  2. I notice that Sam care's about what people think of him, there's nothing wrong with that, however if your going to be ashame that your a teen parent then you should of thought about it before you started having sex. With Claire it's the opposite, she doesn't care, she lets people think what they want to think because I guess she's happy with Emily. At the mall, Sam was being stubborn and giving Claire an attitude, he shouldn't act like that especially to Claire since he likes her, she asked him several times if he was okay, I think he should of told her how he feels so they can talk with each other instead of just keeping his thoughts to himself. I don't think Claire would want to be with Sam if he continues to act stubborn and immature.

  3. Okay… In this chapter, I didn’t think it was all that interesting. I think that both characters, Claire and Sam miss the old times. When I say old times, I mean like, the way they could always go and hang out with their friends all the time. Like when they wouldn’t have to worry about any responsibility like having a kid. I think that they really do miss going to places where they don’t have to bring a baby along with them. The way it is said in the book, I think that Sam and Claire’s friends are really nice. Unlike other people, they don’t seem to be ashamed to hang out and talk to Sam and Claire.

  5. I think Claire has some high blood issues, but I also like her courage for saying again their baby. I would say to myself if I saw them, wasn’t one enough, did they learn or what? Anyways it’s not like I really would care and they would really listen at all. It’s good that Sam’s friends came over and they talked for a while, it’s always good to be in a social area. Being alone isn’t a very healthy and then again, they need to take care of their kids. I think that Sam needs to loosen up a little and Claire sometimes needs to tell the truth.

  6. Sam did not feel okay in this chapter. I felt that he did not want to get involved with the misunderstanding about being seen Emily and Claire are his family, to the people. He was not pleased by Claire's reacition when she kept telling people that they are family and Sam is the father. If I were Sam, I would feel same as Sam felt because he thinks that they are just friends and he wants to keep this feelings about her, not in a seroius way.

    And when they met Jenny and Andy, I felt sorry for Sam because their unpredictable meeting made Sam's feeling more awkward and weird.
    I do not mean that he felt shameful about people's misunderstanding, but I woundered all these happenings with Claire,Emily,Sam,and Max are going all right..

  9. In Chapter 15, Sam, Max, Claire, and Emily went to the mall. I think Claire really likes to spend time with Sam outside, the Park, Halloween, and shopping…They are having a great time together with their babies. And I realize that Sam is very sensitive about what people think about him. On the other hand Claire doesn’t care about people talking or think of her and Emily. And Sam should be like Emily, he is the father of a baby and he should have a confident about being a father. I think he is still shy about Max and Claire.

  10. Chapter 15
    When I finish reading this chapter, I just think, yes, If I were Sam, if I like Claire and if I don’t misses with her, I will tell her, and whatever cannot be regarded as others’ idea and perspective, but, if I don’t want to with her together, I will tell her, too. Because, you know, that is not good for them, yes, it is about sex, because whoever knows, something will happen to after a second, even let alone, they are so close.

  11. Chapter 14 to Dad said “you have to be careful, Sam” And he said “I know that…” question. He is really think about the baby and relations Claire. Sam is some times think about this but not many think. So, his not really think about that. I wont to say to Sam like..”Think about baby…Sam..and ..you have to think…please Sam.”

  12. Disappointed once again with Sam. It is just so aggravating how he intends to hide that he is a parent. Max should not be blamed at all for any reason, he had options! But I do in fact, get that he doesn’t want to make it look like him , Max, Claire and Emily are just one family with Sam and Claire being the parents of the young children.It really sucks to be left out instead enjoying your teenage life, especially when you’re a teen parent. You really don’t have a choice. They’re reminiscing about the good old days, hanging out with friends, going out, having fun. ETC. But I think its just their fault. Condoms are invented, Birth Control Pills… ETC… OR ACTUALLY ABSTENANCE!

  13. I hate3 Sam!!hehe.. anyways I dont see that sam is that proud of being a father. Why make a responsibility then yopu dont like people talking abpout it. Hes not being strong enough that he is a father already. Hes still ashame abou it. Since also im in a young age having a baby, Imean Im even youger than Sam but im ready for my responsibility because I should accept the fact that we were not being careful. Im even happy that im having a baby because i was blessed. Im young and people might talk about me but I dont care what people saty because I know I will be happy with my babyy..

  14. I think that both Sam and Claire really miss the old times. When they use to go out and hangout with their friends. Like when they didn’t have to worry about anything. And also I think that they really miss going to places without bringing there kids. And I also think that Sam really cares about what people thinks of him. If he is going to think like that he should have think before he had sex.

  15. Chapter 15:
    I think that Claire is too stressed by her mother that she just can’t get anything right. I think that Sam got a shame when the lady came over to help Claire and when the lady said to “you take good care of her, dad”. I think that Claire is the kind of person who doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her. I think that Andy was shocked when he saw that Claire has a baby too. I think that Sam shouldn’t be a shame that he has a baby, he should be proud that he is blessed with Max.

  16. Sam, Max, Claire, Emily all went to the mall in the morning. They shopped for baby clothes and they ran into Sam’s best friend and his girlfriend. Just like anyone that hasn’t seen someone for a long time, Sam was glad he ran into Andy that day. Jenny and Claire immediately became friends. They were all talking as they head to Starbuck’s. I think it was great how they all could talk, as if they were never gone, as if Sam and Claire never had babies. I think that a friend like Andy is hard to find, a friend that you could keep no matter what happens in life.

  17. It think this chapter is pretty much a busy chapter for Sam and max I think that it was cool for Claire to be there for Sam and max to help them with things. I think that Sam needs a break from all the hard work that he endures for like the past how many weeks he has been babysitting max I think that it is really hard to be a parent if you wife or your husband is not a round to help you in like bad days or your bad week I think that he deserves a big break.
