What's new in LaVaughn's life is Jody, a boy she knew as a child who's come back to the housing project where she lives. Jody is like a miracle: he smells like chlorine; he calls her little buddy; he goes with her to the dance. It's just as if he's in love with her. Except not quite.

As LaVaughn puzzles over Jody, as her best friends struggle with belief and acceptance, and as Jody wrestles with questions about his own identity, Virginia Euwer Wolff rises to the occasion with this astonishing and powerfully moving novel, the second in the Make Lemonade trilogy.

    " True Believer is a Printz honor book. After LaVaughn's experience babysitting Jolly's kids in Make Lemonade, LaVaughn sets off to tackle high school. As the school year starts, she realizes a childhood friend is back living three floors up in the apartment building. He is very attractive. She instantly falls in love. He is a swimmer and has the same goal as LaVaughn- to go to college. LaVaughn is offered a special language class to help correct her grammar. She joins this class and really gets some good guidance and fellowship from the other students and the teacher in the class. This is a important to her because her two best friends from when she was little have joined a church group that is too extreme to include LsVsughn. LaVaughn is very hurt. On top of this LaVaughn's mom is thinking about moving away to a house in the suburbs with her boyfriend. It really seems as if this will happen. There is a shooting at school. LaVaughn is sick about leaving the life and friends she has created for herself. Mostly she doesn't want to leave Jody. He is all she can think about. LaVaugh gets a job at the hospital folding laundry. She really feels for the little ones there who are sick. This will also have an impact on her life. LaVaughn deals with all of these problems very well. It is interesting to see how she copes with what life asks. I have already recommended this book to a student who was having trouble with the confliction religious beliefs of her friends. Poverty is faced head on in the Make Lemonade series. True Believer is a very strong message. I would give this book a 5 for quality and a 5 for popularity. This is such an easy read that creates many lessons and messages to help kids through rough times. "

    " The 2nd book in the Make Lemonade Trilogy, this book continues LaVaughnn's story as a student at an inner city high school. She has her mind set that she will go to college in a few years, but first she must survive high school, which is getting hard now that her best friends are leaving her out, her mom has a new boyfriend, and she is in love with a boy that won't give her the time of day. It is heart-warming, hilarious, and inspiriring all at once. "
