Never Judge a Book by Stacey Broadbent

Jess finds herself on a position no young girl ever dreams of when she thinks about her future. She’s on her own after ending her abusive relationship and she’s expecting. Her family is supportive, but how do ever work yourself out of hole that deep?

Nathan Frost has a criminal record. He’s done time. He wants to make a fresh start, but people are judgmental and refuse to believe a person can make bad choices and learn from them. But one look at the sad-faced pregnant girl in the library and he’s sunk. But how do you show a mother to be that there is more to you than meets the eye?

Stacey Broadbent captures the struggles of Jess and Nathan in a beautiful story of loss, love, and longevity. On the surface, there is nothing more pure than a mother to be and nothing more evil than a criminal. Broadbent examines the theme of never judge a book by its cover through Jess and Nathan and brings to light the need for less snap decision judgements and more heartfelt character examinations. Broadbent fills this budding romance with the best gift, the gift of hope, despite the many mistakes one may make. If you haven’t read Never Judge a Book then there is no time like the present to get turning those pages.

When I pictured my future, I never imagined I would be pregnant and on my own, but this is my reality. I had my baby to think about, and being with a lying, cheating man-child suddenly didn’t hold as much appeal.
Turning back to the one thing that has always grounded me, I immersed myself in books; the local library, my playground. That’s where I met him.

I’ve spent my life trying to be the perfect child and stay out of trouble. People only see what they want to, though. The Frost Brothers are no good.
I’ve done my time, and now I’m trying to get on with my life. It wasn’t my intention to fall for someone, let alone a girl who clearly belonged to someone else. She didn’t look at me like everyone else did. But could she really fall for a guy like me?
