This book was amazing. At first i did not really like it, but then it started to get a little interesting because the main character, Imani started to talk about how bad her life is, not knowing her mother, how her father is always working and she only has her grandmother that is always in her room. She had a lot of problems until she met this guy named Maurice. They started to go out and Imani realized that he really cared for her, especially since everything went out of control when she made a ...more

An excerpt from Gettin' Hooked ...
"What if we could see this info about guys from each other's schools? And what if they could see ours?"
"They can."
"But only people on friends lists. And, that could be anyone, from across the country. That's whack and does us no good in finding prom dates. What if there was a way to keep this local? Just our two high school."
"Like our own locals-only MySpace?"
Imani Lane has a problem in finding a prom date because she does not want to go with anyone from her

I would really like to write in-depth explanation for all the reasons why I did not like this book, but merely thinking about it makes my head spin. So I'll make it as concise as possible.
First of all, as I'm sure the majority of all other readers have already expressed, the explicit use of slang made the book very difficult to follow, understand, like, etc. Very few, if any, talk in the same manner as the characters of Gettin' Hooked.
Another major fault was how the entirety of the novel was sha
Apr 29, 2011 Doneisha rated it really liked it
This book was very realistic and kept me reading. It's about teenage cousins; one white (Kayla), and one black (Imani), who starts an internet hook-up site to try and find someone to go to the prom with. Kayla ends up going out of town on a weekend when she was home alone, leaving Imani with no choice but to go find her, along with Kayla's neighbor.
This is something I would never do, keeping in mind that there are petafiles and just plain crazy, phsyco individuals on internet sites. And travel

Originally reviewed - 4/7/08

The plot was great but I didn't like the dialogue to much. It seemed as if the author was trying too hard to connect with the readers which made the book very difficult to read. One word is all I have to say to Ms. Scott....RESEARCH. Research the way teens talk. Write down or tape what they say. You got a little bit of it right you just need to let it flow. Other than that your story was really good, I'd like to read more about Imani and Her mother's relationship.

Blech. If wasnt sent by publisher never ever would have picked up. The slang in this book makes me want to bang my head against a wall. Ahhhh, someone give me a book actually worth reading and fast!

i have learned that if you like someone you should just go on ahead and tell the person instead of going with somebody else to make them jealous
