    Imani in Young Love and Deception: A Contemporarory Young Adult Novel

    The issues in this novel were surprisingly happening as I was reading. Normally, I don't read books of this nature because I never relate to them. I'm not sexually active and they usually focus mainly on sexual activities. I recommend this book for any age group, but especially for high school students. It kept my attention from the beginning to the end! I personally would like to thank Ms. Hardrick for providing this information to teenagers. Thanks!

    Terrific and Fantastic!

    Jackie Hardrick is a terrific and fantastic writer. I admire her work, i have read 2 of her books and i can't stop reading them. At first i hated reading, i thought that i was the worst reader you could ever know. i didn't speak any English at all when i first came in this country, and it was hard for me to fit in with others. Then around the Summer of 2003, my best friend introduced to me one of her books called 'Imani in Young Love & Deception', i got to be honest, the first thing that came up in my mind when my friend gave this book, was you expect to read this book? i told my friend that this book sound boring already. when i read the first chapter, OMG, i didn't want to stop reading , i wanted to continue reading the book the whole day. i loved it and i told my friend that, i got read more books by her.i read the book over and over and i recommended the book to my family and other friends, it seems like everyone who have read the book say the same thing that i say, they want to keep on reading the book. now iam buying extra copies of this book to send to my brothers and sisters who are in Uganda, so that they can read it, and iam sure they are going to love it like i did. Her books inspire me to read alot and that's why i read, because her books are very realistic and touching.

    Loved It!

    I loved Imani in Young Love & Deception and so I am ecstatic to now hear of yet another novel involving Imani. This novel was such a great depiction of a young girl at that age and the real thoughts and emotions young girls feel. So I am very sure that I will love Imani in Never Say Goodbye! It will definitely make a great Christmas gift to myself and others.

    I've Read both books

    I loved both of the books by Jackie Hardrick. In my opinion, they are very good books for young black teenage girls. I hope that she comes out with more sequels because I read both books more than once and all in a day!!

    Very Inspiring

    I felt that the book was very inspiring and that it's good for young teens to read. Also, it will help change teens lives in many ways. I can't wait to read the second book Imani in Never Say Goodbye.
