Introduction

It Happened to Nancy by an anonymous teenager EDITED BY BEATRICE SPARKS "It Happened to Nancy" is an auto-biography Dairy written by an anonymous Teenager. This diary however was edited by Beatrice Sparks and published by AVON BOOKS in 1994. She edited many other books, and diaries such as "Finding Kate", or "Annie's Baby". This touching yet sad story is about a girl called Nancy whose life turns for the worst once her true love Collin Eagle an attractive college student betrays her. In this book; strangely, it does not tell the setting of Nancy's home town, but it does say she lives close to her friends; Red, El, Dorie and Lew. She goes to a concert with her friends and that is where she meets her supposedly true love Collin. ...read more.

Middle

It teaches all teen's world wide that this can happen to anyone, and the dangerous facts of AIDS. It teaches us that once you have a situation like this happen to you, tell someone immediately. Throughout the whole book Nancy mentions about how she wishes to be a child again, cradled in her mothers arms. Once she confesses to her mother and friends she feels as though a huge weight is lifted of her shoulders. I personally do agree with the author that once a like this situation happens to you to contact someone because it can get worse, and just like it happened to Nancy, it can happen to you. "It happened to Nancy" is a touching story like no other. The emotion and vivid detail make you become one with the book and experience the dramatic events the same way the Nancy did. ...read more.

Conclusion

Nancy's rape happened in only a matter of minutes. I feel as though it shows how life really can be, unlike many other books that tend to be a bit over dramatic. I guess you can say that this book has its own unique approach on the reader. "It Happened to Nancy" is worth anyone's time especially with the valuable lessons learned about safe sex that most teens are puzzled about. All parents and teens should have an opportunity to read this novel to know some things that others don't. Also parents should be able to see a teenager's perspective on life and teens will be able to see what life really is. If parents find out what can happen to their child it will prevent teens to do the same because just like it happened to Nancy it can happen to you.
