I think what I liked most about this book is that it is written in free-verse-type prose, which was beautiful. Also, I felt this book did a nice job capturing the thought process and feelings of the main character LaVaughn as she goes through different things in life concerning friends, family, school, and boys. I think this book just does a nice job following LaVaughn as she deals with sensitive issues and life's upheavals.

Violence: 2 (mentions violence on the streets)
Sexual References: 4 (I don't remember anything too intense, but the main character is a hormonal teenage girl and the book talks about trying to avoid high school pregnancy)
Drugs: 1 (I don't quite remember, but it may mention drugs in passing)
Language: 2
General Uncomfortability: 6 (Deals with a sensitive issue)
