having a baby. And I couldn’t believe what Sam said about Max, he said Max looks like a mutant. No matter how the baby looks, that’s the reality Sam have to accept those realities and carry on. And Brittany’s mom seems like he only cares about the bills, like she doesn’t want to spend money on her daughter’s baby.
Chapter 13 Of course, is anyone, whoever is the father, I think this I s a happy affair, but except Sam, because you know, a17 years old boy, he loses not only a teenagers freedom, it is more a great deal to still have pay share of the bill, so, when Sam seeing his son, I can felt his feel is so complicated, and he still haven’t told his father, him to a grandparent, because he knows, his dad was so hard, and he doesn’t wants to give any burden for him again. On Brittany, I have disliked her.
This chapter begging to hospital. Sam go to the hospital. Because birth his baby ad her baby. This part is I’m think many time. How was feeling..to baby. So, Sam’s feeling is pain or crime? I never take this book. Because I’m a student and I’m not have baby. Past long time…I will have many baby…..no I wont and I got a Sam of feeling
This chapter really brought my attention along with it.But I think Brittany’s[Sam’s X] mom dislikes Sam. I mean it is hard to accept having your high school daughter getting pregnant, and to top it off her boyfriend is still in high school too. Maybe he will earn her respect after proving her thoughts wrong. So anyways, I love the feeling of having a new member into the family. Sam must've been happy, scared, shocked, confused etc. It must've been the greatest feeling Sam could ever feel in his life. The Love for your child, is the greatest love for them ;)! Anyways I think the name Max for the baby really matched, I couldn’t think of anything better after seeing the picture of Max in the front.
In this chapter was kinda interesting for me because Sam got to see and meet his baby for the first time.Its just 5that its kinda sad that brittany's mother dislikes Sam,In some situations like this If your childs grandparents dont really like you, they would try to make you stay away from the baby.Well for some reason theres a reason why brittany mother shold kind of dislike sam because he got her pregnant. But theres not just sam to blame but her daughter too.At least Sam will still be There for max because his the daddy even though brittany and sam are nopt together anymore.
Chapter 13In this chapter I think that Brittany is very cruel to Sam. Because it is very dumb and mean the way she acts to Sam Max Father. I think that she doesn’t even want to be part of Max life. I think that she is really mean to give up Max.I think that one day she'll think of it and feel bad about it because who would give up there baby.
Chapter 13:This chapter was kind of interesting. I think that Sam was so nervous and confused. I kind of have this feeling that Brittany’s mom didn’t like Sam at all, but that was not necessary because the mistake was already made and there is nothing she could do to fix it. I know that Sam is a shame to face Brittany’s mom. I think that Brittany’s mom is so mean, she is like the witch. I think that Sam felt so proud when he saw his baby and when he got to hold him. I know at this point Sam doesn’t even care about what people think.
To me, pregnancy is the scariest thing, especially when you haven’t even finish high school yet. Pregnancy could also be a great thing if you’re ready to raise I child of your own. If you can’t take care of yourself then you shouldn’t even be thinking about sex. I wonder if they are really going to keep the baby. They shouldn’t give the baby up for adoption because the baby should be raised by its real parents. Julian Patrick Ames was what Brittany had named her baby son.
I think this me a happy affair, but except Sam, because you know a17 years old boy, he loses not only a teenagers freedom. I mean it is hard to accept having your high school daughter getting pregnant, and to top it off her boyfriend is still in high school too. Well for some reason there’s a reason why Brittany mother should kind of dislike Sam because he got her pregnant.
