Imagine what it must be like to have every Friday evening end with your father smacking your mother around. Sometimes the only way he would stop was when your mom called the police. Thankfully, you could grab your younger sister and flee upstairs with her to the safety of a good friends home. What does this mean for your future?

That is exactly what it was like for Zsa-Zsa and her sister Hadiah. But that was then and this is now. Zsa-Zsa is now 17 years old. Since the time when she was 12, her da

I hope Miss Simone keeps writing for young adults, She has so much useful information for abused young adults as well as abused adults, I originally ordered this book for my teen daughters but read it for myself, needless to say I loved it, It was funny and true. It's sad but abuse comes in many forms. Some women are blessed to get out of an abusive relationship, and others aren't so lucky,. I loved the message Miss Simone was sending out to young adults in this book.

i choose these book because a friend told me to read it because it was a good book. i also chose it because my friend who told me about it has the same taste of books like i do so i thought it was going to be a good book. the genre of the book is a long chaperter book and romance and abuse. the setting took more place at home and at school. The main character is Zsa-zsa she is a teen who can drive has her own car and who lives with sister and mom her dad died from cancer she has been living with ...more

Teenage Love Affair:
We all know kids pick up habits from their parents and most of the time they can’t help it. They tell themselves they’ll never be like that, but then they recognize that same action or habit when they’re older. That’s exactly what Teenage Love Affair by Ni-Ni Simone is about.

Teenage Love Affair is a story about a girl named Zsa-Zsa, who lives in a very dramatic world. Her father gets drunk every Friday and brings home Chinese food, which Zsa-Zsa hates. When her father gets dr

This was the second time I tried reading this book. The first time, during the summer, a teen patron asked for the book and rather than put it on hold for her, I offered her my copy. This time I had to finish it because it's being considered for RI Teen Book Award list for 2012. It's a challenge reading this because of all the slang even though I'm used to hearing the kids at my library talk to each other. The message in it is a good one because it has to do with domestic violence...in families ...more

Teenage Love Affair, was another great novel by Ni-Ni Simone. Like the others that I have read it is filled with the same suspense and intensity that keeps me interested from start to finish. Anyone, that reads this novel especially teens will fall in love with it as soon as they read the first page. Simone does an excellent job relating the protagonist, Zsa Zsa, to issues that many teenagers go through in the world. One of them being abuse. The over all moral of the story is the fact that every ...more

Teenage love Affair is the one of my favorite books i have ever read. As a teenager myself, I can really relate to the main character Zsa-Zsa. Having to look after her younger sibling while her mother works long hours, I know how it exactly how it feels.

I feel like i could become a part of the story, take her place and help her out with all the drama she goes through. Having your first love triangle at 17 can be veryyyyy life changing.

This book was full of unexpected twists and turns. Growing

This is a story of a seventeen year old African American girl named Zsa-Zsa. Zsa has always had family problems when she was growing up, for example, her dad would always get drunk on Friday nights and he would beat up her mother. Zsa's mother would always call the police on him but she never had the heart to press charges on him so she would bail him out of jail every time. Zsa hated Friday nights. Every time her parents fight Zsa would take her little sister and go to Malachi house and they s ...more

Teenage love affair is one of my favorite books by ni-ni simone , she is a incredible author. This book really got to me though , threw out all her books.She learns how to be independant by herself because her mom is a crack head and she has to take care of her little siblings and still has a life of her own. This is why this is one of my favorite books.
Tiara Saddler
