My Opinion: Inappropriate Topic in Books

I was reading a book magazine and it was giving the information on up coming books. One of the books among Young Adult books for ages 14+ was a book about a girl who gets pregnant at 16 years old and its set in the future. This girl goes to an Earth orbiting cruise liner school for pregnant teens. She has to deal with the knocked up girlfriend of the guy who got her pregnant and deal with invading aliens. It's the first book in a trilogy. It's supposed to be a comedy. Personally if I had a teen I would not let them read anything like this book.

The plot is trying to put a funny entertaining look on teen pregnancy. I think we should have teens read books that are appropriate but still entertaining. I think glorifying teen pregnancy isn't something we should do. When I read the book details I was appaled and I couldn't believe what I was reading.
