Spike is a 1988 book by Loretta Castellarin and Ken Roberts and the third Degrassi Classic novel.

Blurb[]

Spike--14 years old, a grade-eight student, and pregnant. Like lots of teenagers, she and Shane don't really think that when they slip into the bedroom at a friend's house they could come out pregnant--but they do.

In this book Spike tells what it's like to be in junior high and having a baby. So many decisions, so many questions--not to mention dealing with Shane, her mum, and her friends. It's not easy, but Spike is no quitter. She faces her problems with honesty and a strong will. And finally, Shane does too.
