Sheryl Mallory-Johnson's debut YA novel, "L.A. Summer: Friends 'Til The Bloodend" sizzles with teen drama. From the moment I was introduced to her three sassy characters, Mikki, Stacey, and Carlette, I was immediately drawn into their world-- the exciting, yet precarious streets of Los Angeles. With Mikki returning to her hometown of L.A. since moving away with her family to Boone, Texas, this sheltered country girl is looking for love and excitement. And she finds it alright. But in the one boy that her best friend Stacey can't stand. While Mikki is stoked about spending time with the boy of her dreams inspite of Stacey's dissapproval, Stacey must face her own challenges--summer school! If she doesn't pass Algebra, poor Stacey is doomed! And then there's Stacey's new best friend, who lives in Mikki's old house, Carlette--Carlette is one sassy little momma. Carlette thinks she's grown enough to kick it with a man nearly twice her age 'cause she's got a body like a woman. But is Carlette really ready to be a woman, or will she find herself in way over her head? The plot thickens as the three girls go through a transformation of their lives and eventually come of age during one hot summer in L.A. Sheryl Mallory-Johnson does an exceptional job of capturing the heart and voice of today's teen. Edgy, funny, and real.

This book is a great book; it depicts the continuity of relationships among friends. I can really see myself through these characters in this book. As an adult with teenagers I do not see this type of friendship which is revealed in this book. My views of relationships among friends differ with my teens. I do not see long lasting relationships with this generation. Relationships are important whether with friends, parents, teachers, coaches, doctors, cousins, fathers, mothers, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, mother-in-laws, father-in-laws and etc. As a human race, we are all related in our relation as human beings and I ask the readers to ask your-selves this question? Who are you being in your relationships and how can we all create a possibility of relating to others in this great society. How can we continue to create a possibility of healthy relationships with others and with people who are important to us?

This book is a great read for teenage girls. The story is very easy to relate to and very well written. I could definitely visualize the story line. The book very accurately depicts the summer of three teenage girls in Los Angeles and how they cope with daily situations and obstacles.

I related so much to this book because I can feel these girls pain, happiness, and other different emotions they went through with different dilemmas like sex, boys, and gossip in the story, but which is also relevant in a girls everyday life. I think its a great read for teenage girls because it gives you example on how to handle different situations and how important friendship is. I can't wait for the next series!
