Dré's birthday party has arrived so Denim asks her mom if she is allowed to go. Denim knows the rule "no partying until your 16" but because its Dré she asks her mom for permission ...more
This book reminded me alot about myself and my life, there was alot of comparison from me to the book. Dre had to get Denim's parents approval before they started dating. My mother tried to pull that move, but I didn't agree because personally think her approval isn't needed because she's not the one dating him.

When I read this book I felt as if I had already been through the conflict.Meaning it felt like everything was happening in my living room.Denim Reminds me of my sister and how she tried to get her boyfriend to follow the right path because she knew she was gonna be at the end waiting for him with success.I think a lot of young women who are looking forward to become more then what society has in store for them deserves a good young man who wants the same for himself and her.I enjoyed this book ...more
i Think This Book Was A Very Goood Book Most Teens My Age Probably Would Like It Because The Author Made The Book So Suspensful Where You Just Keep Wanting To Read It No Matter What . The Setting Was All Over THe Place For Explame At School , Denim House , Party's And Ect . This Was Very Fast Enough To Hold ANYBODY Interest !
I Loved This Book!!!!!!1 I saw on the shelf and the title just called to me. It was a very good book. This book is good 4 more teenagers like myself or preteens. It tells about love of a young couple. I won't tell anything else. I don't spoil books for other people. Well if u read i hope you like it as much as i do.
Denim Diaries: 16 going On 21 is the first book of the enthralling Denim Diaries series that tells the urban story of the lives of the teenagers at Langley High. The young Denim Mitchell has fallen head over heels and would do anything for her first love, Andre Patterson, even break or bend the rules. One dance, one lie, one party changes the course of their lives and their peers’ lives forever.
This book is really what an every day teenager goes through mostly all the time and I think that who ever reads this book will fall in love with it and never would want to put it down.Because this book is about getting pregnant your first and only love mean girls and best friends so i hope you enjoy this book as much as i did!

Denim is a very compassionate, smart, and very attractive young woman. But, watch as the story unfolds Demin shares her soul with a former boyfriend Dre. What?I like about the book that eye-catching is how it all boils down denim handled the experience with Dre like a young woman.
i loved this book because it reminded me of how life is in my time now and what us teenagers go through. everytime i read the book i didnt wanna stop reading and i ended up finishing the book in like a two and a half days. iwanted to finish reading the other parts of the books.
