Written by Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan, Harpercollins has released the novel earlier this month. Produced by Warner Bros. with Erik Feig’s Picturestart and Greg Berlanti Productions  will produce with Rachel Lee Goldenberg attached as the director.

You can read the premise of the novel.

UNpregnant tells the story of 17-year-old Veronica (Richardson), who never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with two solid pink lines. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This tough and never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 900+ mile road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend Bailey (Ferreira), where they discover that one of the most important factors in your life is who your friends are.
