When I first started this book I was immediately turned off by the text-speak and the teen-slang and the urban trash talking. But I stuck with it and discovered that while I still didn't like the style, I did enjoy the story of a mother and daughter experiencing the teen years ultimately through another's eyes. Tamika and her mother are like gasoline and a lit match. Her mother hates her boyfriend and isn't enthused about her going off to a photography camp. Tamika considers her mother boring an ...more

She said, She said is a fiction novel written by Celeste O. and Jennifer Norfleet published in 2008. This book is about a young girl that feels her life is a mess and never gets what she wants but that’s not true. She has a mother that’s a little strict but loves her, a dad that loves her to but is never really around, a best friend for life that is always there for her and a new guy in her life that wants to treat her good but she can’t see that because of the last “player” boyfriend that did h ...more

Celeste O. Norfleet’s purpose in writing her book, She said, She said, is to show her audience that the life of a teen and adult both have its own struggles. Many teens and their parents might argue that each other’s role in life are harder or easier than another, but in reality they both carry their own weight and duty. She said, She said could show parents and the kids the importance in their life. This book reminds teens that their parents were once their age and reminds parents that their te ...more

this book basically goes to show that the adult and teen both have their own struggles. this was a great book to me. it wasn't at all the challenging for me to read. the author gives some very good advice to the reader that the reader can relate to. basically tamika was in the attic one day reading her mother's diary nd she is soon to find out that her and her mother are more alike then she knew.

I think this book is good, so good that you can't even put it down. In this book its Tamika last day of school and her boyfriends dumps her and her best friend named Lisa moves away so now she don't have nobody. As for her mother while her father goes on a monthly business trip so she is stuck for two weeks with her mother in Georgia. Its embarrassing because while they down south Tamika mother Laura tries to be young again by partying with her old friends and getting drunk.

It was pretty weird how the protagonist's mom wanting to be a sixteen-year-old again. It's understandable that the mother didn't have the opportunity to live her life as a teen, but still, it's just the fact that she's finally realized, that her young years, are over. On the other hand, you do look young if you feel young.

YA--part of the new genre of African American teen fiction. The major theme is the conflict between mother and daughter--set in today's landscape. The family is middle class and the mother has to go South to close up the family home and drags her daughter with her.
Treasure McCarver
so far from what I've read, the differences between the mother and daughter are so realistic. everybody goes through the same thing where you and your parents just don't get along. I think everyone who reads this book can relate right off the back.
