Overview

If only there was a potion to make all Jayd Jackson’s troubles disappear…



Even though Jayd’s finished with the AP exams and finally has some space of her own at her mother’s house, she’s got to deal with the drama all around her. Mickey blames Jayd for her ruined baby shower; Rah, her ex, is bristling over her renewed relationship with beach boy Jeremy; and her #1 frenemy, Misty, is hard at work conjuring trouble. With so much going on, it’s hard for Jayd to concentrate on her spirit lessons and hair braiding business. But Jayd’s determined to push back and claim some peace for herself, ’cause focusing on the gift from her ancestors could hold the key to bringing the chaos under control for good…

Whoop-Whoop, another WINNER y'all!;) Okay so this is the latest Drama High book. I just finished it ans it only took two days to finish! I was literally on the edge of my seat with this one! I'm not gonna say too much because you might not have read this book yet and I don't wanna spill the beans! ;) I do recommend this book to anyone looking for some good drama, romance, relationship, etc.! I cannot wait for the next Drama High book! L. Divine is a fabulous author! I have to give her my props on that! She makes the characters so real in this book.

I hadn't read the other books before it but that didn't make much difference. It was a fast-paced read and was pretty dramatic and funny to read. The plot was a tad scattered and hard to follow, but overall it was okay book.

I received an ARC copy of this book a couple months ago. I did enjoy the book overall but I felt that there were too many different story-lines going on at one time. I found that the addition of Jayd being a Voodoo princess was too much for me and I would have rather just focused on her high school life and friendships. I found a few other things difficult to swallow such as her guidance counselor telling her that unless she got into cheer leading, she would not be able to get into a good college. I felt that this sent the wrong message to some readers because Jayd is involved in several other student activities such as the school play and the president of another club. In addition she is also working two jobs out side of school. I felt that this book did show how teens can be overloaded but it didn't not really show the fallout that comes with that kind of pressure. I can see the appeal of these books and I was glad that I was given a chance to review it but I cannot say that I would read any more in the series.

Drama High: Pushin¿ is a fast paced look at Jayd Jackson¿s life. Jayd is seventeen and a junior in high school. She is involved with clubs, plays, cheerleading, and takes advanced courses at school. She works two jobs after school and is the descendent of a voodoo priestess. This girl is quite busy, but explains that she wants to get ahead in life and sees hard work as the way. Like many high school students she has friend drama, which at times can be a bit much. This book would appeal to young adult readers because they would relate to the students of Drama High on many levels. This book also includes enough of the next book in the series to persuade readers to find the next book.

Jayd has enough on her plate between her school activities, work, and her family responsibilities but the drama keeps coming. Having never read any of the Drama High books before, I found the character list in the front helpful in learning the characters, and keeping them straight at the beginning. This book was a great, quick read and I now need to go back and start at the beginning of the series. I think this series would be a great addition to any YA collection lacking urban fiction.

Jayd's latest installment isn't short on drama. L. Divine delivers another fast paced read. Previous knowledge of the series wouldn't hurt, but is not necessary. Teens should enjoy.

I receieved this book through the Early Reviewers program. I just finished it and I'm not really sure what to say. There is A LOT going on in this book...Lots of drama obviously. I can see how young people would enjoy the story but as an adult, it just gave me a headache...Jayd has plenty of drama at school along with the pressure to get into a good college. And if that isn't enough she's juggling two boyfriends, a child, work, and a spiritual practice. Is that really what the life of most young adults is like these days? I'm only 28 and I dont' remember life being nearly that complicated when I was in high school....Jayd is an admirable character and she handles all of these things well for someone her age. However, the whole thing was just too over-the-top for me.

Jayd never goes anywhere. In every book its the same story over and over. I enjoyed it in middle school but I'm in college now and I see that this story has still gotten no where.
