When Ellie was a little girl, she had a doll named Daisy. She loved to dress her and give her a bottle. Now Ellie is fifteen, and she has a real baby to love. But a baby is not a doll. Taking care of Angelica isn’t anything like taking care of Daisy. In fact, it’s harder than Ellie ever could have imagined. In Doll Baby, Eve Bunting warmly but honestly portrays the truth about teenage pregnancy and motherhood, addressing all the joy and anguish, love and loss that accompany it.
