I just loved this book. It makes unaware teenagers of the real-life issues that we are always on the ledge about. We, as teenagers, think that just one time won't hurt. However, this book makes us realize that actions of two minutes, as is most of the case, can effect the rest of our life.
The other issues that are faced, such as Chris's mom, are very real. The author gets deep into the emotions of Chris and Helen. As another reader complained of Helen's whining, it sounded to me that helen is really just expressing her emotions with no one to turn to, I think that I would respond the same way.
I love it, it must get a five star, it's one of the best books I have ever read.
I think that all teenagers should read this book, in order to understand that the whole two to three minutes of pleasure, can put all of your life on the back burner.

"Dear Nobody," Helen's letters start. You may ask, "who is Nobody?" or "Why is this Helen girl writing to someone who doesn't exist?" The answer is that Nobody is 18 year old Helen Garton's baby, growing inside her. Nobody is Chris' baby too, and so when Helen breaks their relationship saying, "I just need some time to figure everything out" he is furious. This just adds to Chris' list of problems of passing his exams, finding and talking to his ex-mother, and making his desions about college. Helen also has many probems to deal with, like college, exams, abortion, and regaining her mother's friendship and love. Find out how Helen & Chris figure their complicated lives out by reading "Dear Nobody", a **** out of ***** star book.

Dear Nobody is a very good book,a story full of question that makes you think,about what it`s like for teenagers to be in that kind of situation,when the desicion that they make can change their lives.The book shows how these two teenagers go from being teenagers to the more adolt life.I give the book four stars and not five because the ending is not that good..

I just finished the novel "Dear Nobody" by Berlie Doherty. It is a story of two high school seniors that fall in love. The girl- Helen or "Nell"- gets pregnant near the beginning of the book. This book is a collection of her letters to her unborn child and also Chris's side of the story. Nell's feelings towards her unborn child change from hate to love throughout the book. She and Chris must make decisions with maturity that they weren't meant to make at such a young age. I loved it!

This book was soooo good! I couldnt put the book down! I would recommend this book to a anyone who enjoys highschool/teenage drama. The shared narative of Helen and Chris was wonderful. Berlie Doherty allows the readers to know both sides of the relationship. This is a wonderful book! I Love it!

I couldn't put it down and it only took me 2 days to read it. I hope that everyone else who reads this will emjoy it as much as I did.

we only can recommend this book to other people, who are interested in youth problems, esp. in pregnancy. It is written very emotionally and it is really full of tension.
