It’s almost Valentine’s Day at South Bay High, but romance is the last thing on Jayd Jackson’s mind…
If Cupid had his way, love would be in the air at South Bay High. But even though Valentine’s Day is around the corner, no one’s having an easy time of it—especially not Jayd Jackson, who lost her mojo after her friend Tre’s shooting. Worn out by Tre’s death—and sick of the same old drama with Rah—Jayd’s suddenly ruining her clients’ hair and feeling alienated from her friends. And to make things

It was pretty good, except for the fact that I didn't know that this was the 9th book of the series (thinking it was the 1st) so it was a little confusing to me, but now I'll check out the 1st book of the series. Otherwise, it was pretty good, I would recommend it!

I thought this book was amazing. The plot of the story was so deep and interesting. It talked about how the girl had a different life than everyone else. How she her grandmother and mother was witches. How she had to go about different problems that she faced, and focus on her spells and school work. In the beginning of the story she had a relationship with a guy who had a child with baby mama drama. Towards the middle of the story she realized that she doesn't need a boy in her life right now ...more

This was the first book I read of this serie, but I understood a lot and I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of this serie! This brings culture in so many ways and especially since it includes some Yoruba which I understand. You can tell that Jayd honours her ancestors, respects her culture and family members, battles against her enemies and in the whole process, she never forgets who she is and never forgets to have fun even if it's just romance or figuring out her friend.

I think she pick the right person and thats Jeremy... He was by herside the whole time even when she threw up in the hall, and he said "I'm going take you home sweetie and im always gonna be by your side." He spent the night over her house, and he feed her ... Jeremy is the one for her, but Rah he's okay but he going back and forth with his baby mommaand that's to much for Jayd.

OMG What happened to Tre was crazy. Mickey's boyfriend or ex what ever he is to her is even crazier she needs to get slapped. But back to Jayd this was so sad and it hurt her the most. With Valentine's Day around the corner I who she's gonna spend it with friends, family, or a special somebody? It was a great read and i loved it.

I couldn't really get into this book. It's been a while, but I've read all of the other books before this one in this series & I enjoyed them. Looking back on it, I was really young.. And now that I've gotten older, I've read much more mature books and those seem to grasp my attention more. I would probably let my 12 year old sister read a series like this, & the whole heritage thing just seems like it takes over the whole book. Basically I just think I've outgrown it... It's still a ...more

All of L. Divines books are so good they have me trying to hurry her up (IN MY MID OF COURSE)to already get the next book written so I could read it. All of her books are dealing with different teenage lives and how they handle it. Even though they all have different lives they all come together in the end no matter what. I love her books

Recommended to Jamika by: Ms.Toth
What i have learned from this bok is that don't hope for the best on Valentines day and christmas becasue when you have an ex-boyfriend and and your previous one fighting over you and you have to pick which one you want to be with it's not an easy decision and becasue when one of the lie to you and you find out the other is still there to be with you i guess.

Holidaze was a good book that had lots of drama and mistery. I would suggest everyonne read this book. Jayd has become strong with in her powers and became a woman. Shes been threw a lot and had help from her freinds and family along the way.

I read this book and it was a really good book it was about how this girl named jayd was into this guy. Its about how she was in high school, she has two bestfriends, and she was ready to get out and start to do hair.
