From the indie author of Wish Proof, Lalanii Rochelle, MFA shares her highly anticipated second book, Pregnorant.
In today's über popular social media age, it's socially accepted to gauge self-esteem by a follower count and how many likes one has. It's even more painfully glorified to pop out a child as a young mother and have epic 'snapback' photos and videos of the cutest, most well-behaved child, all while putting food on the table and becoming Insta-famous. This memoir is not that. It recounts the consequences of a raunchy night under a Little Tikes playset where a 15½-year-old straight-A student gives up her virginity and gets Pregnorant.
This full-length lyric memoir is a funny and painfully shocking look into the life of a teenage mother. It uncovers the truth behind family secrets as they unravel in a structured yet jarring representation of pregnancy. Each chapter is different and accessible in short forms, such as diary entries or poems, and it's presented in various thought patterns, unreliable narrators, flashbacks, and distractions, much like the experience.
