Description

A Compton girl travels from the hood to a high school full of wealthy white kids, in the first book in the irresistible series . . . Sixteen-year-old Jayd Jackson is no stranger to drive-by shootings or run-ins with the friendly neighborhood crackhead. Street-smart, book-smart, and life-smart, she's nobody's fool—least of all KJ's. He's the cutest basketball jock at South Bay High, a.k.a. Drama High—where Jayd and a bunch of other Compton kids get bussed to daily. Okay, Jayd admits she once fell hard for his player ways. But she's through with him and his games for good. She just wants to start her junior year drama-free. But wanting isn't getting. On Jayd's first day back to school, KJ's new girlfriend approaches her wanting to fight. Egged on by Jayd's ex-best-friend-turned-nemesis, Trecee wants to make Jayd understand that KJ is off limits—even if she has to clarify with her fists. With the fight set for Friday, Jayd is about to learn who's really got her back . . .
