I absouletly enjoyed this book. I had so many questions while reading this book. I usually got my questions answered, but i was very surprised on some of the ideas in the book.
This book is about a fifteen year old girl named Kenisha Lewis and she thought she had the perfect life; with great friends, a perfect family, and the perfect boyfriend. She thought everything was going well until she found out that her parents were going to get a divorce, but Kenisha just found out that they were not even married. Kenisha started to become very confused, especially when her mother and herself moved into her grandmother's crammed house. Kenisha was very upset because her father left her mother and herself for another woman with twin boys and another baby girl on the way. Everything was happening so fast because her friends were acting strange, (especially her so- called cousin Jade, which is actually a surprise towards the end because that is Kenisha's half- sister) and her boyfriend dumping her. With everything happening so fast, her mother became more and more depressed and she died shortly afterwards because she took too many pills to calm her down, without even knowing it was killing her from pill after pill. Kenisha felt so bad and ended up living with her father and new girlfriend, but she did nopt appreciate what her father did to her and her mother so she decided to stay with her half-sister and grandmother. She also met this nice and smart boy named Terrence Butler and she finally believed that her life is perfect and a wake- up call for her because she thought everything was about her, when there were other people, especially in her family that needed help too. She became very helpful and she was not selfish anymore. This book was great and i wanted it to continue, but i loved it.
