Description: It’s official: South Bay High’s finest, Jayd Jackson, and its coolest white boy, Jeremy Weiner, are a couple. And if that’s not enough interracial drama for South Bay’s mostly white, wealthy student body, Jayd and her bold, beautiful, black renaissance crew have more on the way?.
Friends and teachers at South Bay High may be hating, but Jayd and Jeremy are falling in love, and if anyone has a problem with their happiness, especially an ex who’s back in Jayd’s life aiming to sweep her off her feet, well, that’s no surprise. This is Drama High after all. And Jayd is no stranger to controversy? it’s in her blood, and it seems it’s in her girl Nellie’s blood too.
All Jayd Jackson wants is a drama-free year at South Bay High, a.k.a. Drama High. But it doesn’t seem she’s going to get it. It’s only the second week of Junior year and already, Misty, her nemesis, has almost gotten her killed after instigating a fight between Jayd and KJ’s girlfriend, Trecee. But it goes with the territory. She’s a fire child, and granddaughter to Lynne Mae Williams’ Mama’s and Mama says that means the drama will follow Jayd wherever she goes. Even so, Jayd just wants to chill, still hoping Junior year can carry on, drama-free. And with Misty and KJ reportedly hanging, Jayd is ready to move on. But the brother won’t stop blowing up Jayd’s cellie, and the text-messages keep coming; and the message is clear: KJ wants Jayd back bad. But Jayd couldn’t care less. She’s got a new man to kick-it with now a half-Jewish white boy from Palos Verdes whose parents are loaded with a capital. And Jeremy Weiner’s no ordinary white boy he listens to East Coast rap, he’s got a sweet ride, and he’s got it bad for Jayd Jackson. But no one at South Bay High will just let a sistah be happy. Misty’s back to her usual foolishness, KJ’s all over her jock, and the notoriously anti-black teacher Mrs. Bennett is tripping. Jeremy’s got her totally sprung, but she’s going to have to rely on her brains and some of Mama’s magic, of course if she’s going to survive another week at Drama High. (234 pgs) Young Adult
