The book that I have read is a novel called Drama High: Lady J by L. Divine. This novel is a fiction story. The main theme of this story is to help others when they ask for your help, how to try to keep away from drama and also how to solve them.
Drama High: Lady J is based on a teenager named Jayd. She has a lot of drama going on in her life. Most of her drama is at school. But she would always have her friends there to back her up when ever she gets her self in to trouble. There names are

Tania is pregnant with Jeremy's child. Tania comes out of nowhere and asks Jeremy if he missed her. Mickey gets sick of Tania and throws her drink at Tania and it splashes all over her chest. Tania calls Mickey a hoochie and Mickey attacks Tania.

The book reminds me of the time when my friend got in a fight with this girl in my school over her constant gossiping. She got sick of it and started jumping her. This book made me realize true friends will stick up for

Dear Diary,

My friends are the ones I really love right now. They help me whenever I need something. Sometimes we get into things but they

Reading this book was easy to relate to. As I continue to read the book, I realize it was a series of these and I was caught in the middle part of the book. However, the plot was basically a typical high school girl who is having boy trouble and the normal girl drama. This book was easy to relate to because the book touches on most problems that a teenage girl goes through in their high school years. The only thing I didn’t relate to in the book was her spiritual side in the book. The main ...more

Lady J is about Jayd, who has drama every day. She breaks up with her boyfriend Jeremy but he tries to get back with her. However, shes moved on. Her neighbor Esmeralda is like a witch with her blue eyes. In fact she puts a curse on Jayd, she gets headaches every day. Girls are jealous of her because boys like her. She also gets into fights with them.

During reading this book, I made a text-to-world connection. Many girls like Jayd get in big fights with other girls because some are jealous of
in the book "Lady J" Jayd has to learn how to live with the bad influence some people have towards her. there is a woman named, Esmeralda,and she wants to make Jayd's life a living hell. She put this spell on Jayd and now she keeps havng these painful headaches.
we can't let anyone have that power to make our life miserable. if you don't like me than oh well. we have to take a bigger step than them and leave them behind in the dust and let them know that they ain't shit to us.

Jayd just got realer. This queen is hairy! Hooray. Lead us Jayd into the world of strong women. So Book 5. Jayd has to deal with residual Jeremy issues, and now Rah, who has a girlfriend but is dating Jayd on the side. She still hasn't given up her cookies. But now the drama at her school revolves around everyone finding out about her legacy and calling her a witch. She made the mistake of trying to help Misty break out of Mama's enemy neighbor, Esmerelda's spell. She made a charm bag and ...more

Jayd is back. Drama is even worse now that mamas worst enemy is here.. Esmerelda. Can mama and Jayd have enough powers from their ancestors to survive this challenge?
In this book I can make a text to text connection. In frenemies, Jayd is apparently Jeremy's "charity" case. In this book when they are broken up he seems to treat her with more respect and listen to her more often.
I gave this bok 5 stars. L. Divine is a wonderful author, i'm glad that she can write about this wonderful girl

This was a very good book to read because it was expressed in a unique way. I enjoyed reading this book. This was about a girl named Jayd, but her friends and family call her Lady J. This book is about "Lady J" trying to overcome a mission and to succeed in life. She is a college student and faces many obstacles during the time, but in the end she overcomes it. This was a very good book and very detailed.

This book was about Jayd and how Jeremy was trying to get back with her. It also was about how Raheem he ex-boyfriend was having troubles and she made him a gris-gris. But Misty her enemy was having problems to and she made her a gris-gris but she found it and made everyone think she was a witch.

Loved it. Jayd just trying to do her and stay drama free from everyone. But you know that the drama has a way of crash landing in front of her. Dealing with Esmeralda, Misty, her frinds and family can never be drama free.

Lady J is about how Jayd broke up with her boyfriend jeremey and found

out that Drama is never going to leave her life. I would rate this

book a five because it talks about how Drama is always going to be

there in a person life.

I would never allow my child to read this ghetto book. Not one bit of proper English in it. Poorly written.
