The oddest thing about this book is that the blurb on the back that describes the plot is completely wrong. Apparently somebody wrote the description without actually reading the book. Best friends Lark and Kenya along with Kenya's little brother Eric and Eric's friend, a famous rapper named Fiasco, all spend the summer before Lark and Kenya leave for college learning more about the hidden secrets in each other's lives.

Pretty easy read, but the character Kenya was so annoying the way she broke up with her boyfriend, and then expected him to mope around about her forever while she was at college admiring other guys herself...I used to totally be into these Kimani Tru books, but I guessed I kind of grew out of the drama that seems to perpetuate around these characters' lives.
