The antagonist is Nia and her health situation. Since she cannot take care of the baby, Bobby will have to take care alone.
K-Boy and JL are Bobby’s best friends. They sometime help him with Feather. They are pretty stunned when Bobby tells them that Nia and questions if they should keep her. Little do they know that Bobby will do an excellent job at raising Feather, he just has to get used to it.
Paul, Bobby’s brother, is a great example of how to be a responsible man and take care of your children.
Mr. and Mrs. Wilkins are Nia’s parents who are very distraught when the doctors tell them Nia is in persistent vegetative state.
I think that this is one of the best books I’ve ever read. The First Part Last main character, Bobby, had a lot of courage to take on the responsibility of taking care of a child all alone. I do not know anybody that would do something like that. Usually the mother only takes care of the child, but this book is exceptional because the father is the one taking care of a child. I commend this young man for being so brave. He faced many obstacles, but those didn't stop him. Bobby did not let the fact that he was a teenager and that Nia was in a serious condition get in the way of him raising his child. I think that every teenager should read this book.
