Обзор книги IMMACULATE. Her father is certain that Mina slept with her boyfriend, Nate, and wont admit it. Nobody believes Minas claims of virginity. Meanwhile Nate is certain that Mina cheated on him and breaks up with her in disgust. As tensions escalate and the scandals area of impact grows ever wider, Mina struggles to focus on her most important goal: keeping her miracle baby safe. There are those who want her to confess her lies and give up the baby, and there are those who fight to support Minas right to live her life and structure her beliefs as she sees fit. Her best friend thinks maybe Mina was raped and has invented this story because she cant come to terms with what really happened. This isnt unheard of in the small Pennsylvania town where she lives, though her classmates had assumed that she, the shoo-in for class valedictorian, would have been more likely to make it out unscathed. The summer before her senior year in high school, Mina gets pregnant. Only Mina knows the truth, and in maintaining it, she not only alienates her boyfriend, friends, relatives, classmates--she also becomes the center of a religious maelstrom. But what makes Minas pregnancy truly unusual is that shes never had sex.
