School’s out and sixteen year-old Kennedy Simms is bored. That could be a recipe for disaster. . .Good girls don’t go to real parties, like the ones in the hood. Or rock bangin’ clothes. Or stay out as long as they want. But I’m sick of my parents’ rules and being the perfect little boring suburban princess. It’s my life, right? I’ve decided to have some fun for a change, hitting the streets with my new bestie, Sasha. Best of all, my new gangsta-fine boo, Malik, knows how to treat me right, spoils me like I deserve, and is someone I can finally call my own. Sure, living the life and being with Malik is getting me into mad-crazy trouble. And if I don’t tell the truth about him, I could go to prison. But a good ride-or-die girl never snitches. And as long as my friends and my man stick by me, nothing can go wrong, right? “A drama-filled cautionary tale about getting in too deep.” –Publishers Weekly on Crazy Love”Abrams again tantalizes us, getting into the mind-set of the young, gifted and beautiful.” –RT Book Reviews on The Girl of His Dreams

Editorial Reviews: From School Library Journal Gr 10 Up—Teens looking to read about romance, sex, drug use, and urban drama will find it in the story of 16-year-old Kennedy Simms, a suburban girl who longs for the excitement of life in the ‘hood. She’s attracted to boys who wear sagging jeans and smell of marijuana smoke—boys her more conservative friends disapprovingly call “thugs” and “hoodlums.” But Kennedy’s bored with dating the nerds her parents and friends like; she’s determined to break out of her safe world in a gated community and experience life. Soon, she is defying her mother, staying out all night, drinking, partying, and generally making poor decisions. She meets Blaze, who seems like bad news, though he might have a warm heart beneath his tough exterior. However, Kennedy falls for Malik, who thrills and romances her. She ignores all of the warning signs, choosing Malik over her friends when they try to warn her against him. It takes a catastrophic event and serious consequences to help Kennedy see the error of her ways, though by then it may be too late. While most of the characters are shallow and stereotypical, and the slang-filled dialogue can be a challenge to read, Kennedy is an appealing protagonist and the fast-paced story will keep teens glued to the page. Fans of YA street lit authors, such as Ni-Ni Simone and L. Divine will enjoy this, and despite the mature content, it’s more suitable for the majority of high school libraries than adult titles in this genre.—Miranda Doyle, Lake Oswego School District, OR About the Author Amir Abrams is a regular dude with a dream.
