Amazing book! I relate to this book in so many ways. Jayd is a very strong girl, who goes through many struggle because of her uniqness, but ends up overcomming them each time! I dislike Misty in this story. She needs to get beat up soon because she is getting on my nerves too. You should really read the book because it keeps you wanting to read more:)

OMG!! was Jeremy really cheating? All this drama and Jayd still had Keenen to talk to. Will this be a new love? I can't wait for the next installment. There wasn't nearly enough drama in this one but i hope there is in the next.

I was not fully satisfied with this book. I thought there could have been more interesting stuff happening to Jayd, but I feel there were so many loose ends with no sign of them being solved.

I love this series because I enjoyed reading this book. This author did a really good and excellent job to put out this book because it's always on point and it's funny series. In the beginning of this book, it was slow and steady at the same time but I like it. I do not believe in voodoo priestess or vampire but if I have a supernatural power then I would help people with their issues and my issue. Mickey should tell the truth to Nigel about the letter and her ex-man but she didn't. I think

A nice contemporary read for the young folks

Besides the bluford high series the drama high series Is another one of my faves. Jayd dealt with alot (like always). For her age She's mature besides the voodoo stuff and kissing boys (LOL). She would be a good young woman to look up to.
-Misty ghetto fab butt needs to grow up.
-Nellie should stop trying to be someone she's not or get kicked out the crew.
-Rah lucky to have Jayd as a friend there situation complicated too.
-Jeremy needs to grow up

There a series of books before this one.These books are about this girl name Jay'd who is in high school that have some type of spiritual powers that was past down from generation to generation.All the women in her family possess some type of power.With these power there come with a price to pay not only spiritual but with relationship.I recommend that teens that like spiritual and drama fill books to read this.The one thing that I dislike about was the spiritual powers that she had.

I love this series. allways pulls you into the scene. i do believe the authors message is that people shouldnt judge the voodoo religion so quickly bt contridicts herself when jade does the exact same thing to baptists! did nt agree at all with the way she portrayed that. overall i liked it. just nt as good as the earlier books

I think that this was very amazing! I feel like the details & everything were nearly perfect. I also feel as if the characters role coulde been shortened just a bit. But overall the book is an huge example of how people can ruin your life by one little thing or one small decision can change your whole life forever.

Completely Satisfied

Always strong and determined, Jayd Jackson, along with the help of her ancestors, is back and fierce as ever! The relationship and friendship drama never ends, and ALWAYS has me coming back feigning for more! L. Divine has yet to disappoint!

I was expecting more drama between the main characters Jeremey and Jayd. But instead, most of it was about her new found religion and Esmerelda. It was an ok read, but some of the other Drama High books were better.

Drama High, you are SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS. You're not Twilight. You're not Shiver. And that's okay. You're in a different league from those books.

Resurrected shapeshifter boyfriends?

Come on, now.

I liked how she always has a way to sole something. Ask her grandmother for the answers to her problem. Tells her friends the right way to do things. And the little drama going on
