South Bay High wouldn't be such a bad place to go to school if it weren't for all the drama. Not that Jayd Jackson's helping matters. She's right there in the center of it all--whether she wants to be or not. Maybe it just goes with the turf. After all, there's a reason they call this place Drama High. . .

Jayd doesn't know what's going on with her girl, Nellie. Ever since

When I finished this book last saturday,I was satisfied but expected something more at the end.What happened in the end was not a suprise to me.Jayd made the right decision.Read closely and analyze this book as you read it.

When I was reading this book,I studied Jayd's character.The way she acted to certain situatons,is the same way I would have reacted.She talked the talked and walked the walk.When the author created Jayd,she created a real life character.

**I have a frenemy. I’m struggling with having her in my life and she's not going away, so I read books about how other people might handle this. Watch for a few books titled Frenemies, because I'm reading them all. **

I quite enjoy my teen novels (The Clique, Vampire Diaries, etc) but the main character was so judgmental of her friends, yet was supposed to be a sympathetic character that I was reminded of the frenemy I'm trying to solve.

I can’t handle Ebonics when I hear it, so having to read

Then another stars to hang out with someone they don't like so then they stop talking to each other. Then Jayd starts to try to bring they back together.

I can connect to this to myself. It's because I used to disagree with my friends and not talked to them. I can be in the same place as Jayd and her friends. I can

Jayd is back with her girls-girl? Ever since Nellie won homecoming she has been acting all snooty booty. And are Jeremy and Jayd good forever?
I can make a text to world connection. When I was in 5th grade, my best friend was bragging on abotu how she won something and then she stated hanging with the popular girls. And it really felt bad to me. Well it turns up, she got annoying and no one cared anymore so I became best friends with all the Popular girls :)
I rated this 5 stars. I love this

What iv'e learned from this amazing book Drama High:Frenemies is that when your to best friends are fighting and they say you have to pick one of their sides don't pick either side try to help them out becasue no one likes loosing some one important in thier life.That's what the main character Jayd Jackson finds out in the book is that it is better to have a friend then loose one.She and her friend Mickey had to let their other friend Nellie go becasue she betrayed them and she causes dram ...more

Ooh dis book got on my last nerve. All these little girls doin stuff out of jealousy. Thats my pet peeve, jealousy. Just shut up and if you don't notice you spending time being jealous of me when you looking a hot mess. No, thats not gonna work, I can tell why your jealous. Just stop wasting your breath/energy/time if your so "JEALOUS" AKA Admiring cuz u kno u think of that person every day --> admiring.

Jayd's still rockin. This episode is all about frenemies. And the decaying current relationship with her way chill white boyfriend from the hills. Her best friend tries to switch cliques to the popular kids because she won homecoming princess. They have to get her back! Also Jayd wants to have sports drinks with her old flame, but she totally broke his heart. She is continually harnassing the power of her lineage and trying to stay above the drama. This is why I love her.

Frenemies is about how Jayd bestfriend Nelli is acting funny and how

she think she is all that ever since she was hanging out with Tania

and her crew. Jeremy is having a attitude too and Jade is ready to get

rid of him and start to thinking about rah. I would this book as a five

because this is telling other readers how people can change once they

meet new people and once you know them from a long time.
