The worst book I've ever read. It would almost be worth burning all the books in the world to make sure that no one has to read this utter garbage again. I wouldn't use the pages for toilet paper. If someone asks you for a book to read, and all you have is "Dirty Jersey" and Hitler's "Mein Kampf," give them the latter.

Dirty Jersey is a two stroy person book. What i mean by that is the book tells two stroies at once from two differnt point of views. Brother to a sister and lame to a popular. The first chapter starts with Eric Posey's story, he starts off alwyas getting picked on and getting into to fights with the high school bully. While his life is going from bad to worse his sisters life is also going down the drain because of her brother and her love life. Kenya , Eric's younger sister has the brains, beau ...more

This book was about an unpopular boy, Eric, and how he becomes "cool" after meeting and befriending a famous rapper. I found this book to really drag, but wanted to finish it so I could review the entire book. I felt that the pop culture references was a little overdone. And if some people really do talk and think like the people in this book, I think I would go crazy having to hear it all of the time. I found the characters to be either boring or completely unlikable. I did like the meeting of ...more

As far as urban fiction for teens went, I liked this one, though it followed a stereotypical plot that requires readers to suspend their beliefs. Eric is the geeky boy that's being tormented physically and emotionally at school. A chance encounter, late in the book, with a rap star provides him with automatic street cred and elevates his status, especially when he's picked up in an expensive status style car. But, the rapper's not all about giving, he wants Eric to offer up his sister, Kenya, as ...more

I selected this book because I love to read books that deal with drama. Dirty Jersey dealt with a guy name Eric he was a high school student that always wanted to become popular. His sister Kenya was popular during school everyone liked her. But then the dynamics changed and he became the popular one. This book best quality is that I couldn't get my eyes out of the book. The worst thing about this book is how the book ended. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves to read about drama. ...more

This book is amasing and talks to me. i love books like these because it happends to alot of teens now a days. So far eric just got to know Fiasco (He's a rapper thats just coming out) and he wants his help. this is really big to him because in school he's known as the lamnest boy ever. Everyone there hates him, including his sister. She thinks hving him as a brother is slowing her down. People around the school stay talki trash bout him and all he want's in to be the cool guy and the one everyo ...more

I felt really sorry for Eric Posey. He wanted to make friends the wrong way: by not being himself, and becoming someone else that he is not. His sister, Kenya, enacted the same way Eric felt after she found out she wasn;t as popular as she used to be. Society today depends upon the media to determine who they are and how they should act toawrds others, which is definitely not good. This book showed a valuable lesson about this topic.

So far it's a pretty good book but I don't know much about it yet because I just started reading it. I choose this book because I've been reading other books in series like this one and wanted to try out a new series to see how I liked it.
