    Very powerful out coming book. I like how Mariposa is taking her sweet little time with Ezekiel and how all the girls came together in the end. Wonderful job Mrs. E-Fierce! I recommend this book to all the girls and boys out there; both pre-teens and especially teens.

    i read this in one day - May Day! really interesting - i thought that e-fierce did a pretty good job of getting into mariposa's head and presenting her as a talented confused adolescent woman who is secure about her Blackness but insecure about her "Latinaness" and sexual orientation.... sometimes it felt a little censored - most young people who might identify with mariposa would probably not say "don't come crying to me if by the end of the summer she dumps your butt." and some of her vocabulary was pretty sophisticated, but i guess she's supposed to be a smart girl... i also thought that the jessica character was well done - clearly on an ego-trip and vying with her boyfriend for control - not totally two-dimensional. but i'm not convinced that a novel is the best form for this story, or that it will appeal to its intended (?) audience. it will be interesting to find out...

    Fast Read - I've never read a book in 2 days! Never thought I'd be one of those people who say, "Oh, I just couldn't put this book down!" It's true - it could be because I'm a Queer Multiracial Latino and this book really related to me...masculinity, feminity, LGBT issues, coming-of-age, high school antics, domestic abuse, family neglect, the hip-hop generation, and discourse surrounding skin tone and cultural hierarchies. I definitely recommend this, and I want to read the next book in the series!!!

    I wanted to love this book. I really did. Unfortunately, I did not. The characters were underdeveloped to the point that it was difficult to care about them. In addition, there are entirely too many issues going on in this short 200 page novel. Teenage angst, drugs, homosexuality, parental alcoholism and absenteeism, divorce, teen pregnancy... It is very overwhelming.

    This is an excellent book to read with teenagers in a book-club sort of format. It might be best for pre-teens and early teenagers, but really serves as a jumping off tool for creating a safe productive space for your group.

    For a juvenile fiction book, this was okay. I could see a lot of young women relating to the issues in this book-- and it's got an overwhelmingly positive outlook.

    I did not like it. At all,period. The part about the main character kissing a girl is disgusting and innapropriate.
