Young Hanna thinks her thirteenth birthday will be no different than the one before-until her mother explains the facts of life. Hanna is a "bridge daughter," born pregnant with her parents' child. In a few months she will give birth and die, leaving her parents with their true daughter. A mature bookworm who dreams of college and career, Hanna is determined to overcome her biological fate. Navigating through a world eerily like our own, she confronts unyielding attitudes and instinctive fears as old as humankind itself. Then Hanna learns of an illegal procedure that will allow her to live to the cost of the child's life.
