THE FIRST PART LAST

by | Read by Khalipa Oldjohn, Kole Kristi

Young Adult • 1.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Rarely do we see teen pregnancy from the father’s perspective. Narrator Khalipa Oldjohn gives realistic insight into the consequences of unexpected parenthood on one teenaged father. Alternating between “then,” when Nia told him on his sixteenth birthday that he was going to be a father, and “now,” as he struggles to raise his daughter alone, we witness Bobby coming to grips with responsibility as he struggles to do the right thing. The back-and-forth between past and present requires close attention to the narration to understand why Bobby gave up the adoption option in favor of fatherhood.
