To snitch or not to snitch? This is the question sixteen-year-old Seneca Allen can't seem to answer without trouble laying in the cut. What's a girl to do but get caught up when her male and female best friends date each other and one of them cheats right in front of her. No matter what she decides, her action or lack thereof will end up costing her a true friend. Also, being put on blast at school and labeled as a rat who's not to be trusted only adds to her growing drama. Although humiliated and depressed, Seneca sports her new tag like a true soldier to keep the actual snitch from being exposed. Just when she feels all the drama is finally squashed, she learns some horrible news that could devastate one of her best friends. Certain her days of dealing with snitching are over, she decides to keep what she knows on the low. But once Seneca's best friend finds out she withheld information, her loyalty comes into question. Will Seneca learn that sometimes keeping secrets does more harm than good? Or will she find out too late that snitches get stitches?

Shhh… Sixteen-year-old Seneca Allen is caught between a rock and a hard place. The rock is her best friend Valencia. The hard place is her other best friend Darren. Valencia and Darren are boyfriend and girlfriend but Darren seems to have forgotten that little fact. Some parents out of town lead to an unsupervised party on a school night and flips Seneca’s world upside down. In her young adult novel, “Snitch,” author L.J. Wilson attacks head on issues relevant to teenagers such as drugs, sex, peer pressure and wanting to be liked by one’s peers. Not having read a young adult novel in quite some time, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have found some young adult novels that are still not age appropriate or to the other extreme. I found a pretty good balance here. There was enough to keep me entertained as an adult and enough of an interesting story laced with messages to entertain teens. I really liked the main character Seneca. She was flawed and susceptible. Like many teens, she found herself in a few predicaments that could have turned out many ways based on how she chose to handle them. It wasn’t textbook, fairytale and just right. It wasn’t crash test dummy either. Instead, readers were with Seneca as she thought through how to handle situations. Her choices were not always the best and there were consequences. When she did right, she faired well. When she didn’t, she didn’t fair as well. There were consequences and lessons learned. Very practical. Very relatable. “Snitch” is engaging and will satisfy readers. I can easily recommend it to others. My only disappointment, and it’s a slight disappointment, is that with the way the book was written it was pretty definite. Seneca is a grown woman reflecting back on her youth. I am so not a sequel/trilogy/series bandwagon rider. However, I came away from this book feeling Seneca was a strong enough, likeable character with a cast of friends that could easily carry a series of the adventures (or misadventures) stemming around Seneca and the woes of being a teenager.
