South Bay High’s Jayd Jackson finally has her own ride, but that sure doesn’t mean her troubles are over...

These days, Jayd just can’t seem to get a break. Her car is more trouble than it’s worth; her girl Mickey is being forced to attend continuation school; and Rah and his ex Sandy are still arguing.

Despite these distractions, Jayd concentrates on making potions for hair and developing her own signature braid technique, which is getting her a lot of respect and money. But then school starts up

The holidays are coming closer and Jayd has her new car. It's not a Cadillac but it is good enough for her. Meanwhile, Mickey is having some baby drama and Jayd is trying her hardest to stay out of it. Sandy, Rah's baby mama is being as nasty as she can toward Jayd cause she is always with Rah, and Rahmina.
I can make a text to world connection. There are a lot of teenage pregnancies, and when Tre, Rah, and Nigel get into a gun fight Jayd is really ticked off, Nigel gets shot in the arm and is

I thought it was a very interesting book. Especially the beginning of the story. The part where they were at dinner was the most intense part for me. Because Mama was meeting her daughters (Jayd's mom) boyfriend for the first time. Jayd had brought over her white friend for mama to meet. Then all of a sudden, things get serious when Mama is held at hostage. That was probably my favorite part of the book.

I think it could have been more intenser throughout the book, just instead of bits and

Dear Ms. L.Divine,
I love the book keep it movin’. Jayd Jackson and I are just alike. I love her spunky attitude. Drama high series is like the best series I know. Ive been reading this series since the ending of 7th grade. One thing I also like is that is that I can relate. I also like that the characters are like real people. Another thing I like is that the mother can communicate with jayd using telepathy. My mom and I cant do that but she can easily finish my sentences. Keep writing!

Excellent book. It always reminds you that you can move on, ignore the haters live life and always get your grind on. I love reading this series, a lot more books to go. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a very good humor, romance, spells, power all in once. It also includes some Yoruba which I enjoy a lot. Mama and Jayd have a very strong relationship. When a girl has guys to choose from, she takes a very big and stron choice and chooses the right man. A broken old car can only take ...more

Ms. L.Divine has done it again, another great book for the Drama High Series. This book really showed the turning point of Jayed's (main character)life just becoming complicated. This book makes me want to read the whole series and more books by L.Divine.

Jayd's making money from braiding hair and we all know about the crazy car her father got. What's up with that? Dealing with Rah's drama is just too much. Sandy is crazy and needs to let him take care of that poor baby. It was an over all great read. Love L. Divine.

All kinds of new drama without a happy ending. A crappy car that is a sad attempt at a present. Jayd and Rah. Jayd and Jeremy. Lots of shopping and baby clothes.
