    "I have been trying to understand what goes through a teenager's head, so I decided to pick up Someone Like You. I was really impressed with this book, as it made me emotional throughout the character's experiences. It is about two friends, who are similar in their tragic adventures. You will probably cry now and then, but it is really an eye opener of their experiences. A must read! "

    "The Best and Hardest thing is a different take on teen pregnancy. Rather than a normal story, it uses poetry to tell the story and is a bit different. I would prefer a regular story to the poetry lead story, but it still works in telling the story."

    "This book has a lot of heart but doesn't lose its sense of humor. I previewed this book for my granddaughter and felt it would be enlightening reading for her in a couple of years. Well presented depiction of emotional coming of age."

    "I know It's Over but c.k. kelly martin. The story is familiar in that it is teenage love, and a teenage pregnancy. The unique perspective I Know It's Over is that "Nick" is telling the story. It is heartbreaking and vulnerable and tells the story with honesty and integrity that teens will feel they can relate to. "

    "This is typical propaganda trying to humanize black people. It's meant to be an emotion manipulator. It's not a quality book."
