Book Review by Deztanee Crawford
Tashera Odom is seventeen years old . She goes to Marion Barry High school. She got along with everyone. She also braids hair on the side to pay for college. Tashera lives in a rough neighborhood that two rival gangs stay. Which her brother is a member of the Deuce Tres. One day, Tashera was walking home from the store and a car pulled up. A group of girls got out and surrounded Tashera. They jumped her and beat her so bad that the doctor said she might be able to have children when she got older. Tashera didn't know the girls at all. Luckily, Ashe Thurgood, a paramedic was near by and took her to the hospital. While she is in the hospital she finds out that the girls jumped her because Tashera dates Jessica's ex boyfriend.
I can relate to Tashera because I got bullied when i was in elementary school. They messed with me for no reason at all. I never did anything to them. I really liked this book because there was never a dull moment. My least favorite part was when one of the girls overdosed. I also would change instead of one girl getting punished all of them should. I recommend this book to teenagers. This book is a very good book and has alot of action in it.
