Jumping off Swings

by Jo Knowles is an interesting story told from four points of view. One point of view comes from Ellie, the main character, who feels unloved and wants a boyfriend. She has a "one-time thing" with Josh, thinking it will make him want her as his girlfriend. However, it turns out badly for both of them when Ellie ends up pregnant.

This book was good. I liked the four points of view. The way Ellie sees Josh's behavior is completely not what he feels on the inside. I was sad for Ellie at the end. I wish things would have turned out better for her and Josh. Corinne and Caleb are good friends to her, though.
