This is an auction for THE MOST WANTED by Jacquelyn Mitchard. reviews:

"A naive teenage girl in south Texas falls in love with her prison pen pal. The object of her affection--a charming, dangerously handsome young felon who romances her through his letters to her. After a love affair that defies all conventions, they marry and have a child while the father is still imprisoned. But when he escapes prison to claim his wife and child, what started as a passionate romance turns into a terrifying ordeal of obsession and desire. The young girls only hope is a fiercely dedicated public aid lawyer who is more of a mother figure than the girl has ever known, and the only one who can avert disaster for mother and child!"

"FIVE STARS!! This is the story of Arley, a young girl whose childhood history of neglect by her mother leads her to pursue a toxic relationship with an adult prison inmate, Dillon Legrande. She gets married to him at 14 years old. Arley enlists the legal aid to get her and Dillon a conjugal visit after their wedding. On their honeymoon, during which she has her first sexual experience in a prison trailer, she becomes pregnant. This story shows that blood is not thicker than water and that families do not have to be based on DNA."

"FIVE STARS! I'd read this book several times before, and I enjoyed it just as much this time. That's how good it is. The characters are luminous, the writing is lovely, the story is captivating. And who doesn't want to read a book about a 14 year old girl who marries a guy who's twice her age...and is in prison? :) But really. It's so good."
