Nellie Shelton has a lot going for her. She’s seventeen, mixed-raced in a small town, and she’s just left her private high school to transfer and be the new kid…for her senior year. She has three siblings that treat her like the baby sister they’ve always known, and two parents who haven’t been in a room together since their divorce.
When she accidentally gets pregnant her sophomore year of college, she knows she’s made a horrible mistake. That’s when she realizes two important things: traveling down the wrong path is easy. Admitting it is the challenge.
As she struggles with deciding whether to keep her secret from an overprotective family, or admit she’s not as perfect as they would like, Nellie will learn that occasionally your life veers off into unexpected places. Where one decision can lead somewhere you’d never imagine. Through the Eyes of Others is the story of a girl hoping to make her family proud, while also striving to believe in true love.
