Fifteen-year-old Verna LaVaughn's life is turned upside-down when Jody, a childhood friend, returns to her housing project and rekindles their old relationship, but Verna may be feeling more emotions for Jody than he is for her. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.

& Taylor

Living in the inner city amidst guns and poverty, fifteen-year-old LaVaughn learns from old and new friends, and inspiring mentors, that life is what you make it--an occasion to rise to.

Simon and Schuster
LaVaughn is fifteen now, and she's still fiercely determined to go to college. But that's the only thing she's sure about. Loyalty to her father bubbles up as her mother grows closer to a new man. The two girls she used to do everything with have chosen a path LaVaughn wants no part of. And then there's Jody. LaVaughn can't believe how gorgeous he is...or how confusing. He acts like he's in love with her, but is he?

I recomend this book for middle schoolers mostly! Definitely a tween to younger teen book. Its got a cute story and of course a good ending. :)

Meh, it was an ok, boring book. There were a lot of predictable moments in here.
