My Darling My Hamburger

Stood by their parents Their best friends Maggie and Dennis are shy and awkward but willing to take the first tentative steps toward a romance. I enjoyed My Darling My Hamburger by Paul Zindel because I could relate to the characters All of the characters are teenagers or very young adults In this book Liz is an average girl who falls for an average boy Sean The two have many problems in common leading to their love for eachother They take their romance too far and Liz becomes pregnant Liz s friend Maggie is there for her with whatever decision she makes Sean and Liz talked about moving away having the baby and getting an apartment At last second Sean hands Liz money for her to get an abortion Liz saves herself and does so While Liz is having troubles with Sean Maggie is having troubles with Sean s friend Dennis The book is told in third person Each character is described in detail which gives you a mental image and creates an idea for their personalities Liz is faced with a major life changing event that she doesn t know how to handle Her attitude is care free yet she knows her surroundings very well Liz s friend Maggie is self conscious Maggie is always worrying what her boyfriend Dennis is thinking of her Dennis is Sean s best friend who thinks of himself as ugly Each character has their own flaw in themselvesMy Darling My Hamburger takes place in a small town The setting is important because the events that take place have an effect of the story Liz has troubles at home communicating with her parents as does Sean This makes it difficult for Liz to get help with her pregnancy Sean can t get advice from his father At school Liz doesn t go to the dances with Maggie and Dennis because she tries to save her money for an abortion Many issues of today with abortions and teens relate to this bookThe main theme of My Darling My Hamburger is sex and the conseuences Liz struggles with deciding on what to do with her pregnancy and making the right decision for everyone involved I would recommend this book to young adults My Darling My Hamburger does not have graphic details about sex or anything of that nature This book could relate to many young adults It gives a different view point about making the right decision I enjoyed reading My Darling My Hamburger

Read My Darling My Hamburger

Of their own Yet before either couple can enjoy true happiness life conspires against them threatening to destroy their friendships completely.. In preparation for the course on Young Adult library users I am taking this summer I started reading Jezebel s Fine Lines column and this book was featured at one point I ve never read Zindel despite a hefty appetite for this kind of junkThis book could not be written today Zindel writes so expertly about the ambivalence that kids feel towards relationships towards themselves and a confusion that is so real I hope YA authors today will be inspired by Zindel and write honest tales that aren t so concerned with what the character is wearing and where they are shopping
