About the Author
Gaby Rodriguez made national headlines in 2011 when, as a seventeen-year-old high school senior from Toppenish, Washington, she revealed she had faked a pregnancy for a class project. Her experience inspired a Lifetime movie, also titled The Pregnancy Project. Her grades were in the top 5% of her graduating class, and she was a commencement speaker. She was also in the ASB Leadership group and president of the school's chapter of MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil de Chicanos de Aztlan: Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan). She was raised by her single mom and has seven brothers and sisters. Jenna Glatzer is the author, ghostwriter, and coauthor of more than thirty books, including Céline Dion's authorized biography, a Marilyn Monroe biography authorized by her estate, several children's picture books, memoirs, business and leadership books, books for writers, and other adult nonfiction books on topics ranging from fertility to bullying. Her books have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today show, Good Morning America, Dr. Phil, Access Hollywood, The View, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, and in People, Time, and many others.
."..Gaby's story is vividly told with a strong voice and a great story arc that begins with her parents and ends with a call to other teens and adults to stop the cycle of teen pregnancy, motherhood and poverty. THE PREGNANCY PROJECT is not just a good read, but an important one as well." - BookReporter.com
