I did a book report on The Baby Project in grade 8, and it ended up being one of those books I often think of. Beautifully written and powerfully moving the Baby Project is a story for the ages.

Jessica is excited to hear that she will soon become a big sister. She decides to base her class project on her new little sister, Lucie, and begins before she is even born. Parts of the project include reading him stories and singing songs while she is still in the womb. Tragic events cause our heroin to turn her back on this project, breaking the heart of the reader.
