by that She spends most of the story being disgusted with Naleejah, but she can t quite extricate herself from the friendship, because she keeps accepting Naleejah s offers to do her hair and let her borrow better clothes Especially on days when she expects to see a certain guy.So here s my question I found the story to be a little didactic, but do I just need to get over that I love YA books that are ambivalent about truth, that don t honor the authority of adults, and that raisequestions than they answer But if an author sets out to write something between a cautionary tale and an inspirational story, should I evaluate the book on the basis of how well the author succeeds If I were to do that, I would still say that Sharon Flake does it better But Dream Jordan does it well And I think her next book might be even better, because this one got better as it went along The one thing I hope for Dream Jordan s next book a little less internal monologue I feel like the author isn t so much creating a character as writing a script for her readers this is how you can respond positively to all the pressures around you The reader doesn t need to know every thought that flits through Kate s head I wasn t impressed I actually expected some sex and a littlepimping instead it s actually a mild mannered story of a girl, Kate who would loved to be called Diamond around her way who has been bounced from foster to foster family and now must deal with her best friend s absence when she becomes friends with a new girl Najeelah who turns Kate back into the girl she doesn t want to become But, Kate gets a grip sooner than later and finds herself again knowing that she s not sleeping I wasn t impressed I actually expected some sex and a littlepimping instead it s actually a mild

boy of her dreams because he s just got some from her supposed friend among other bad girls habits she had back in the day.The cover will attract the girls and much of the conversation and attitude of the characters will keep them there so for a school library I m happy that it s rated PG 13 This book is really good When you read it you feel like Kate is talking to you She tells you her emotions and how she thinks She struggles with self love because she s tired of her tom boy image and everyone seeing her that way especially her crush While she struggles with her insecurities she has a crush on her homeboy but so does the pretty girl she hates. 3.5 Stars The book was a good read It teaches that you need to be yourself and believe in yourself Looking at someone on the outside, they may look like that have it all together but there are a few pieces missing I would definitely recommend this to younger girls. It was good, but took me a while to read because I would get kind of bored of it. This small novel written for teenagers will change how you pick your friends.The story is mainly about a girl named Kate and how she spent a summer learning many lessons Kate was no ordinary girl She was very smart but that summer she really wasn t using her brain Naleeja came and erupted Kate s world, but their friendship couldn t last Naleeja or should I say Bertha, was too different and didn t know how to be a friend Charles, on the other hand was Kate s long time crush She trusted h This small novel written for teenagers will change how you pick your friends.The story is mainly about a girl named Kate and how she spent a summer learning many lessons Kate was no ordinary girl She was very smart but that summer she really wasn t using her brain Naleeja came and erupted Kate s world, but their friendship couldn t last Naleeja or should I say Bertha, was too different and didn t know how to be a friend Charles, on the other hand was Kate s long time crush She trusted him but he betrayed her in ways you could not believe Kate s foster father, Ted, was nice to her and always talked to her about anything On the other hand Lynn was a massive pain in the butt She got on Kate s case about anything and everything In the Johnson foster home, Kate only finally find her true self This book caught my attention very quickly It reminded me of high school girls I like the fact that Kate made mistakes because her mistakes only made her stronger and it was easier for me to relate to her She really learned how to keep most thoughts to herself and that she was grateful for the things she received I don t think that someone can buy forgiveness.You should never judge a person, but Naleeja made it easy for others to judge her Naleeja does things to have other females talk about her Her attitude, choice of clothing, and her confendence, rather, her arrogance I disapprove of the ways she uses her body to get what she wanted and tried to get Kate to do the same The book has a lot of drama, but it is easy for younger females to relate to and understand what is going on.A self to text connection I had with the book was when Kate watched Charles play basketball and she got really into it Kate yelled, Yo, Charlie what are you waiting for Don t hold the ball Dunk it like a doughnut, Jordan 2 I get that way sometimes when I m reading a book Kate wanted Charlie to dunk the ball in the hoop right away so the team can score When I m reading, I get to the point where I want the author to hurry up and get to the good part.The book also reminded me of a lot of females in high school When it comes to a girl flirting with a boy and one of his friends comes walking up asking what s the holdup, their reaction is just like Kate s, Hmm, I thought angrily, wasn t the holdup obvious, Jordan 17 I see girls flirting with boys all the time, but when their friends come and inturrupt them seem to get irritated.The most common thing you will hear from teenagers is I got ninety nine problems and a boy is not one Correction a boy is the ninety nine problems, but that wasn t Kate s problem Kate said to Naleeja I got ninety nine problems and my home girl Felicia has never been one, Jordan 27 Felicia always had good advice for Kate and never had problems the way Kate s relationship was with Naleeja The book seemed as if it was written to connect with a teenager s life Dream Jordan did a marvelous job at writing the book I give the book to thumbs up and 5 golden stars Jordan s purpose in writing her book, Hot Girl, is to show young girls that you should be yourself and not let anyone try to change you The problems you face only make you stronger People can overcome anything if you put your mind to it It also teaches us to be careful of who we put our trust into, because not everyone is loyal People will sometimes try to influence you in the wrong way and it gets you into trouble But it helps readers understand that someone shouldn t change themselves for Jordan s purpose in writing her book, Hot Girl, is to show young girls that you should be yourself and not let anyone try to change you The problems you face only make you stronger People can overcome anything if you put your mind to it It also teaches us to be careful of who we put our trust into, because not everyone is loyal People will sometimes try to influence you in the wrong way and it gets you into trouble But it helps readers understand that someone shouldn t change themselves for anyone They re perfect the way they are This book has a good impact on its readers The reader learns that you struggle in life for a reason and that eventually they ll get past it with the right help along the way If someone is surrounding themselves with good people then mostly likely they won t get into trouble and pick up good habits By the end of the book it teaches the reader to strive to be better and not change for anyone If you have to change for people then they re probably not worth the trouble It leaves us believing in ourselfs and wanting to do what s right for us.Hot Girl is well written, but it does reference some slang words used by young people It s an easy read that you can pretty much breeze your way through Of course it s a higher level of reading, but it s not meant to be difficult to understand As the main character, Kate, described one of the girls she say walking by, she said she had on fizzy fly clothes I mean I felt flattered by her attention, but I was still confused Jordan 7 The author uses very descriptive words throughout the book The reader isn t left wondering what a certain character looks like because they re always described in detail The author makes sure what ever is happing is clear to the reader.This was a very captivating book because although it s an easy reader, you always want to know what might happen next The main character gets herself in tricky situations throughout the story and has to get herself out of them The reader wonders what choice someone is about to make, or who might pop up next I could relate to the main character Kate because she knows who she is but she lost touch with herself for a little while Some times people try to influence you too much and basically make you think something was wrong with you which isn t the case at all Jordan 213 This was a dramatic book with various funny moments But it s very relatable.The greatest strength of this book was that it s relatable and everyone has problems with the people they surround themselves with The greatest weekness of the book is that it seems like it only appeals to a particular audience because of the content I would recommend this book to a friend because it teaches a life lesson about friendship and making the right decisions for yourself The main character goes through a lot but when she finally relizes who her true friends are, she knows this is how friendship should feel from now on Jordan 214 It s not about who does the most for you, it s about who s always there for you no matter what Which is something to always keep in mind when we think about our friends ^Free Epub ☘ Hot Girl ☛ It s summertime in Bed Stuy Do or
