High School Diva
Samantha Ricks, a tomboy by heart, could easily change her social status in school and live out the dreams of most teenage girls of being popular and pretty. To do so, she will have to pay the ultimate price that many of the women in her family have done before her. Samantha tries to stay true to herself, but the pitfalls (poverty, negative peer pressure, abuse, and teen pregnancy) of inner-city life begin to take a stranglehold on her, which causes her to spin out of control. It may take her no nonsense grandmother, Momma Ricks, who seems to be at the root of Samantha’s pain and sorrow, to keep Samantha focused on her goal of getting into college.

Hi I'm a teen from Camden New Jersey, i go to Creative Arts Morgan Village Academy.and this book touched my heart. To even see a book about a girl from Camden is amazing but i am wondering is she real??? It Brittany brought tears to my eyes.But to see pictures of The High(Castle on a Hill) is astounding. I WISH there were more books like this but I LOVED IT!!! i WISH THERE WAS A SEQUEL OR ANOTHER ONE.
So I read this book. Truly I just took a chance and I was not disappointed. There are truly some funny parts in this book, many wow moments, and something that happens which totally had my head spinning. I tell you the characters in this book are easy to become attached to and soon you will be rooting or cheering for them to overcome some of their obstacles. It is always good to find a good read.
