  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake Levine | 1/15/2014

    " I liked this book because it was very emotional. A lot has happened in the whole Hazelwood High series to Keisha. In her high school career, she has had a lot of emotional and physical pain. It is nice to see that in the end, she gets through her pain and is able to get past the problems in her life. Although she is going to be split from her friends in college, she feels good about herself which is the most important thing to her right now. I highly recommend this book as well as the Hazelwood High series to anyone of the age of 12 and up. "
