Listener Opinions

    " A fierce, thought-provoking read. Laugh out loud funny in some parts, gritty and sad in others. Loved the urban teen voice, fast pace, and staccato writing style. The optimist in me longed for someone to Do The Right Thing--maybe readers will. Great discussion book for high school, reminiscent of Julia Alvarez and Sandra Cisneros. "

    " I love Rita Williams-Garcia so I was excited to read her newest book. It was a great, quick read on a current, relevant topic. This will be perfect for high school girls who hate to read (and high school boys should like it too.) It will also serve as a conversation starter. The only fault I have with the book is that getting to know the characters got a bit tiresome at times. I felt that I knew Trina and Dominique after the first half of the book, I would have preferred a bit more focus on Leticia and her dilemma. All in all though, a great book by a great author! "

    " The word "gritty" keeps being used to describe this one, but that's not really a word I'd use. Yes, it is rough and has that real world flavor, but it's a tad too repetitive to be gritty. While the premise is good and the characters are solid, I felt that many of the chapters were just padding. The explosive conclusion--which caught me completely by surprise--is what really saves this book. This might not be a "must-read", but it's a "should-read". "

    " All I can say is I am so glad my high school was not like the one the girls in this book go to. It's a pretty harsh look at an inner city school where the girls are self-centered and mean as hell. "
