Allison, Kawalec.
i chose to read this book because i read the last to books of the series.
This book is about a girl named jay'd who goes to a high school filled with drama and problem starters . And, since shes datting a white boy with a bad rep that makes ppl even more interested in her buiness but on top of that shes trying to managage her best friend nilies homecoming princess campain even though she knows it wont be easy . and, even though she tries to prepare nielle for what may and is most likely to happen
in the book "Jayd's Legacy" jayd has it both ways. She has her boyfriend jeremy who she thinks she loves very much. just when everything was going so well raheem comes back into jayd's life. raheem was jayd's first kiss, first love, first everything. jayd still feels something for raheem but of course she doesn't tell jeremy.
She has to chose which one she wants. if she doesn't she'll just be playing both of them. you can't have it best of both worlds. choosing may seem very easy but it's not.

Jayd's Legacy by L. Divine was an interesting book because the main character Jayd discovers her destiny. When her grandmother explains Jayd's legacy to her she finally understands why weird things happen to her, like how her mother always knew what she was thinking. Jayd attends South Bay High School, where drama is thrown left and right to her and her friends. Although it is pretty stressful, they get through it together and have each others backs. Amongst all the drama Jayd is falling in love ...more

This book is basically about an High School homecoming which South Bay has never had a black princess or queen for any event. Based on this story you would read about a young girl named Jayd and Nellie going against each other for the crown. This story i could relate towards it because many people in high school are willing to compete for the crown in homecoming of prom.

I thought this book was very good and what happens between Jay'd Jeremy and Rah wow what she does like really Jay'd but this is still a good book. Between Nellie Mickey and Nigel Drama!

The purpose of the author writing this book was to give the audience a good drama to read. It is something that could happen to anyone; mostly teens. For example, Jayd not being able to hang around Raheem because it will bring up old feelings. That is an everyday event for teens nowadays. Also how Jayd was helping her friend Nellie with the homecoming campaign and all the beef that is included between competing campaigns. But this book is not a book that will have a lasting value to it. It is ...more

I have not quite grasp this book when i read it the first time.It was during the summer and it was my last book to read.Now that I am reading it again i do get it.Mostly its all about drama in Jayd's life,dealing with one of her best friend's campaign of becoming homecoming princess,balancing an ex-boyfriend when balancing a new boyfriend and her family's history of majic and spirits,but not the voodoo type.

Jayd recently has been going to her ex-boyfriend's house(I know,its ridiculous) vibing

In this lovely book by L. Divine, Jayd finds herself in many situations. In the book Jayd's Legacy (Drama High #3) Jayd Jackson finds herself one of the luckiest girl in the world, she's dating the it's coolest white boy Jeremy Weiner while attending South Bay High. South Bay High may be a little against that decision but that won't stop the drama that's about to stir up while reading this book. Jayd's Legacy would leave you wondering what would happened and at the edge of your seat. L. Divine ...more

Still loving Jade. I thought this was the last book in the series, but there is more! This one features homecoming and Jayd's problem with her boyfriend who doesn't want to take her because of some old family rivalry. She also gets a blast from the past when Nigel comes to her school who was best friends with her old boyfriend rah who still makes her swoon. Inner Conflict! Prom! Hurray! Hurrah!

Drama High: Jayd's Legacy is a very great book! This book is full of hate, drama,friends,and family! This is one book I definitely recommend.

Her friend Jayd is worried about her because Nellie is so worried about the crown, that she's not worried about the people on her every move. Because people want those crowns and want to

Love it. I can't stop reading it whatsover. Once I finish, I read it again. L.Divine keeps teens like myself on the edge of our seats, and wanting more with ever page. Miss. Divine is a master storyteller. This novel like the first two in tehr series i have read were on point. Although I do get a bit disgruntled at the hazing subject matter but overall a lovely novel. I can't wait for the next book!

This Book Is Really Good. I Like The Way The Book Keeps Getting Better and Better. This Book Makes You Want To Keep Reading Until It Is Finished And You Found Out What Happened To The Main Character Jayd. Jayd As The Main Character Helped Me To Relate To The Book Because I am Also A Teen Who Goes Through A lot of Things Just Like Jayd. Every Teen Girl Should Read It.

The book was about how Jayd was trying to help her friend Nellie win the homecoming crown.But she also had to deal with her own problems like her new boyfriend Jeremy. Right when she thinks problems can't get worse her ex-boyfriend steps back into her life. I gave this book a 4 star rating because it is so life like it tells and says everything that a normal things that would happen to girls.

This book kept me wanting more.I couldn't stop reading it I finished it in 3 days!I was on the edge of my seat...the Drama was never ending. This book really shows you what teens have to go through and how they have to deal with family, and school. good[besides the supernatural stuff]. The quotes before every chapter really was relateable to the story line.

Jayd Legacy is about How Jayd and Jeremey is a couple and nobody is

trying to break them apart. Jayd ex- boyfriend is trying to get her

back but Jayd don't need to be caught with him she has Jeremey and

thats all she needs. I would rate this book a five because it talks

how a person is in love with someone and that they would never go

back to their ex's.

This book is about how Jayd is having a good school year so far until her ex is trying to contact her and her bestfriend is running for princess which nothing is wrong with that until she gets a big head and starts to think everything is about her.This book was really good and had a lot of drama.

This book is about when homecoming is coming up and The Drama Club is sponsoring Nellie to run for the junior class homecoming princess,hoping to give the Cheerleaders and Athletes a run for their money.
Have not read this myself yet, but I'm impressed that so many actual kids (as opposed to well meaning teachers, librarians etc.) have written such thoughtful and enthusiastic reviews. Definitely earns a place on my "FUN Books for African American Kids" list!

I really happy that this young girl in this book knows where she comes from. As humans most of us tend to forget where we come from and the sacrifices made to be where we are today. she is so lucky to have a grandmother like she does. And such a great book also
