The series documents the evermore complicated yet heart warming life of Amy Juergens; a typical high-school student who is characterized by her ambition and musical talent. However, it is after one hormonal-driven night at Band Camp, that she is faced with a responsibility no 15-year-old wants to take; being a teen mom. The audience is taken on a journey with Amy as she confronts her problem and the father of her baby.Written by

I actually watch this show on a regular basis, but am slightly ashamed about it. It is indeed a ridiculous show, but no worse than any other soap opera I suppose. I read some of the other reviews that said that the characters are poorly developed, and I would have to agree. Amy, for being the main character is definitely not a likable character for some reason. She's whiny and fails to make a whole lot of sense. Although a silly show, I find myself watching it week after week. The dialogue is hilarious because it is so unrealistic. My husband detests the show and can't believe that I watch it. We have since made a game out of the ridiculous scripts: we count how many times the word "sex" is uttered in the show. That seems to make it much more entertaining to watch, and typically the count is up to 30 some times per show. Too funny!
