For readers of "Orange Is the New Black", a riveting memoir about a lifelong secret and a girl finding strength in the most unlikely place.

Halfway through her senior year of high school, she discovers that she is pregnant a fact her parents are determined to keep a secret, forever. Her mother drops her off at what Liz thinks is a Catholic home for unwed mothers but which is, in truth, a locked government-run facility for delinquent pregnant teenage girls.
