Overview

Back for another dose of high drama, Compton's sassiest, Jayd Jackson, is about to discover it really is a different world when she starts dating South Bay High's finest white boy . . .
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-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 "L." 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.

L. Divine is at the top of her game in this superb follow-up to the power-packed Drama High: TheFight. Look for the next juicy installment, Jayd's Legacy, coming soon.

    Drama High: Second Chance

    Second Chance is the second book from the Drama High series. This book is a really great read and things happen that you wouldn't even expect and also the reader gets to see Jade test the waters. This book is a must read.

    Best Book I Ever Read

    This was actual the first novel that i had ever read before i read this book i hated to read ....then last summer my mom brought me a book from the public library and it was this one. Once i read the first chapter i couldn't put the book down now i love reading new books of any kind and since i have been reading i have gotten better grades too. Any mom that needs to get her teen daughter to read i recommend this book and the True Color Series by Melody Carlson.<BR/>But if she is a African American teen girl she would LOVE this book and it's series and she might also love the Bluford series

    Wonderful African American Series

    First off I wanted to say that this series is one of the series that I really enjoy reading. It is a kind of series that I can relate to in a way. I enjoy L. Divine series. I wish that she could write another book or series. i would enjoy reading some more of her work. I didn't start from the first book but I caught on as I read some more. I can' t wait for the new book Hustlin' to come out. I reccomend this book to teens. Its a peice of work. I hope there are more books to come. Thank you L.Divine you are a wonderful gifted writer.

    good book

    Dear L.Divine, Your books are good. I learn that at the end of all your books that all of the drama happens and that in the middle it not alot of stuff going on. Why is that?

    Outstanding

    Even though I'm not finished with this book, I find it highly entertaining and readable. I love the wacky character's that L. Divine created in this book, especially the smart, savvy Jayd Jackson who doesn't let anything stand in her way. As a young african american girl myself, I love how Jayde defends herself and learns without making sacrifices that could destroy her or her family's legacy. Afterall, her last name is Jackson. If you want to read a great book, i reccomend you to this book. I was able to relate with the characters, and I'm sure you will too.
