    Love and Haight , is a book that takes place in the 70 s The book is about 17 year old, Chloe, who is traveling to California with her best friend MJ over New Year s At first MJ thinks they are just going to party hard with Chloe s Aunt Kiki, but on the way there MJ finds out Chloe s real plan In the 70 s there were only two states in the U.S that allowed what Chloe needed, an abortion Since, Chloe and MJ are from Arizona and her Aunt lives in Sacramento she came up with the perfect plan F Love and Haight , is a book that takes place in the 70 s The book is about 17 year old, Chloe, who is traveling to California with her best friend MJ over New Year s At first MJ thinks they are just going to party hard with Chloe s Aunt Kiki, but on the way there MJ finds out Chloe s real plan In the 70 s there were only two states in the U.S that allowed what Chloe needed, an abortion Since, Chloe and MJ are from Arizona and her Aunt lives in Sacramento she came up with the perfect plan First she had to go to the hospital for a check up, then to a psychiatrist to OK that Chloe was in need of an abortion for her mental health, then the board meeting and she d have everything she needed, except for a parental permission The book goes through Chloe s adventures, morning sickness, her relationship with MJ s brother, Teddy, that MJ has no clue ever happened, and how keeping secrets from friends can almost terminate the perfect friendship.Chloe is the main character of this book She is what I would call a pretty anxious person She didn t want to go out and party with MJ, even though she was getting an abortion so it s not like she would be putting the baby in anydanger than she already was She also shows a lot of strength throughout the book that is very admirable MJ, is Chloe s best friend She is upbeat, ready to party, and very religious MJ helps Chloe through most of the adventure, until she finds out the secrets that Chloe was keeping Kiki is Chloe s crazy Aunt who smokes weed and gets drunk all the time She is really into releasing your feelings too Teddy is MJ s brother, and the guy who Chloe dated all last summer while MJ was at camp MJ had no idea about it until this trip.I think the setting of this story is very important The story couldn t take place unless it was in California or Chloe would not be getting an abortion The story also takes place close to Berkeley which is the college Teddy attends so it would also take a lot out of the story if it weren t for that I think that the theme of this story is basically to not keep secrets Chloe s aunt, mom, or Teddy had any idea about the abortion until close to the end of the book When all the secrets came out nothing but trouble was in store for Chloe So in other words, be honest I would not recommend this book to anyone under the age of 17 There are very bad influences happening in the book and a lot of parts that can be very inappropriate It is a very good book however, and I enjoyed reading it everyday

    It s a heady time in San Francisco in the early 1970 s, and Chole and MJ are caught in the thick of it Ostensibly, they ve gone to visit Chloe s free spirited aunt Kiki, but Chloe has an ulterior motive She s pregnant, and in San Francisco it s barely legal for her to have an abortion As a pro life person, it is really hard for me to write an unbiased review of this book, because reading it felt like reading a book where you know the main character will commit suicide at the end You keep s It s a heady time in San Francisco in the early 1970 s, and Chole and MJ are caught in the thick of it Ostensibly, they ve gone to visit Chloe s free spirited aunt Kiki, but Chloe has an ulterior motive She s pregnant, and in San Francisco it s barely legal for her to have an abortion As a pro life person, it is really hard for me to write an unbiased review of this book, because reading it felt like reading a book where you know the main character will commit suicide at the end You keep shaking the book and yelling It doesn t have to end like this And yet, it does no good Anyway, here goesThe author does a great job of portraying Chloe s inner tensions, her ambivalence, emotional state, and occasional doubts Overall, the prose was very beautiful Some of the characters, however, fell flat Teddy and MJ, especially felt kind of like cardboard cut outs inserted into the appropriate slots I also commend the author for sensitively handling a controversial topic without preaching too much although I thought the pro life protesters were stereotypical in the extreme But maybe that s what the pro life movement of 70 s was like I would recommend this book especially to pro life people, as it promotes conversation and compassion both very good things

    I thought this was really lovely It s got quite a simple plot girl goes to san francisco to get an abortion it s 1971 , but it s really captivating plus, I adore san franciso in 1971 and all the other years too.

    This is a novel about a girl trying to get an abortion Accordingly, I should ve terminated my readership during the book s first trimester, but I read it full term I lost custody of it shortly after.

    This was okay I wish the book talkedabout Chloe s emotions instead of just focusing on the weird behaviors and rituals of the counterculture scene around her.

    Love and Haight Love and Haight is about two friends named Chloe and Mj that take a road trip to San Francisco They are not just there for a vacation, Chloe is there because she s pregnant and needs an abortion They both go to Chloe s aunt Kiki s house to stay with her The setting of this book is in the 1970 s and during this time abortion was barely legal in California, it took many procedures to get to the outcome Chloe keeps her secret from everyone but Mj, although she waits until they Love and Haight Love and Haight is about two friends named Chloe and Mj that take a road trip to San Francisco They are not just there for a vacation, Chloe is there because she s pregnant and needs an abortion They both go to Chloe s aunt Kiki s house to stay with her The setting of this book is in the 1970 s and during this time abortion was barely legal in California, it took many procedures to get to the outcome Chloe keeps her secret from everyone but Mj, although she waits until they are on their way to San Francisco to tell her why they re really going Towards the end of the book Chloe s decision seems to impact everyone else around her too, and things become muchconflicted for Chloe in such a free spirited, peaceful time I love how the author depicts the characters and the 70s influence in all of their tastes What had drawn me to this book was the era and setting, last year I traveled to San Francisco and met my close friend who s grown up there, just two months later I flew back and stayed with her for two weeks During the period I was there we went to Haight Ashbury quite often and met a lot of cool people hanging out around hippie hill in Golden Gate Park, I even sat on top of the tree Janis Joplin was rud to write songs under Although I don t know what it was like in the 70s it is definitely a place that seems to still be influenced by that era, this book has reflected that Reading this book has created great nostalgia for me, minus the pregnancy crisis

    San Francisco, the tail end of 1971 Chloe s on a road trip with her best friend, MJ, but Chloe has plans beyond a fun winter break California is one of the few places where she can legally get an abortion.I read it because of the timing am still going through a 60s and 70s phase, thanks in no small part to Left on Pearl For Chloe, though, the 70s aren t a time of revolution and protests and action at least, not so farshe has most of the 70s left Instead she s facing a difficult situa San Francisco, the tail end of 1971 Chloe s on a road trip with her best friend, MJ, but Chloe has plans beyond a fun winter break California is one of the few places where she can legally get an abortion.I read it because of the timing am still going through a 60s and 70s phase, thanks in no small part to Left on Pearl For Chloe, though, the 70s aren t a time of revolution and protests and action at least, not so farshe has most of the 70s left Instead she s facing a difficult situation rendered all thedifficult by the fact that her options are so limited.I m torn on this one, to be honest, because while I enjoyed it a great deal and think it or the author managed to do what it she set out to, I would have loved At its crux it s a pretty standard YA novel, just with the 70s a few years too late for the summer of love and a teenage pregnancy thrown in That s not a bad thing, but it feels like this could have been so muchNot sure if that s fair to wish for, though, since all thatprobably would have turned it into a very different book.There s great complexity in the characters thoughts, at any rate nobody least of all Chloe is 100 percent sure that she s on the right path, but ultimately the secondary characters are able to support Chloe when she makes the decision she does Didn t get as deep into it as I would have liked, but then, it s a pretty short book.One of these days I ll find a book that feels so quintessentially late 60s early 70s in a wildly over the top, flower power, unrealistic way that I ll be able to stop lookinggrumble that it s unrealistic and keep lookinghave to admit that I ll never be satisfiedfigure out how to finish that sentence.Brief discussion of this and Every Little Thing in the World here

    This was not a bad book, but it did not evoke the atmosphere of the era as I experienced it In the author s bio it states she did not come of age during the hippie era, so the book gives the impression of someone who is writing about something she has heard of and read about, not something she experienced Obviously this would be an unreasonable expectation of a book set in the distant past, but I would have liked to have feltimmersed in the culture of the era, since it is set during a pe This was not a bad book, but it did not evoke the atmosphere of the era as I experienced it In the author s bio it states she did not come of age during the hippie era, so the book gives the impression of someone who is writing about something she has heard of and read about, not something she experienced Obviously this would be an unreasonable expectation of a book set in the distant past, but I would have liked to have feltimmersed in the culture of the era, since it is set during a period which I and millions of others who are still alive experienced.The book is mainly about abortion, what it is like to have to make that decision, and how loved ones may react to your decision Even in that task the book fails There should have been at least one major character that staunchly opposed the abortion, no matter how much they loved the main character Anonymous protesters outside an abortion clinic were presented but they were not nearly as confrontational as they could have been Those are the reasons this book rates only two stars with me It is a YA book, so I suppose for a 13 year old it might be a good introduction to the era as well as an exploration of the emotions involved in dealing with abortion It still could have been a much better book and served both those purposes

    Two stars because she throws a Bowie album out the window just kidding If this book had been longer, I do not think I would have bothered to finish it But when you ve read 90 pages and you re over halfway done, it s embarrassing if it s left unfinished However, I really enjoyed the sneak peek into 1970s San Francisco, but several of the references especially to the music of the time felt forced.
