You probably know someone like Jamie.  Although you might not notice her.  She's pretty average and she tends to let people walk all over her.  Sort of like a doormat.  Even her parents don't seem to notice her.  Actually, her dad has been gone for years and she doesn't know why.  Her mom is so self absorbed that there seems to be no room for Jamie.  But Jamie's life is about to change.  Her best friend is pregnant and wants Jamie's help.  But what can a 14 year old girl do to help?
