You Don't Know Me but I Know You

Rebecca Barrow

Barrow’s bright and honest debut examines the impact of a life-changing choice. After learning that she’s pregnant, 17-year-old Audrey Spencer must make an overwhelming decision that will affect the rest of her life. Adopted as a baby herself, she considers that option and wonders how the life of her child might differ from her own upbringing. Audrey is paralyzed by her own what-ifs and terrified by the distance she feels growing between her and her best friend Rose. She also sees her dreams of art school and a career in photography slipping away. A letter from her birth mother plays an important role in her decision, but the choice is ultimately what Audrey believes is best for herself, her boyfriend Julian, and their child.
