Amy Grossberg and Brian Peterson grew up in a wealthy New Jersey suburb, met and fell in love while still in high school, then set out for college with their classmates.
But in November of their freshman year, the two young lovers spent a night in a Delaware motel room where, after hiding her pregnancy from her family and her friends for nine months, Amy gave birth to a baby boy.

The case caused a countrywide outrage, and the teenagers ended up in court, desperately fighting for their lives and ultimately against each other . . .
