Growing up, Gaby Rodriguez was told more than once that she would end up a teen mom. After all, her mother had been a teen mom, and her older sisters had as well. Gaby had ambitions that didn't include becoming a young mother. But she wondered: how she would be perceived if she "lived down" to others expectations about the path her life would take? This question is what sparked Gaby's school project: fake her own pregnancy as a high school senior and see how her friends, family, and community reacts. What she learned changed her life forever. In THE PREGNANCY TEST, Gaby shares her experience growing up in the shadow of low expectations, reveals how she was able to fake her own pregnancy, and reveals all that she learned from the experience.
