13 Days of Love: Day 6 Borrowed Light & First Part Last

Borrowed Lightby Anna Fienberg

Callisto feels alienated from her family and boyfriend. She needs someone more than ever right now as she is deciding whether or not to have an abortion. She needs someone to love and to lover her back, but her father is distant and her mother is too consumed by her own grief to pay any attention to Callisto or her brother. Her young brother is the only one who shows her affection, but she has too much on her mind to deal with him. And her boyfriend all but abandoned her as soon as she got pregnant.

Callisto has to find the courage to do what she needs to do, and to stand up for herself and her brother. At what cost will she find the love that she craves? In the end, it is up to her.
